Reviews of the Nikon D3x from around the web. »

Ever since the simultaneous announcement of the Nikon D1H and D1X back in 2001 Nikon's professional D 'single digit' series has been split into two - the X series designed for high resolution applications such as fashion or landscape photography and the H series for high speed sports type photography (lower resolution but faster continuous shooting).

As expected from a professional camera, the D3X has a 100% coverage viewfinder, weather-sealed body and dual-control dials.
