Gut feeling on D3x

See also Dec 23 entry. I’m going to go out on a limb here with a gut feeling based on very limited shooting, reserving the right to criticize later—I’ve just reviewed some D3x field images I shot today. It’s late (nearly midnight, Santa Dad needs to get moving), and my eyes are tired, but they’re seeing stuff that is extremely impressive, like 30 second exposures in shitty light at ISO 50 that look like...like medium format (I reviewed the 28MP Mamiya DL28 not long ago). No, not exactly the same thing, I’m talking a “feel” thing.

What I’m seeing is very impressive image quality, looking as unprocessed and natural as I’ve yet seen in a digital SLR. I think Nikon took its time with the D3x, and it shows. And no, I do not think that the Sony A900 is just as good based on what I’m seeing—there’s a lot more to an image than resolution, and the D3x seems to have some secret sauce mixed in.
