Of course, numeric ratings are one thing, but seeing field results is quite another—the D3x offers stunning results, a home-run for Nikon, if only the cost part of the equation can be dealt with rationally. Which is to say if you can afford it, and you want the very best, there is no better choice available today. Hopefully this will prompt Canon to not offer their second-best effort, as they did with the EOS 1Ds Mark III.
I trust experience in real-world field use over any lab tests, since there are factors that numbers do not capture. The D3x does not disappoint in the field, or in the lab.
