Very Nice

This camera works very nice and has already been getting me some good business. The shutter buttons are a little bit softer than my previous D40 but that is to be expected. The noise levels are tolerable at the mid to high ISOs but even then, they can be easily fixed in Lightroom 3. Camera is fairly heavy with added accessories but you get used to holding it after a while. Shutter speeds are fast and responsive and the controls are very easily in reach. I like having to command dials (1 in front and 1 in back - for both shutter releases) because everything is right in my reach: I barely have to look at the camera for info --- just look through the viewfinder. I do recommend this camera but only until one can afford a D3X. In a few years they will be just as affordable as this D2X is right now. From what I hear the added megapixels obviously help and it works great at higher ISOs.

But, all in all, the D2x is an awesome camera to use today in spite of being about 6 years old.

Rock Solid Professional Camera

As a professional, I need a camera that can take abuse and still be reliable.

After fiddling with lesser cameras like the D80 and D200, the D2x is a breath of fresh air. It is built like a tank. It gives the impression you could drop it down a flight of stairs, pick it up and continue shooting.

It has the ability to shoot 5 fps in 12.4MP mode, or 8 fps in cropped mode (6.8MP). The most noticeable performance improvement from the D200 to the D2x is the autofocus motor. The D2x autofocus is super-fast and super-quiet. You can put a giant lens on there and it still focuses quickly and accurately.

Another massive improvement is battery life. The D200 got about 300 photos in Raw+Fine mode. With the D2x I'm getting closer to 3,000.

Available accessories include the WT-2a wireless transmitter, which will connect via 802.11g to your computer running Nikon Camera Control Pro. The software will control all settings on the camera, and you can also use the software to immediately show a full-screen preview on a computer, useful for studio work.

The jump from 10.1 megapixels (D200) to 12.4 (D2x) is not relevant for most applications. I can easily make a 24x36 inch print from a 10.1 MP shot. However, the other improvements make this a clear choice for any professional.

This camera is an amazing hunk of technological marvelousness!

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

This camera is an amazing hunk of technological marvelousness. And it's a lot of fun too. Pick one up and slip on a good lens and enjoy it. There's a lot of life left in this camera and the creative possibilities are endless. I've been using a D300 for several years and still do. Yet I find when shooting with the D2x I pay a lot more attention to what really matters in photography - composition, exposure, subject, etc. The D300 is sometimes too intuitive and I've gotten a bit lazy using it. Now shooting with the D2x, the fun and excitement is back!

Is it perfect? Of course not. The view screen is small and not so advanced compared to what's out there. The ISO settings are sufficient, though less than today's advanced tech. Aside from that, it's perfectly perfect for me.

Solid pro camera with the DX sensor.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

The D2x is now two generations removed from Nikon's latest, the D4, however that doesn't mean it isn't a great camera. The biggest limitation of the camera is the DX sensor otherwise you won't be disappointed with this rugged professional body. Some will complain the camera is too large, personally I prefer the larger cameras as they feel better in my hand. Granted it probably isn't the best choice for a vacation camera but other than that, I just enjoy working with it. This cameral makes a great backup and has good battery life with the En-El4 (it does not require the EN EL4a battery). The small LCD screen on the D2x won't wow you compared to today's cameras but limit your chimping and just shoot it!

Workhorse pro camera.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

The D2X is an old camera. It was the Nikon pro flagship until around 2006. It sold for about 5,000 bucks, but today you can get one for under 1 grand. Is it worth it? Well, it depends. If you really want to spend the 5 grand you keep in your pocket, don't waste your money and buy a D3 or a D3s. If you have 2000 bucks to spare, get a D700 or a D300s. But if you are in a budget and want a full-featured pro camera, the D2x is a very good alternative.

The D2x is a large, heavy camera, not the kind of camera that you will like to haul during a nature walk. Equipped with a Nikon 24-70mm (which is what I use), it will weigh in at about 15 lbs. It harbors an APS sensor (unlike the D3, which has a full-frame sensor). Its resolution is only 12 MP (unlike the new D3s, which goes up to 24 MP); however, I use mine at 6 MP about 80% of the time. Its sensitivity is rated up to ISO 800 (the D700 is rated at ISO 6400, and can be boosted to 25600). I often use my D2x boosted up to ISO 3200 with quite acceptable results, but from what I have read this is not common. So, with all these limitations, why would anyone want to invest good money in a camera that is already "obsolete"? It all depends on your uses, but I have the following reasons:

1. Lightning-fast, accurate auto-focus, even under very low light conditions. Try to get anything like it with any of the consumer Nikon models.
2. Compatibility with pretty much any Nikon lens made since 1970 (will have problems handling pre-AI mount lenses, but will handle AI, AI-s, AF, AF-D, AF-S and anything else invented by Nikon.
3. Extremely accurate light-metering.
4. A workhorse battery that will hold enough charge to take up to 1600 shots.
5. Compatibility with most TTL Nikon flashes (unlike the newer Nikons, which will work well with the Speedlight SB600, SB800 or SB900, but will have to be used in manual mode with anything produced earlier). Although, if you can spend 5K on a camera, you should have no trouble purchasing a $400 flash!
6. The shutter should be good for an average of 300,000 actuations. A D90's shutter is rated at 100,000. I bought my camera with about 12,000 actuations, which means that it should, in theory, last me longer than 2 D90's.

The bottom line is that I really like the D2x. I use it for all kinds of stuff, including photos of concerts using available light. In due time, once the D4s come around, I will probably retire it and get a D3. But for the time being, I am very happy with it.
