Pros Very powerful platform; does it all
Cons None, really.
Summary At my work, I've been using Nikon digital SLR's for about five years. They are everything you'd expect from a professional quality camera. The CNet reviewer claimed that a con with this camera was its weight. Frankly I expect it to be heavy; it's got a metal frame, heavy battery, and tons of electronics packed inside. When you're in the market for a camera of this caliber, you expect a certain amount of heft.
If you're considering this camera, it pays to do some research. Canon's have equally excellent cameras, but just like Nikon's, they have their flaws. The big selling point to many is the full-size sensor. If that's sooo important to you, then don't look back; go get your Canon. But if Nikon's philosophy is more up your alley (The last I heard, the next evolution of the D2x will still have the under-sized sensor), then I can tell you you won't be disappointed!
Pros Controls designed for easy access that allows changing all key variables. This camera takes tremendous images. I'm considering upgrading to the 24.5 megapixel Nikon D3X, but it's hard to imagine how much better it could be than the D2Xs.
Cons Not anything, really.
Summary The most important thing is the end result. This camera produces outstanding images every time.

Pros Unbelievable image quality, feels perfect in large hands, very quick load up time.
Cons Heavy & 1.5x chip makes my wide angle lenses somewhat ineffective in certain situations.
Summary Work bought it, so I can't complain about the cost, but personally I could not justify spending that much on one for personal use.
I've used canon 30d, 20d, rebel xt & xti and the feel of Nikon cameras are far better. I have plenty of experience with these Nikon's (going back to the days of D1X) and they have made vast improvements in the feel and positioning of buttons on their camera's over the years, but if you are looking to purchase a SLR and you have large hands, go with any Nikon dSLR, the canons are too small and you will feel like you are pinching it rather than holding it.
Pros Multifeature professional camera
Cons expensive "upgrade"
Summary I just got it, more to followUpdated
