    I am stuck in the middle right now and really need some help. I just sold my D300 and can get the d3 right now. Or I can sell my sony v1u and but the d3s. Should I keep my video camera and just get the d3?

    Note: My video camera does not get much use anymore.

    the only difference between the D3 and D3s is the video and the D3s is about a stop cleaner in the upper ISO's.

    At ISO 100-800 they pretty much look identical.

    Adorama has the D3s in stock. If you don't use your video camera no more, I would get rid of it.

    No they don't.

    If you add it to your cart, then they tell you it's on back order.

    Getting to the point I am considering trading off the Nikon gear for Canon.

    Only because stuff is available with Canon.

    ok, not i'm just going to play devil's advocate..

    Why not the D700? It's a D3, with the bottom grip chopped off, slightly slower, slightly smaller VF, 1 card slot, but with a pop up flash and a heck of alot cheaper too.
