Digital Camera Review has done an in-depth analysis of the Nikon D3 and highly recommends this pro-dSLR. The Nikon D3 has a 'full frame' 12.1 megapixel sensor which means its almost identical to a 35mm film.
The D3 makes a perfect companion to sports photographers and photojournalists thanks to its ultra high-speed shooting capabilities. Another advantage of the D3 is that it handles higher ISOs brilliantly and there is hardly any image noise in high ISO modes.
The reviewer concluded by saying:
"Designed for sports and photojournalism, I'd suspect the D3 might find an additional following among wedding photographers who prefer to shoot in natural light. The camera's big sensor results in the lack of a crop factor for lenses, so users who can't get close to their subjects may well do better with a DX Nikon that maximizes lens length. Otherwise, the D3 is simply a state of the art, high-performance pro camera, and few of us who've been fortunate enough to get our hands on one would argue that it isn't worth every penny of that lofty price tag."
