Pros: Purity of 8.5 µm pixels, reliability, ergonomics, robustness, image and mechanical quality, lightweight files, speed

Cons: 12 MP, tricky AF point control in portrait position, heft, no video, no IBIS, portability

Opinion: It might sound crazy, but I bought a 2007 camera in 2022 with 12 MP. It's a bold, reliable, really loud and heavy but precise, bulky though beautiful, top ergonomic camera with below 8000 shutter actuations and in pristine condition. No vibrational sensor cleaning, no video, slow life view AF, just 1470 g pure photographic full frame ergonomic 8.5 µm pixel power and ISO up to 6400 machine that will never let you down. The camera responds fast with high precision and the ergonomic design helps with direct access. Of course, don't expect clean ISO 6400 and above, cropping the heck out of 12 MP pictures and video at all. The size can be an issue, but somehow it helps for a steady camera position. It was built for speed and that shows even today: responsive operation and a quick, precise shutter with up to 9 frames per second. The precision and speed of the AF is more than enough for all but the most demanding purposes, everything you use just works. Focus on what's important, the composition and the decisive moment, the D3 does everything in the background, instantly, reliably and without fiddling. Used wisely, the results are great even by today's standards and for me there is always something special in the colors, the sharpness, the feather-light raw files and the printed photos. There are a lot of better and more modern cameras out there, but this gem is an all time star, a true legend and one of it's own. I might have to replace my DSLRs with mirrorless options in future, but this beauty will stay until my last breath. It's that good. Still.

Pros: Solidity, autofocus, ergonomics

Cons: Weight

Opinion: I state that I don't use it for work, photography for me is just passion. It's perfect, no frills, solid, with a large and bright optical viewfinder. But it's also old in the whole project, it's a boulder, it has 12 mpx, it doesn't record video, the burst of shutter today makes you smile compared to recent cameras. What else can I say? Those who still have it keep it, now for what it costs on the second-hand market it is no longer convenient to give it away, it is an icon. Mine still has mechanics and autofocus p e r f e t t s, no hesitation, with any lens. It returns good and very light files; I honestly don't shoot in JPEG so I don't care if the file is ready; probably on this side it suffers from a certain antiquity of the in-camera processing algorithms, the recent Nikons are probably much better for those looking for jpeg. It's an amazing machine that comes at a ridiculously low price.

Pros: A historic camera.

Cons: Enormous.

Opinion: This camera is really challenging to use (despite my big hands), but on the other hand it gives a feeling of solidity and resistance remarkable. From the photographic point of view, despite its now reduced resolution, from results that do not disfigure with the latest sensors both in terms of color rendering and detail.

Pros: Current value for money.

Cons: It depends on your needs, if you do not need to have a billion pixels, none except weight and size.

Opinion: It is a dated camera body, so difficult to find with a few shots, but if you are lucky enough to find one, and if you have not been infected by the fever of high resolution, it is the perfect machine to work, in fact 12 megapixels are the perfect resolution to have quality files and little load on the computer, with the no small advantage of streamlining the entire post-production and storage process of photos. It is possible to obtain prints of the highest quality and large, even cropping, if you do not make mistakes during shooting, and the images have a much more natural and pleasant appearance, compared to those obtained with modern sensors, which being too sharp, almost always have an unreal and I would say surgical look, which in some cases can be fine, but in many others it is not, for example when photographing people. Let's say that in a world where everyone is launching headlong into the new mirrorless systems, dazzled by the promises of marketing, to have less weight and greater quality, these machines represent a solid alternative for those who do not have the opportunity to faint to chase the latest news on the market, but who wish to have professional equipment. I think I was one of the first to switch from the SLR system to the mirrorless system, now many years ago, I can say that the only gain in weight and bulk is obtained with the micro 4/3 and apsc systems and not with the FF systems. because if on the one hand the camera bodies are slightly smaller and lighter, on the other the FF lenses are even more bulky and heavy than those SLRs we were used to. As for the optical quality instead, it is true that the new lenses dedicated to mirrorless FF are on paper of superior quality, but most of the improvements are at the software level and not optical, and in any case distinguishable only by those who, obsessed with these parameters, spend hours in front of the monitor looking at magnifications at 400 percent of the photos taken from the window of their own home to the neighbor's dog. Joking aside, unless you have a passion for photographing birds, and you need to make strong crops, since filling the frame with a goldfinch is not easy, I would say that 12megapixels are more than enough for all other uses, and this camera can still have its say great!

Pros: ,Comfortable to hold, intuitive, solid, high iso, battery life... in other words fantastic.

Cons: Finding cons to this machine is really difficult, in my opinion none.

Opinion: Bought 3 days ago by a sports photographer who has ceased the activity, paid little more than nothing, has 430,000 shots, taken only for the curiosity to try a FF ... well tomorrow I put on sale my D300s and D90, and I look for one with a few shots, from my point of view is simply fantastic, a few pixels? They are enough and advance from my point of view, I tried it with different objectives, 85-1.8 -50-1.8- 28-70-2.8 etc ... up to the mediocre 35-70 3.3-4.5, well even with this lens it gave me more than acceptable results I would say good, I do not feel absolutely heavy, it is comfortable to hold commands at the reach of "fingers" are the first impressions of course, but I do not think I will change my mind easily. Just read the reviews before mine and look at the photos here, thanks to juza and its subscribers, often really competent. Rating 10
