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

Pros: Wonder of technique

Cons: Are we kidding me?

Opinion: Finding cons on D3 is pure presumption. I ask myself: "D4, D5, D6.... they did even better?!? But how is that possible?" Amazing! My first FF. Tried only a few minutes with the wonderful 70-210 f4... What can I say? I immediately pulled it to 5000/6400 indoor with little light and the photos are wonderful, also thanks to the subjects, my kittens ... In your hand you hold that it is a pleasure. Fast, tough, mythical. It's a dream for me to shoot with the D3. Thanks to you from Juza for the reviews and the masters of photography that help me grow and thanks to Rce foto, which sold me this dream, the D3, at a very low price.

Pros: Aesthetics, robustness, sense of solidity, feeling, shutter sound, battery life, current used price, image quality!

Cons: As someone has already written: the fact that it is not eternal and the day will come when it will abandon me... but the way I use it, it's going to take many years ^_^

Opinion: I immediately begin by saying that ISO, MEGAPIXEL and PESO for me are absolutely not negative aspects.... I thought about it a lot before I bought it and in the end I concluded this: ISO: usually shooting during the day, outdoors or indoors with controlled lights... I almost never shoot over 200 iso... very few times at 400 and only rarely at 800. Out of habit or because I was used to 1600 and beyond I avoid it... right or wrong that it is is my modus and I do not need to take home the photo at any cost, so I only shoot when conditions allow. MEGAPIXEL: "quantity does not mean quality...." here the megapixels are 12 ... but 12 quality ... and what quality.... so all pixels are full of detail, no noise or fried pixels, what do I need 20 or more megapixels where half are to be thrown away or retouched and take up hundreds of megas of space? I don't do big prints, at most 30x40, if I audience on IG or FB I just need 2/3 megapixels and if I look at them on the 4k monitor with 12 Megapixels I go far beyond the screen size. I believe that 12 megapixels in 2020 is absolutely even more than enough !!! (for my use) WEIGHT: honestly this was the look that scared me the most .... everyone who told me about this car told me it's a studio machine, to put on an easel and leave it there because of the excessive weight!!! ... Well, are we kidding? The lost machine 1.3 kg is perfectly balanced and balanced, as soon as you take it in your hand the feeling is crazy, I honestly imagined it moooolto heavier! It is not a feather but in the end it is not so much heavier than a normal reflex with battery grip or with an important lens. It's beautiful to hold and carry around... of course you have to be passionate... because the results it gives and the pleasantness of the shot it gives, are worth having to carry a few more hects. Luckily I bought a splendid specimen to say the least... in fact let's say immaculate with less than 60k shots... it is a wonderful machine, perfect, precise, it does not make a fold, everything in the right place, every detail is practical, comfortable and well studied, I will not want to part with it anymore ... and when you then look at the files you are literally grounded.... I hope it lasts me forever!!! I obviously recommend it to everyone for a unique experience... but buy it only if it is well maintained.... it's absolutely worth !!!

Pros: It's a flagship, space viewfinder, it's not afraid of the mountains, photo quality.

Cons: The 2007 sensor obviously cannot compete with modern ISO > 3200. Live view is there but it's not there.

Opinion: I am a photoadamator, I bought this historic room in 2020 at an unbeatable price (13 years after the release, it was the FIRST FX Nikon). My previous car was a Nikon d3100, which is the entry level. This camera gave me the opportunity to enter the world of photography holding a unique and irreplaceable piece, from which I learned a lot. I start from the crosshairs saying that, after getting used to the circular one of the D3, I can no longer shoot with any other machine (only the D8xx has the same). Its circular construction brings the eye directly into the lens and elisses the undesvolved lateral vision. Continuing, the top-of-the-range setting allows you to handle the handle as you can't do on any other body with battery grip. This allows you to organize WB, ISO and Q separately from time and diaphragms thanks to the presence of the lower screen and dedicated keys (UNFORTUNATELY NOT BACKLIT!). In a nutshell, when small objectives are mounted, the ergonomics are perfect and each finger corresponds to a command. The "large DSLR body" therefore allows you to be more and more efficient, but weighs a lot. However, this is an advantage for me: if important canvases are mounted, the weight of the body balances the lenses both by hand but above all on tripods, while if light lenses are mounted the weight gives handling and does not weigh too much. However, what really makes this object unique is the superior tropicalization. Experience has taught me that for mountain excursions from September to May it is not possible to replace the Nikon Dx series, such as the D3, with other body cars. In fact, its construction allows you to always be ready to shoot not taking care of the mixed ice snow, but above all it does not suffer from the difficult moments when the climber is forced not to be able to take particular care of the safety of the camera. Snow, polar cold and small bumps due to climbing are not a problem (if you use your head a minimum). Imagine you have a crazy D850 with the tipper screen... The ISO estate is that of 2007. In 2007 this was nikon's first digital full frame sensor (Canon still didn't have them) and at the time getting to 4000 ISO as the D3 gets there was unthinkable. Now a Z5 arrives without problems at 10,000 ISOs, it has been 13 years, but it has to be said that the D3s represents a further leap high and also reaches 12,000 excellent ISOs. Personally with this machine I never exceed 4000 ISO but at the need you can use the 6400, higher ISO I would say no. So the merits of this body are limited to the "body"? ?. The autofocus is very precise and fast, the exposures and WB perfect, the CF cards very fast. The volley is excellent (11 fps) and allows you to capture the action dramatically when flanked by a good goal. Thanks to these features the images are fabulous, they almost never need a slight correction, the colors are typical of the best of Nikon so at the absolute top. These 12 mpx are great, but if you need to print bigger then maybe you need a 45mpx, but honestly I don't see any difference between 12 and 24 if you use your smartphone. Finally: a car to photograph and fall in love with.

Pros: Af. Construction. No unnecessary embroidery.

Cons: Weight but manageable.

Opinion: I've been using it for 10 years. THE DSLR. It has a Swedish sniper AF, a solid construction from high carpenter. I also nail the tiles for the shelves. Absence of all the lazy electronics minchionates that put on new toys. For the preview of the exhibition there is the display meter. The live view would be there as well but it's a sloth. With this machine you shoot nose from the bottom or from above because in the time you start to make 10 shots, with new toys you make one... Blurred. It has a button for each function and I see the menu once a year. It comes to 6400 iso almost clean indeed with a nice grain manageable in the post. Who needs it most? I leave the races to the kids. Perfect white balance. Ready-made jpeg when you burglars to produce posts. With 12 megapixels I make A3 prints and 40x60 albums and do not enlarge to 200% to monitor. These are sick games. I mean, let's give this gift. Make yourself a serious car. In fact, in this case it is the machine that chooses you. So good luck.
