Pros: Ergonomics, High ISO, Durability, Integrated vertical grip, Single digit Nikon's top quality flagship

Cons: Limited cropping due to "low" resolution nowadays.

Opinion: Coming from top Nikon DX camera at the time, the D7100, Nikon D3s felt so good in my, not big hands, right from the start. I regret I eventually sold it and went to D4, every day. Don't get me wrong, the D4 is absolutely fantastic, but the D3s, as my first Nikon single digit pro body, it is greatly missed. Sure it's heavy but I always loved heavy cameras, it felt sturdier and more stable in my hands. Especcialy paired with my favorite AF Nikon 80-200mm f/2.8 D ED. This combination gave me superb results, even at 200mm and f/2.8. I would get it again in a second if I could only afford another body.

Pros: Build quality, fast AF, low noise performance, ergonomic, button lay-out.

Cons: None

Opinion: One of the most reliable camera's I have owned. Currently working with a Nikon D4 but I decided to once more buy a D3s as a backup camera. I have worked extensively with the D3S in the past so for me it is the best option when it comes to owning a second camera that I can fully trust in the field. Balances well with longer and heavier lenses and can take a beating due to its sturdiness and weather sealing.

Pros: Construction, controls in the right place, high iso seal, usability in all or almost all situations

Cons: at the moment I don't see any

Opinion: In the end after so many hesitations and also going against the current to certain tips I took it.... just over 200K shots and the first impression coming from D600 bhe other music. The construction as I expected it solid without compromising buttons in position for me absolutely perfect. The 12Mpx that scared me at first are absolutely not a problem and it is a machine that teaches you to photograph without thinking too much about crop in post. For now I have done only a few thousand shots and I still have to deepen the knowledge of all the peculiarities for me that I am not a professional is the top for now.

Pros: Image quality and raw workability, HIGH ISO seal, AF, white balance, double slot, battery life, general ergonomics, viewfinder, construction

Cons: Weight and size, HD-only video, Quiet shot not really quiet

Opinion: In contrast to the current scenario in 2021 I decided to continue to stay on reflex and buy this body replacing the trust d700, more than I expected the machine I find very current, for me the 12mpx were never a problem and considering the investment on the af-d series optics are the right ones for this format; the ergonomics of the machine are not discussed, the precise af, white balance and perfect exposure already in the car, perhaps on the landscape photography sins in recoveries not being invariant iso sensor and with only 12 env; the files are very similar to what I was already working on d700, in post there is little to fix with the advantage of high iso seal up to 12800 usable (more than I hoped); in short, she is a nikon flagship and there is little to do, as far as the council is today strongly.

Pros: Solidity, ergonomics, ISO sealing, tropicalization, efficiency, reliability, battery life, completeness of functions

Cons: Weight, footprint, display, closes the shadows a bit, lacks eye focus, 12 Mp, live view, video

Opinion: Writing in 2020 a small opinion on a machine body that saw birth in 2009 is ungenerous. On the other hand, it must be said that despite the numerous moons that have marked the life of this model, its performance is completely current and they do not have much to envy to the most powerful and current offers of the market (as far as I am concerned only the eye focus function, which is not indispensable). The body weighs but is of an impressive solidity. The lenses would weigh anyway, so it's not a real limit. The clutter, compared to an ML is sensitive, but thanks to the generous size of the machine body it is easily held and without creating fatigue for the hand, especially for those, like me, who use very little shoulder strap. Fingers are always relaxed and do not feel fatigue. The controls are at your fingertips. Hardly there is a need to enter the menus to set the machine. All very fast and clear. Excellent ISO sealing and with new noise processing programs, it's even mind-blowing. Great predictive pursuit and more than good the speed of the burst. The image quality, despite the 12 Mp is excellent, even in case of decisive cuts (I have never printed large formats like A1). It tends to close the shadows, but when you know it, you handle it without any problems. A lady who despite her age still has a lot to say and does not yet suffer the passage of time. Not suitable for those who are attracted by the lightness and reduced size of modern machine bodies, perfect for those who want a camera of great substance, who is not afraid of anything and for those looking for a used with an unsurpassed price value.
