Pros: High ISO capabilities; especially low noise and high dynamic range; built extremly robust, in case of danger wildlife photographers can knock down even lions with the camera body; reliable AF;

Cons: low resolution (for me no problem), relative bad dynamic range at low ISO, but still enough to get good photos

Opinion: Working horse for reportage, wildlife, sport. War correspondents can take photos while toyota pick-ups with taliban are driving around them - the camera will be reliable under pressure. Every button is at the right place, no malfunction will happen at the wrong moment. You will get all pictures which are possible, at acceptable quality. Nowadays the camera is outdated due to its low resolution - but still in use, even with the one or the other professional.

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: Camera "photonics" ! Not only as a body, but also as a sensor.... always returns beautiful files, very workable, with the right saturation, sharpness, contrast etc .... Proven that there are defects and limitations in all other SLRs not belonging to the pro range .... including the excellent D610, D750, D800 etc ...

Cons: I could say weight and size..... But it is part of the "package". Lighter and smaller, it would become another machine and lose some of its merits.

Opinion: Awesome machine. In all. There is not an aspect for which it is not at least "excellent". The Autofocus "hooks" immediately and when you shoot it seems to shoot with a sniper rifle ... Very robust, very balanced, all controls in the right place! I also own a D750 and I own a D610.... Excellent SLRs, but which are inexorably a step behind the D3s, despite being much more recent and current projects. The files of the D3s I prefer them to those of all other machines ...... Even with its "only" 12 mpx (... or maybe just "thanks to its only 12 mpx") the files are of a quality for me at the top! The colors, for example, are "baked" immediately "right", without many machinations and post productions ... Used the D3s, which gives a feeling of stunning solidity, when you pick up a D750 you have the impression of shooting with a "camera" to keep in the cotton wool, because it could crack in the plastics at any moment.

Pros: Everything, not even weight which is a resource for balancing.

Cons: Nothing.

Opinion: I also bought it used with 30k shots about a year ago, I come from a D610 and I must say that between the two there is an abysmal difference, I continue to use them both but the first I take is always the D3S. For my way of photographing at the moment I find no faults, it lends itself to everything, including prohibitive environmental conditions, for what it may be worth my vote to this seasoned girl is a round 10.
