Predictable but nice. But too expensive for my pocket.

Hahaha nothing new except a poor 720p-24fps video. That's just silly when you think that some Nikon point and shoot have a 13.5 mpx sensor

Make that $6499 in Canada - even though our dollar is very very close to par with the U.S.

Moose Peterson reviewed the D3s and sounds like he was pleased with the noise control.

Vistek (Toronto) is selling this camera for $5399 now. That's an $1100 drop since my post one month ago.  I'm not sure how much of that is the price dropping and how much is due to Nikon Canada dropping prices of all their products this week thanks to our strong currency.
