Putting this out there to avoid hijacking other thread again Randy, D3s sufficient and not worth the difference in your opinion? Moving up from D7000 recently lost and I need to replace it in the next month or so. Main uses: Capturing Family moments, events, grandbabies AND Following our Local HS Football team. Can't seem to break away from day to day activities to do other sports, but I may at some point. I am no expert by any means, even though have done the FB pics for a few years now. Advanced Hobbyist maybe. Of course Kids/Parents are always saying, Great Pics, but those who shoot much can see the suttle differences, out of focus, wrong focal point, etc. Started w/D90, ended up with D7000 and currently renting a D7200. The action from the D7200 tells me I NEEDED to upgrade anyway. Also need to upgrade my 70-200 to the VII. Would the D3s cover all my needs? Not worth paying a little extra for a good used D4? Thanks, Dave~!
