    Is the price differnce worth the s? Is it a bad idea to go for the Non "S" D2H. What is a fair price for a D2H?
  2. Lar, Good luck finding a new D2H its been discontinued! I wish I purchased one when Nikon had a fire sale on them ($2000).

    You get far less noise at high ISO with the D2HS. And they have improved the CF card door. Otherwise, nothing worth writing home about.
  4. If you have a D2HS can you tell me if the high ISO noise is different when using NEF?

    I'm also curious on what a D2H is going for these days....I think it is about $1400-1600.

    Paid two days ago from a local premium camera store $1400 for a very clean D2H.

    Why do you want to move from the D1 to the D2H? Properly lit I find the D1 easier to use. Yeah laugh at me, but the D1 has never failed me. Low lights, yes, more MP, yes, the D2H is better, but the D1 is one heck of a camera.

    Dial it in and it goes. Believe it or not I find the metering on the D1 more consistent than on my D70 and D2H - I have to be doing something wrong.
