Just picked up my D3 today along with the 24-70mm f2.8 lens and the SB-900. Batteries are charging as I type and cannot wait to play.

Well, I got some good use of the D3 today. Spent most of the day at the race track and then a fashion show late in the evening. The D3 was awsome and I will post some photos. I used the SB-900 at the fashion show as it was very dark and boy does the SB-900 have a lot of power. I had to regin it in a little.

I used the 70-200 f2.8 VR, the 105 f2.8 Micro VR and 24-70mm f2.8 on the D3 at the track and only the 24-70 f2.8 at the fashion show.

Great combo you have there, congratulations, price notwithstanding, I am sure I will be getting a '900, I too would love to see some shots with it.
