got mine! Hip Hip Horray!!! Requested it be overnighted to me and will come on Friday. I have been following with great interest most of the D2x threads here and on DPR and on Nikonians and so far other than a few comments regarding focus of objects moving to or away from the camera it seems to be state of the art. It seems that the jury is still actually out on this issue. Since no one is giving classes and we are all learning on the fly it may still be to some extent useer error. If it is not, I hope it is something that can be resolved with a firmware fix. I know that Nikon is taking every complaint very seriously. They need for this camera body to succeed beyond expectation. I think so far that they have. You have all been where I am at one point and know how excited I am. Thank you all for your positive and interesting posts and responses.
