I am just overwhelmed with this camera. I can not believe the quality and great feeling this camera has compared to the Fuji S2. I hope you enjoy your camera, If you have not touched one you will be amazed.
I came from the same boat as you, the Fuji S2. I can't believe he differences. Out of this world. I am holding onto the S2 though until I can afford another X then I might retire it. From one S2 owner to another, I hear that some S3 owners are not as crazy about it as they were with the S2. hmmmmm. Wonder why?

I considered the S3, long and hard (after all the S2 was a great first SLR). I just could not see enough of an advantage to upgrading. In fact the one thing that kept me from buying immediately when it came out was the expectation of the D2X. Boy, I'm glad that I waited. I did not post very much on dpreview.com, but I remember you and a couple of others who switched to the D2X. Everyone's happiness with the camera helped me in making the commitment.
I am going to take the camera out this weekend and will hope to post a few pics.

I am so Jealous!! We (Canuks) can't seem to get enough
bodies shipped to Canada to even put a dent in demand.
Congratulations on the X! Grumble, grumble...........

Actually that is where I ordered it from. But they can't
sell it if Nikon doesn't deliver it. I suppose I should have
ordered it before it came out, but I wanted to see some
results before I plunked down my money.
Did you see my post about Kodak strap?
Robin Horlock said:Melissa,
Well it is a real drag waiting for it. Just like waiting for Christmas!
But the up side is I get to read all the feedback about the camera.
And hearing the good and bad about the machine. I at least got the
chance to play with one. I don't know if that was a good thing or
not, now I know what it will feels like to fire off eight fps.
But it will be here soon enough, then I can ask all of you that
have the camera already, really ridiculous questions.
