  • True Nikon pro SLR compatible with most Nikon F-mount lenses
  • 12.4-megapixel CMOS DX sensor with 4,288 x 2,848-pixel images
  • ISO from 100 to 800 ("ISO Boost" to 1,600 and 3,200)
  • Very fast shutter response and cycle times
  • Faster wireless image transfer capability with optional 802.11g transmitter accessory

With a gap of nearly three years since the introduction of the D1X, we were beginning to wonder about Nikon's fate in the high-end SLR world. Adding to these concerns, the high-speed D2H struggled with image quality, particularly at high ISOs, and was overall less than what many Nikon shooters had been hoping for. With the release of the D2X though, Nikon has re-established itself as a leader at the high end of the pro SLR market. An amazingly versatile camera, the D2X is able to satisfy the needs of both studio and sports shooters, delivering excellent image quality, amazing dynamic range (particularly in the shadow end of the tonal scale), and the shooter's choice of either extreme speed at good resolution, or good speed at excellent resolution. Digital aspects aside, the Nikon D2X is also a superb shooter's camera, with an excellent "feel" in the hand and a fast and fluid user interface. Combine all this with Nikon's Advanced Wireless Lighting system for TTL metering with multiple strobe units, and the new WT-2A Wireless transmitter, and you have an array of capabilities that's all but unequalled. Kudos to Nikon on the D2X; I only hope they can build enough to meet demand.
