    Low light or higher ISO limitations, lower MP (if that matters to you). You can always augment any camera with a flash if the higher ISO is a limiting factor. Good luck with your purchase.

    Ver - There was a discussion here before when the D300 was new about this and most would agree that the D300 was the better camera. A used D300 is now at around P40T or so. Cheaper than the D2x. If you need a larger grip the MB-D10 for the D300 is very good.

    Isn't 63k a bit overpriced for a camera technology that's almost 7 years old? What does the d300/d7k cannot do (critical to your own style of shooting) that you're even seriously considering of spending money that much, pardon for the noob question here but I have never used a pro body before

    there is a post in tipid pc for a used d2x for 68k. at that price i'd get a used d90 or d300 and a lens or two or a d7000 and a lens

    just because it was top of the line and still in good condition doesnt mean it will still command a high price. its old-tech surpassed by current circuits that are at least 5 years ahead of it.

    my thoughts Exactly, the high price is utterly ridiculous if you ask me, you'll get a brand spanking new d7k that is a lot more capable, totally a lot more capable (minus the burst speed) at a cheaper price, only a compulsive collector with plenty of cash to burn would fall into that

    For macro, the D2x will beat the D7000 head-to-head.

    If you are into macrophotography, then D2x is the right choice over the D7000. Just google the sensor design and color profile of D2x and compare it with the D7000, you will find out why the D2x is a better camera over the D7000 inspite of the fact that the D2x is considered by most as an old technology.
