ImagingResource reviews the Nikon D2Xs and concludes;
“While it represents only a relatively minor upgrade relative to the original D2X, the Nikon D2Xs remains an exceptionally strong competitor in the professional SLR market. It offers exceptional versatility through its dual-resolution, dual-speed design, satisfying the needs of sports shooters and studio photographers alike, in one superbly-constructed body. (If, like us, you’re initially skeptical about the value of the dual-resolution feature of the D2Xs, we highly encourage you to beg, borrow or rent a unit to work with for a day or two: We think you’ll come to love this feature as much as we did, once we got out and shooting with it.) Combine this with Nikon’s unrivalled Advanced Wireless Lighting system for TTL metering with multiple remote strobe units, and you have a system literally without peer, at least in the current state of the market. Our feeling about the camera is pretty well summed up in the list of pros and cons above: There’s just a load of things to like about this camera, and precious little to complain about! Kudos to Nikon on a beautifully designed pro SLR, a design that’s already stood the test of time in the form of the original D2X, and that likely has years of life left in it yet.”

CNET have reviewed the Nikon D2Xs where they rate the camera 8.8/10 and write;
“Images from the Nikon D2Xs are stunning. Under optimal conditions you can capture oodles of sharp detail with extremely accurate color and a wide dynamic range. The automatic white balance yielded a very minor yellowish cast under our labs’ tungsten lights, though the tungsten preset was much more neutral. The manual white balance provided the most neutral results…Overall, the Nikon D2Xs is an amazing camera. It is an extremely responsive, powerful imaging tool meant to tackle even the most challenging photographic situations, and it lives up to the task. Though there are other cameras that can top it in certain areas, you’d be hard-pressed to find a camera that is as versatile as this one. True, Canon’s 8-megapixel EOS-1D Mark II N can shoot at up to 8.5fps, but it doesn’t have the option of bumping up to 12 megapixels. Canon’s EOS-1Ds Mark II will always retain an edge for some photographers because of its higher pixel count and, more importantly, its full-frame sensor. But for Nikon shooters, you can’t get any better than the D2Xs. “

Let’sGoDigital have published a preview of the Nikon D2xs and they write;
“The introduction of the Nikon D2xs gives professional photographers yet again the choice of upgrading their digital workflow with the latest Nikon technology. The Nikon D2x already proved itself as a professional tool for the Pro and was awarded with diverse Award recognizing the importance of the top model of Nikon’s assortment of digital SLR cameras. Swift start-up times, high precision AF system and innovative Lighting system combined with high resolution 12.4 Megapixel images and a professional body are only some of the key features of the new Nikon D2xs digital SLR camera.”

Hi, even though my main camera is a D3 I still like to use my D2X. The problem is that the D2X is not a full frame camera. It is a good job that I only brought the one lens which is not much use with the full size sensor on the D3. Anyway glad that Nikon still supports the DX format, but I will only ever but FX lenses from now on.
