Unless you happen to be a professional studio photographer, it's unlikely that Nikon's new D3X is aimed at you. That never stopped anyone from looking at such equipment and wondering what it might be like to own (without stumping up the $8000 asking price of course). The D3X comes with a 24.5 megapixel sensor (that means shots at 6048 x 4032), and can shoot bursts of five frames a second at full resolution. You get a regular ISO range of 100-1600 (expandable to ISO 50 and ISO 6400), with supposedly no grain at ISO 1600, as well as dual CF card slots and a 51 point autofocus system (which can also track and lock on to moving subjects). All that and a battery that claims 4400 shots from a single charge (naturally, it aint small). You can see some impressive shots taken with the D3X here.
