Few people besides myself would consider the Nikon D3 a “small” camera.  After shooting with a view camera for 20 years, though, I think of mine as a peashooter.  I’m currently awaiting delivery of a Phase 645 and P65+, so in the meantime I placated my impatience by picking up this great Nikon and pairing it with  a Zeiss 35mm F mount.  Though the D3 is a mere 12.5 mp (like most of the other Nikons) its shooting speed and high ISO performance are outstanding.  Files at 1600 are flawless and 3200, even 6400 are usable considering Capture 1 Pro’s considerable noise reduction capabilities.


Some recent images… One thing that has been really wonderful about the Nikon is the ease with which I can make great looking photographs and I find myself “playing” much more than I have in a while.  The quality of image that the Zeiss glass yields has awakened something in me that is totally invigorating…
