D2X 5 5 7 7
Work horse I have had 2 D2X cameras since they were introduced. Both cameras have worked flawlessly. April 15, 2011
brilliant in it's day, still great now i own two D2x bodies and combined with a range of Nikon AF-D and AF-S lend there's nothing other than a D3 to drag me away. Resoltion is superb, performance from the tough body with weathersealing is awesome (I'm shooting outdoors 24/7 for angling publications) , and the control and menu system I simple and based around common sense rather than fancy gizmos. High ISO use I good up to 800 and the HI settings have their use, although compared against more modern bodies they aren't t that relevant. AF is fast and precise thanks to 11 AF points. Exposure system I reliable, especially with an SB800 attached. I bought mine used for £650 each and o have to say they're them most user-friendly cameras I've owned in the digital age - before I had the excellent D200 ANC before that, the appaling Canon 10D and the much improved 30D. a brilliant used buy these days September 24, 2010

Had an issues where this older style lens would not allow for the change of the aperture thru the aperture rings on a D2x. It there something wrong with the camera or lens? Lens ok on other camera body. Could I have set something wrong in the menu? Does the D2x have a factory re-set shortcut like later models?

Answer: 
Yup, this was my problem. Custom Setting Menu, option f6: Command dials. I had changed this for some un-know reason. It was an issue because I was always using DX lens. When I went to the "D" lens, well.

Answer: 
Usually when using a lens with an aperture ring (D lens) on a digital SLR, its necessary to lock the aperture ring at the highest F number (smallest opening) and then control the aperture using the camera's command dials. The camera will display an fEE error if the aperture ring is any other setting. This is normal and does not indicate a problem with the camera or the lens.

If you are shooting in Aperture Priority (A) or Manual (M) modes, you can change the settings in the D2X to allow you to use the aperture ring to manage aperture. To do this, go to the Custom Setting Menu, navigate to the Controls section and select option f6: Command dials. Arrow down to Aperture Setting, then arrow to the right to see the options. Arrow down to choose Aperture ring, then arrow to the right to select OK and save your settings. Keep in mind that this change will only work if you are shooting in A or M modes. Other modes will still display an fEE error when the ring is not locked in place.

Answer: 
The aperture is set by the camera body not the lens. The aperture ring should be set at F/22 and locked, this goes for all digital bodies, the aperture ring was for use on older film bodies without aperture control.

Answer: 
Although the D300 is newer technology, the D2X is a professional model that was a Nikon flagship just 6 years ago, I own a D2X and feel you can not go wrong with the purchase of this camera. I have over 160,000 clicks on my shutter and this camera has NEVER been anything but perfect, in all aspects...

Answer: 
Since you are doing models and portfolios I assume lighting will not be a concern. With that said I would select the D2x. pro body, features are a switch away not in a menu, different shooting menus for common assignements, to name a few reasons. The camera fits in the hand much better that the D300, even with the extra battery housing attached. I believe a better shutter life is also expected. Alway try to get the shutter release information before you make an offer. Good luck.

Answer: 
If you do not have either of them yet, I would suggest you get the D7100 or something higher if you can afford it ,such as the D800, D-3 series, or the Mighty D4. If you already have the D2x, then getting a D3200 is a downgrade.
