We've had bad weather here for a couple of weeks ( not as bad as China though) so I've just been walking around with the D3 plus Nikon 300/f4 AFS and the Nikon 1.4x. I have iso 800 set as my default usually but yesterday I had it set at iso1600 for most of the day. These were taken hand held with no VR and is was able to get 1/2000 at f8 most of the time. I have 21 focus points selected and Continuous Mode/Focus only. I switch between FX and DX mode.
I'm still very impressed with this camera .
