Nikon D3 - no flash gun required

In August I blogged about the D3, Nikon's new 'pro' digital SLR.

The first pictures are filtering on to the internet. Cliff Mautner has blogged his initial experiences, and it looks as if one of its real breakthroughs is in handling low-light shots.

For downloadable full-res images, visit the Nikon site.

Now, how long will it be until this technology trickles down to more affordable compact models?

In addition to these fantastic official samples, "leaked" images from all over the world are consistently showing that the D3 produces photos with stunning color and clarity even at high ISOs. I've also come across some tests from a German site showing that D3 photos taken with the new Nikkor 24-70mm lens show less vignetting than the equivalent setup with the Canon EOS 1Ds Mark II. Nikon has indeed done a lot of things right with the D3.
