"the most compelling, capable and well-rounded professional digital SLR ever made"

The long-awaited review of the Nikon D3 is up on Dpreview.

Key pages are of course the ISO and conclusion:
http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/nikond3/page18.asp
http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/nikond3/page32.asp

But one of the best quotes is buried on page 23...

Resolution aside (we'll look at that later), the D3 offers perhaps the strongest feature set of any SLR on the market. From the superb screen and live view functionality (complete with contrast detect AF and pixel level magnification) to the high level of customization, superb 1005 pixel RGB metering sensor and huge 51 point AF with advanced tracking, to the HDMI video output and eye-watering ISO 100-25,600 sensitivity range it's obvious Nikon has pulled out all the stops to produce a camera that will tempt professional users over from 'the other side'.

There's nothing to say on top of this. Just read it.
