My D1X works perfect for what I shoot also.

I use my D1X every day, and I'm happy with the images and the build quality of the camera. I enjoy using older camera's as they challenge you more as a photographer. You get pictures that are not alway's perfect, but that's OK. In today's world of let's get it perfect, this is quite refreshing in not getting it perfect. I don't shoot for money anymore, if I did, I would upgrade to the Nikon D800. For capturing "memories" the D1X is more than up to the task.
