PS…as to the emails being sent asking if I’m going to be sending my D3s, I’m not sending them, they are already sent! To me, this is a no-brainer! Nikon recommends writing down you settings because they will be reset. Hey, simply Save them to your CF Card so you can easily reload them later SetUp Menu > Save/load settings
