For aviation, my Nikon D700 does the job.
Even a D80 or a D5000 will do the job quite well. I wonder when the D3x and D4 will start being used by people here. People already use D3
and D700, both of them pro-level cameras.
I have a feeling the D3000 will be quite fine, as long as you don't try to do tricky things with it (like really low light photography).
I personally won't be buying one either, for the very same reason as Viv.
I love 35mm cameras.
