    Have you got the D700 already, or are thinking of buying it. Confused as you say you went for the D700 and at the same time thinking of trading in for it?

    I have all three and the D700 is head and shoulders above the other two. I regularly shoot at very high ISOs and I generally don't need to worry about noise. I wish it had 100 per cent viewfinder but other than that it's brilliant.

    There are rumours of an imminent replacement so that should bring a few more onto the used market and drop prices.

    I've recently switched to a D700 & D200 from a Canon 5D & MkIIn.

    I love the Nikon gear, took me a few hours to get used to the D700, i find the ease of use, dynamic range and quality outstanding, really outstanding. I went for an older 18-35 ED lens for ultra wide shots and in truth should have gone for the better 17-35 but just couldn't afford the extra, I hunted around for 3 lens's to replace the equivalent i used on Canon and picked all 3 up for less that 600, one being the 18-35, so in truth it doesn't owe me much, works great shut down.

    The D700 seems to give more consistent focusing and exposure and AWB isn't bad at all; one warning the D700 is fragile in anything like damp weather; mine got damp and it wasn't covered under guarantee! 600+ for repair.

    Up to about 800 ISO the D700 (or D3) do not give better sharpness or resolution than your D3 - so do you shoot a lot at high ISO's?
    Trade offs switching from DX are less reach (which can be a plus or minus), less depth of field for the same viewfinder crop, greater cost, and loss of file size if you use DX lenses.

    Sorry - the comparison should be with the D300, not the D3.

    I have kept my D100 (it's not worth anything to anyone) sold my D200 and bought a D700 several months ago. Because I had a large number of Nikkor lenses from the film camera days, it wasn't a problem for me as everything fitted and took advantage of the full frame sensor. I guess it depaends on what gear you've already got. As far as quality is concerned though - fabulous. All the best ~ Dave

    I have a d700 and the picture quality is excellent. When I purchased the camera I registered for the two year warranty. Not worth a carrot, Ive had it 18 months and a pin failed on the CF card connection. This is a manufacturing fault, but nikon uk wont have it. Sent me a bill for 105 to repair. Its a pity that such an excellent camera is produced by such a penny pinchin company!
