Main gripes with D700
Apr 23, 2010

1) No 100% viewfinder. What a pita. Have had to learn how to frame with D700 to learn what will be cut off, and what wont, in framing for final pic. What a pain. Using the sensor areas and changing to top row has helped a bunch.

2) The pics that come out of camera do NOT look the same as when viewed in camera monitor 3" screen. Those pics look great! Then I get home and download and its a different story with RAW files.

3) Loud darn shutter!!!!! Quiet that puppy up!

4) Manual WB is a little clunky to perform... why not a simple one-step button?!!!

5) Shutter release button isnt quite where it needs to be... should be slightly forard a little IMHO... and I got small hands.

Your griped with it after sustained use? I have other complaints, but wanna hear yours.
