I'm interested in the impressions of folks who have or currently do own these two bodies.

After hauling my D700 around for more than 2 years, I'm very much ready to move to something smaller and lighter. The D7000 seems to tick all the checkboxes - excellent DR, large OVF, metal body, and of course a 30% less weight, not to mention that the lenses generally are smaller and lighter too (compare for example my 24-120/4 with the 16-85VR).

So I'm wondering what those of you who currently use (or have previously used) both of these cameras have found. What features do you most miss in the D7000 that you had in the D700? What do you find to be the most compelling features of the D7000 compared to the D700? And if you have switched, is there anything particular that surprised you?

Thanks,
