D700 owners: Do you need more resolution?
Aug 2, 2011

The rumor mills seem to be saying that the D700 and D3 replacements will be announced soon, maybe even this month.

Putting aside the current D700 shortages and resulting price hikes, what I’m wondering is if the higher resolution of the replacement (22 or 24MP?) might make it worthwhile to wait for the D800. Having read many glowing owner reviews of the D700, that’s the only possible improvement that might mean anything to me.

So, do any of you D700 owners have a burning need (or desire) for more resolution? I currently shoot a D300S semi-professionally and have gotten very good results with lab-produced prints of up to 20x30, but occasionally find myself wondering how much better they might look with a sensor of 18 or 24 MP or more.

Any insights are welcome – thanks in advance.
