D700 for enthusiast ?
Dec 5, 2011

Hi,

I have an opportunity to purchase a D700 + grip with low shutter actuations for under 2300 from a friend. I would sell my D90 and wifes D3000 along with 18-55 kit lens, 16-85 DX and 35/1.8 which would bring back most of the money. But then im stuck lensless so I guess I would pick up a 50mm 1.8 for the mean time and eventually a 70-200. I lose video, but I just got a Canon VIXIA HF M400 for that (sorry Nikon). I would also have to get CF cards because I only have SD cards currently.

Is it an upgrade that makes sense?

12mp = 12mp
11 focus points = 51 focus points!!!!
4.5 fps = 8 fps!!!!
iso 200-6400 = iso 100-25600!!!!
weight doesnt bother me

Would you do it? Not pro, just a pleasure of mine. Family, vacations, etc.
Thanks

Nikon D3000 Nikon D700 Nikon D90 Pentax Optio M40
