Well guys, thank you for the replies. I just ordered the D700, the grip, and two 16 gig cards I'm so happy I can't wait to get this thing. Chuck Yadmark, the reason I really wanted an FX is not only the image quality, and the viewfinder (both will be kick butt) but my main love is motocross, and the DX focal lenghts (70-200) 105 is just not wide enough, and (24-70) is not long enough. So 70-200 seems right (I can get wide in some of my favorite sections, and the 200 or less will get my the tight shots over the bigger jumps. I want to challenge myself by not getting the bleading edge of hardware, and really try my best with this VERY capable camera.
