D7000 to D700 upgrade
Feb 16, 2012

I currently have a D7000 and would like some feedback on possible upgrade to D700.

  • I'm having the back focus issue (very common for D7K I think) under artificial lighting, mostly the warm tungsten light. Basically I have to use LV or manual focusing indoors for best results. I've heard that D300 and various FX pro models including D700 don't have this issue. Can someone who have had both models confirm?

  • D7000's dynamic range is supposedly much better than D700. How much will that bother me?

  • Any other downside besides the pixel count and lack of video for D700 that I need to factor in?

Looks like I can get a lightly used D700 for around $1900. If I can sell my D7K + 18-105mm for $1300, $600 difference doesn't seem too stiff.
