Would you buy a D700 today and at what price?
Mar 14, 2012

I am in the (un)fortunate situation to be in the market for an FX camera. I sold all my DX equipment because I got a good price for it. I have a few nice FX lenses waiting.

My original idea was to buy a new D700 now that the prices have come down. I am not so sure anymore if this is a good idea. While there is a significant price difference to the D800, it may not be enough to justify in older technology. So my dilemma is, should I get a new D700 now (refurbished prices have not come down, used prices from reputable retailers haven't either) or should I put my name on the list for a D800 with the likely consequence that I will not have a camera for quite some time. I could of course buy the D700 now and upgrade in a year or so, but I am afraid I would loose a lot of money since D700 prices will probably come down significantly a year after the D800 introduction.

Anyone out there in the same situation?
