I got a d700 for christmas this year. I have a d80 that did very well for me. Lucky me had 2 fx lenses already. So the 18-200 stays on that d80 for reach . and a spare... I had some learning curve but I am loving it so much. I dont need any more pixels either. The low light images on 6400 iso are amazing. Glad i have this camera. I am only pro in the sense that I take money for sessions ect. But still a big hobby and passion. ENJOY your d700....
