D700 replacement question matters to me now...
Jan 27, 2013

For all the esoteric discussion about whether there is a real replacement for the D700, the issue has become very concrete for me. My two D700s were stolen and I'm working through replacement options with Insurer's World, a 3rd party my insurance company uses to price and replace products.

Naturally, they suggested a pair of D800s as replacements. My concern is the frame rate. The D700 with grip gave me 8fps; the D800 only delivers 4fps in FX, while the D4 gives 10fps. They're balking at recommending D4s because of the price and because it appears to them to be an upgrade in every possible way. Rather than go with D4s, they're suggesting used D700s. That may be a reasonable solution, but I think the choice to go with a used body should be my call, not theirs.

Anyone have experience with this sort of problem?
