Is it worth buying a D700 at this point?
11 months ago

I am wanting to buy a full frame Nikon, in order to enjoy using my legacy Nikkor lenses at their native focal lenghts. I've decided to skip the D600 due to all the oil splatter issues and the D800 seems overkill to me. That leaves the D700. I don't need video. Used D700s range from $1000 (for a well worn example with a lot of actuations) up to brand new units selling for $3600 or so. This goes against the common wisdom of not buying older tech in today's world, where nothing stays current very long. A low mileage D700 will still cost more than a new D600. Is it worth it?
