Why is D700 $500 More than D800?
10 months ago

I just chose and purchased a refurbished copy of the D700 mostly because I didn't want to deal with the large RAW file sizes.  My primary use is in my nightclub where I need to show my sexy dancers, and the ambiance of the club.  I have to use flash, and creative lighting techniques to achieve it, and I've been debating whether the D700 was the best choice.  I have another 25 days to return it, but I would love to hear other takes on it.  I am willing to deal with the huge file sizes if I'm likely to get better results.  After all, the D700 is 4 years older than the D800.

Here are a few shots to demonstrate my challenges.  The last 3 were shot with my partner's point and shoot.
