D700 has arrived

Got a call from the local Biccamera this morning to tell me I could pick up the D700 a day earlier than expected!

Have unpacked and checked it over (Nikon's packaging has become considerably greener over the years) but I have no time to take any test photos other than the obvious shots of views out of windows etc. I will find a suitable brick wall to test it out tomorrow.

Be sure to share some of your brick wall shots, LOL!

That thing looks so good sitting there next to its new box. Makes my mouth water!

The box looks big. Is this the one with the 24-120?

Congrats...

Please don't shoot a brick wall! Shoot some people, pets in various lighting, etc.

The Brick Wall Test -

"I will find a suitable brick wall to test it out tomorrow."

If you were Darth Vader II - you would throw your
new camera at this brick wall to test its durability!!!

Re: It appears to be gray market!......:-> n/t

Hmm -- how did you determine that?

Reason why I ask is because the original poster is in Japan. So likely he got the Japanese version released on the 25th (in Japan, some 1/2 day ahead of the U.S.).

Bic Camera is a Japanese camera retailer:

Grey market is just simply a camera that was not meant to be sold in a particular country, AND wasn't bought by someone on an overseas trip with original receipt in possession.

In a nutshell, I'm not seeing any indications that this was a grey market purchase.
