Pros : - EVERYTHING except for the cam jpg engine. Usable iso 4500-6400 (and sometimes 8000!) were a REAL revolution. Cons : - Disappointing cam jpgs : sky banding (a real problem...), clipping (red channel  and some whites). I switched from raw+jpg (first 1-2 years) to raw only... - Bulky and heavy with the 28-300 and the SB-800. Conclusion : Great... what else?

Purchased this as a move to Nikon because I just hated the current Sony SLT stuff. I was looking at a camera dedicated for low light work, and that is full frame. So as a move to Nikon I was looking for Nikon Kit. I had tested a D700 a couple years ago and loved its capabilities, but with the D800 rumours waited to see. Well the D800 for all its 36MP glory just didnt seem to work suit me for low light band photography, and when I got a chance to buy a well priced second hand D700 in excellent ...

I bought this camera to replace my D300 and I have found it a superb camera to use, it has never let me down, always produces excellent pics and is simply a joy to use, far superior to any Canon I've seen and at better prices. I cant fault it and recommend it to anyone wanting a quality camera

I own my D700 for about 3 years. When I was about to buy it I had the choice to buy a 5D MKII. I decided to choose the D700 beacuse I wanted the best quality in low light. After 3 years I can tell this is still one of the best cameras fo low light. I can't say the same about my professional video camera JVC HD Pro 201 which is already surpassed in quality by some entry-level consumer cameras. I read some people arguing about the D700 having an onboard flash. I can tell you that this "tiny" ...

The biggest thing that's impressed me about the camera is it's low light capabilities. Nothing competes at this price, if that's important then this is the right camera for non flashers. It's part of a huge system, like many other cameras, but it's really handy to be able to use old Nikon lenses, inc pre AF, which you can't so easily do on new Canon or Sony (do they have any old lenses). It's easy to get brilliant results straight out of the gold box and I can't see how a person could get a ...

Fantastic image quality shooting in RAW - obvious from the start - but factory default JPGs can look surprisingly rough. Feels very solid and well-made, but it's also pretty hefty to hike with all day (though with a 50/1.4G it's actually lighter than a D300+16-85VR); despite being a fairly large camera the ergonomics are excellent. AF system seems complex but works great and is not as difficult to set up as it appears. I would have preferred if the CF card door had a lock like the D300 - it's ...

I have owned this camera for over 2 years now & previously was a canon user for over 20 years my last camera being the 5d & all "L" glass but switched when the new 5d11 came out with the same fps & focus system, this camera really is a great tool for all aspects of photography ,for landscapes to sport ,which i use with the mb d10 grip to achieve 8fps .if you think you need more mp you can shoot a panarama of 4-5 shots & achieve 50mb! but i think very few people wil . The camera is vey well ...

An excellent pro spec DSLR which gives extraordinary results. Every time I open up a RAW image it amazes me with the IQ. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Wow, wow and wow. Excellent mix of features, image quality, second to none performance and nearly professional construction makes the D700 a camera poised to be a digital photography mith. After being a Canon customer of APS-C digital reflex cameras since 2003, I jumped to the FX wagon and had no regrets at all. The D700 and the Nikkor 24-70 seem designed for me! Kudos, Nikon. However, don't try mediocre lenses on it. Get the most out of D700 by using the best lenses you can afford. Nikkor ...

The D700 was and is a paradigm-shifter. It introduced high-ISO capabilities to keen amateurs. For me, this increased keeper shots fourfold or more. The automated shutter/ISO function just blew me away coming from the D70. This camera made me fall in love with photography again. I don't think I need to upgrade until a clear new paradigm-shifter comes sailing in again... Problems: Sometimes I think that the camera has sharpness issues, but I hear it is that there is so little in-camera sharpening.
