Nikon D700 still is a great camera. Nikon should update this camera to a D750 with 24MP and professional pro body and top AF. A modest increase in resolution to 24MP for Raw, not 36MP. That said, the D700 still provides incredible image quality, descent dynamic range, great color, crisp images at 12 MP, (when using pro lenses like Nikon 24-70mm or 24-120, primes etc.) and excellent build quality and control features. One of Nikon's best and most popular cameras. For taking large volumes of ...

I used this camera for 2 years straight shooting about 3 photo shoots a week, taking about 1000 shots each shoot. This camera never let me down. Well, only once and it was because I added an off brand battery grip and when the cameras' internal battery was out and it went to the one in the grip, the LCD went white and wouldn't come back. The camera was still barely under warranty from Nikon and they repaired it and cleaned the sensor, etc....and I was back in action. Needless to say I bought ...

I bought my D700 back in December of 2010. I used it for 2 full years and I just checked the shutter count and it has taken 150,150 shots! So yes, I've used it heavily, mostly model shoots --some studio and some on location. This camera became a part of me and it was very hard to switch to anything else. I switched to the D4 so you probably know why I finally did switch….anyway, I never thought I'd ever need anything else and could have kept on going with it for a few more years probably. I ...

How can a camera give you Rock and Roll? Well, when i get a great shot, and I'm in the zone while working in Photoshop....I feel like I'm a rockstar! (I've been called that a few times....no lie!) I have the same feeling you'd get (I imagine.) of being one, anyway. I used the D50 then the D300 which I loved. The D300 would do just about everything anyone would need (except video). The D300 was only lacking the ability to shoot in low light with out getting grain when you cracked up the ISO. I ...

A great camera. A stills camera. A photographers camera. No video, who cares.

No Video, thank God. Anyone wanting the best full frame without Video this is it. Should I ever want Video I will buy a Video Camera. This is a serious Photographers Camera. Problems: None. Nor do I expect any.

At last, I bought it 4 weeks ago. Owning (and using) many Nikon DSLRs, D700 is by far the best in low light ( I would say by almost 3 stops). The secondbest is in my opinion D300. Not only noise charachteristics but also the image "depth" of colours are remarkable. In terms of operation it has everything a keen amateur or a professional could demand. Problems: A bit bulky and heavy ... as most real professional cameras. Also a bit slow for today's stanards but not really an issue.

My first Nikon was an F1, purchased at the PX in South Korea for $168. That camera survived being dragged all over the world. The D700 makes far better images than the F100 film camera I was using up until making the switch to digital. I've made prints as large as 24" x 36" which look splendid in color and detail. Problems: Condensation on viewfinder in cold weather (minor but annoying).

Having experienced from Canon 300D then to Nikon D80 and now D700, i'm proud to say that this camera has been the most useful especially dealing with my father's 20 year old 35mm film lenses. Nothing beats the color of Nikon and base on canon user i have talked to after seeing the images from a Nikon camera. Especially with this camera on low-light situation...it's the best. =) Problems: none so far
