D3 signficantly faster focusing...

I have had my D700 since just right it camera out...and there is no doubt it is slower.

I use my D700 as much as possible...but if there is any chance I am going to have things in motion, like BIFs, I try to make sure I have the D3 with the long glass. The D3 has been the only camera that I have ever been happy with to land BIFs! I have had a few other lucky shots, but the D3 tracks the birds like no other.

Just about any of the BIFs in that gallery are with the D3.
