Re: Thinking to sell my D700 for a D7000, am I nuts ?

I have a D80 and, like you, am contemplating a D700 or D7000. Funny thing, I picked up my film camera, a Nikon FE2, and recently started shooting slides. And I'm using it a lot more than the D80. Image quality is better with the FE2? Hardly! It's the viewfinder and composition. There's no comparison between the viewfinder of the full-frame film camera compared to the D80. And there's also the geometric perspective thing, something which I'm at a loss to explain, but I'm not getting shots with the film camera of buildings that are made to look like parallelograms.

The D7000 is tempting, but logic says to keep saving for a full frame. If you already have one, well.............
