.....cause I just pulled the trigger on a D700!

Everyone loving their D700's???

LOL you got me! Just did the same, as I figure D700s and their replacements will be thin on the ground... and every sale of Nikon gear should help Japan I hope. I have a few lenses including the 70-200 VRII on the way

I'm loving the dynamic rangem bokeh and general handling... wish I'd done it sooner. Only thing I'm missing is VR at wide - midrange angles (Pextax in body vr is very handy) so I'm now considering the 24-120 f4 VR. As far as I know there isn't a 24-70 or 28-70 2.8 VR (even 3rd party) which is what I really want...

I agree, where I miss Pentax in body SR most is worth the short telephotos when using a flash (like 100-200mm), and the fact it is available with all the lenses (although that doesn't bug me as much as I can usually shoot at higher ISO). Now I could solve the 100-200mm problem by buying the 70-200mm f/2.8 VR II, but that costs too much for me right now
