Re: i have D200, buy a D700 or wait for D800

I'd been on the fence but bought a D700 three weeks ago. I'd been using a D300, which is much better with low light that the D200.

My results from the D700 are much, much better than those from the D300. So much better, it surprised me. Coming from a D200, you'd find the improvement huge. And whatever you pay for a D700 now will probably be less than what you'll have to pay for a D800.

To me, not having the best-producing tool available for a magical split-second photo occurrence is a big deal. I don't want to look at the image later and say, "Wow, this is a great photo! Wouldn't it be wonderful if I'd taken it with a D700?" There truly is a difference.
