Re: I am wishing for FM2 eqivalent FF digital - D700

I've been on a Holy Grail to find an FE2 equivalent. Short story - the D700 is going to have to do for me. Long story - Have a Panasonic GF1 - small, dense, metallic just like the FE2, but believe me, it ain't. Then I entertained the thought of going back to a D70s, good colors, smaller, but the viewfinder just does not cut it. I've had the D700 for about a year, have used it infrequently, but from here on out, I'm going to treat it like a giant FE2. The viewfinder, the subject isolation with 35, 50, 85 mm fast primes - I guess it's the modern reincarnation of the FE2/FM, albeit on steroids. The D800 - well, not anytime soon, on my salary, unless I hit the lottery. The 100% viewfinder is more important to me than the 35 MP.
