Blown away with D700... considering cancelling D800

While waiting for my D800 I decided to purchase a secondhand D700, my first FX format camera. The plan was to sell it as soon as the D800 arrived.

Only problem is, I seem to be falling in love with the D700. I also have a D7000 and for me the D700 just blows it away. The exposure quality, auto focus and viewfinder are simply amazing.

I think the only thing stopping me cancelling my D800 pre-order is the fact I got it at £2099 from Amazon and the price new has now risen to £2599. I'll probably compare them side by side when it arrives then make a call on which one to sell.

I took the D700 to the Zoo the other day with my Sigma 70-200 f2.8 lens. I've been to this Zoo a few times before with various DX cameras, but I have never had so many keepers from a shoot. I took around 475 shots and I would say 420 of those are worth keeping. Even better the battery only lost 1 bar during that 6 hour shoot.

Below are some samples from the photos I shot on the day.
