In an ocean of stupidity on this forum, this thread floated to the top for me today. All you've done is trade great new technology for great old technology -- that's it. Now you're flipping lenses because you haven't learned to shoot the 700 either. Just stop. Slap on any old 50 and shoot it for two years. Everything will fall into place.

In ocean of stupidity, you swim alone my friend. Thank you for restating the obvious; of course I switched from newer tech to older, that was my whole dilema. And I have so mentioned my lack of experience with the D700 and that I an continuing to put it through its paces, but that I was impressed with the D800. I am "flipping" lenses, because the 70-200 is larger and heavy than I expected and I prefer the sharpness of the 85mm 1.4G. I'm not a fan of Nikon's 50mm with the exception of the 1.2 ais manual focus.
