Re: My "new" D700

Pretty much the same for me.  I looked at the D800E but at the time there was a long wait and costs were over my budget.  I was a D300 user and was very happy with the camera.  Built like a tank!  It served me well traveling all over Asia.  I always looked at the D700 as a D300 with the D3 sensor.  I also wanted to buy some better lenses.  D700 was a better choice for me.  Great AF and better frame rate.  Also pretty much the layout is the same so no learning curve issues with the controls.  I could just move over my battery grip and batteries.  Found one that a semi-pro was selling with low shutter counts and only used for studio work so it was in great shape.  I have been very happy with it.  The D800E is a great camera!  But for me I didn't need the extra megapixels nor the video.  And at the end I got a great camera and some nice f2.8 lenses!
