Re: D700 prices seem very high

Well - it was asked in a thread if you're referring to new or used - and there are no new versions to be had (at least not through a reputable dealer) although I did locate one through a Nikon-authorized dealer in Dallas (too pricey and horrible return policy). Regardless, even the used prices are fairly fetching.

It's pretty simple. It's a tank-built body; familiar button/function layout; high FPS, 1/250 flash sync, clean-high ISO image sensor camera, among other things, that dispenses with huge file sizes and video. I'll never understand the need for a still camera to have video capability - one more thing to go wrong too.

Still kicking myself for realizing too late that the D700 was out of production, but recently got a minty used version and am very satisfied.
