Nikon D700 review

Camera reminds me old days Nikons - heavy duty, well built camera.
Very decent design with room for a few improvements: better grip shape, mentioned earlier CF door and connection rubber door as well.
The camera has great potential though IMHO it is targeted for amateurs willing to spend some time PP - the out of camera JPEGs suffer from not-so-perfect in-camera processing thus I recommend shooting RAW.

Problems:

1. The biggest one - AWB is far from perfect, more in tungsten low level light.
2. Skin tones - to achieve decent looking skin tones switch to Dx2 Modes or new Portrait profiles, Standard will give odd looking tones.
3. Several times I've accidentally opened AV connections door and a few times CF door.
4. Camera is heavy - when using it with 24-70/2.8 and SB-900 VR would become a must due to hand vibration
