Re: should I upgraded to D700?

This is where I was, about a year ago. Had a D90,.....bought a more excellent DX (D5100), and waiting for FX replacement of D700 to upgrade my D90 (I plan to have one DX and one FX bodies). Eventually D800 came (too costly and too much MP)....passed. Another waiting, until D600 came. Not very impressed with overall performance against D700. It was decided than,.....bought a decent used D700 (only 1400 shutter count), and sold my D90.

In what way I feel D700 obviously better than D90 ?

1. High iso performance (maybe 1 until 2 stops better to my eye)

2. Autofocus accuracy and speed for most lenses

> with my copy of Sigma 150mm f2.8 macro (older version), it seems that D700 hunts more for focusing

3. Built quality

What i missed from my older D90 :

1. practically nothing,....except if I want to travel lighter (with no serious photography work in mind),...but this one is well covered with my D5100.

Hope it helps.
