Rose-coloured glasses tinge peoples' view of the D700.

>The D800 is not an upgrade to D700

Why do people keep saying this? What special constellation properties did the D700 have that makes the D800 such a paltry follow up?

Generationally the D800's sensor, image resolution, dynamic range and other meat and potatoes stuff has improved but that aside, the D700 was bigger, heavier, had only a 95 per cent view finder, one card slot;  I admit, was a touch faster in terms of FPS but if you're consistently hitting that ceiling, even at the time the answer is rent/buy the sports shooter D3.

O, and the D800 is comparatively less expensive than the D700.

Could you all move half an inch to the left? Okay, pretend you like each other and smile.
