Yeah, probably the best solution is to rent the D700 and if it works good enough for what I'm trying to accomplish, then I can go with the less expensive option. My challenge would be testing the rental on a real game in the real lighting at the real venue (a pre-season game) and then finding the right used D700 quick enough before the season starts. Finding the right D700 that has an acceptable shutter count and isn't overbid on price and then winning the auction looks like it could take some time.

Yes, getting to the resolution of the issue can be an exercise in frustration.

Check your PM's, I sent one with some other info.
