The only thing I give up is frame rate - it's only 3fps but I've been walking away with 300 - 400+ keepers after the games (waterpolo and soccer). But sports is more about timing than sequences, I've always felt.

Amen. Unless I am on a special assignment for a parent, I am a timer with my D3s. I shoot 13 sports for the local HS and the school district, for free. Sometimes, I get lucky.   I don't shoot with the D700 anymore but the D3s now.
