  • Better Auto ISO
  • Better low-light AF

a pro you forgot:

  • dual memory cards

and some cons:

  • less weather sealing
  • not built as well
  • slower frame rate
  • fewer AF points
  • battery grip doesn't take professional (D4) batteries
  • SD cards
  • amateur control scheme

i'm not saying that it's not a good camera. just that there might indeed be reasons to choose a D700 over D610.

So you think the D800 has less weather sealing than a D700?  That seems very unlikely to me.  Do you have proof for this?
