Re: How large a print can be made from an uncropped Nikon D700?

Viewing distance is the key.  I've seen large banners hanging from buildings, something like 5 stories high, that were supposedly made from iphone images.  Nobody can get very close to examine those.  I rarely print but I made a 20x30 print from a slightly cropped D750 image and looking at it up close it still has good detail.  Therefore the 12MP image from a D700 could probably do a reasonably good 16x20 that could be examined closely.  People say they have made good 24x36 prints from a D750 so you might be able to print up to 20x30 pretty well.  That's the best I can extrapolate from my experience, you should do some experimenting.
