Just received a used D700 off of Amazon to replace my older, broken D700. Comparing the two, there are 2 differences that are worrying me.

1) Notice the different color red on the left side. New D700 has a darker, glowing red where original is more mate and lighter red.

2) Where serial # is, new D700 has also something written in Japanese.

Did the shake test to see if anything was rambling inside. Only sound is coming from where pop up flash is. Once I open it, rattling sound goes away. Took a few photos ... seem to be fine.

Take a photo and read the exif.  If it says D700 it's a D700.

A Canon G5 and a bit of Nikon gear.
I enjoy my Nikon gear. But as has been pointed out to me "it’s a declining, decaying system based upon ancient technology" Funny that, never noticed.
