… Thank you Marcio! Thanks to vintage crusaders like yourself, hopefully one day Nikon will begin to reconsider the values and quality of the D700’s and earlier CCD sensor images, and begin to question what has been sacrificed in a generation of technological “advancements”.

Thanks Iain, lovely shot, really lovely!

I surely agree.

Oh man, I would LOVE if a new CCD FF ever came out, following some design principles from older sensors.

I read all your posts and just don't participate because that feeling we get with older sensors is something one has to develop an acquired taste for it, one that goes much beyond measurable engineering data.

To propose that to an open platform such as forums is, many times, something that will not end up in agreement.

But I fully understand where you're coming from, and agree.

The D700 is one of a kind, it trully is.

My particular copy is beaten to a point most people would just throw it away, but I keep using it and enjoying just like day 1.

Some buttons have already lost functionality so beaten it is.

I rarely buy a camera twice (simply because the money can be spent trying different stuff haha)

But the D700 is 200% worthy it.

Sooner or later I'll get another copy of this classic, timeless legend.

Best regards,
