my first foray into FX and in 2017 as well. my previous cameras being a D90 and D300S.  The D700 is perfect for my needs especially coming from a D300S.  I love the same rugged build and weather proofing. The thing that impresses me the most over my previous camera, is the low light performance of the D700.  Even today, this camera is still very relevant to my needs.

As of 2017, everything that needed/could be said about this camera has been said. So, I will just highlight what I consider its most salient pros and cons *** Pros *** Very high quality construction and very reliable Excellent image quality Very good autofocus *** cons *** Potential image banding at high iso (dont know how widespread is this issue) Very loud shutter noise Base iso 200 Limited dynamic range (compared to newer Nikon cameras) Suggested price as of July 2017: $500 for one with a ...

Just of say that as of today (mid May 2017) I've had mine about 6 weeks and I love it to bits. The colours just jump out of the images and my old fast(ish) prime lenses work as they were designed to. I have nothing to complain of. There are a ton of reviews so I've nothing useful to add really. If you want a really interesting review from a top flight guy, try typing Ming Thein into Google to find his site.  He writes from the point of view of a long term user finally retiring his D700's and ...

In 2016, yes in 2016, I have purchased my first 35mm sensor D-SLR. What did I get? Well, I got a Nikon D700, yes a D700. You may be wondering why I would purchase an 8 years old camera in 2016, well I’ll tell you why. After months of research, and considerations of the Nikon D610, D750, and the D810, I found something “wrong” with each of these models. I learn on a Nikon FG-20 35mm film, 100% manual camera. I was a teen and was how bonded with my father, as he taught me about photography. I ...

Nikon D700 still is a great camera. Nikon should update this camera to a D750 with 24MP and professional pro body and top AF. A modest increase in resolution to 24MP for Raw, not 36MP. That said, the D700 still provides incredible image quality, descent dynamic range, great color, crisp images at 12 MP, (when using pro lenses like Nikon 24-70mm or 24-120, primes etc.) and excellent build quality and control features. One of Nikon's best and most popular cameras. For taking large volumes of ...

I used this camera for 2 years straight shooting about 3 photo shoots a week, taking about 1000 shots each shoot. This camera never let me down. Well, only once and it was because I added an off brand battery grip and when the cameras' internal battery was out and it went to the one in the grip, the LCD went white and wouldn't come back. The camera was still barely under warranty from Nikon and they repaired it and cleaned the sensor, etc....and I was back in action. Needless to say I bought ...

I bought my D700 back in December of 2010. I used it for 2 full years and I just checked the shutter count and it has taken 150,150 shots! So yes, I've used it heavily, mostly model shoots --some studio and some on location. This camera became a part of me and it was very hard to switch to anything else. I switched to the D4 so you probably know why I finally did switch….anyway, I never thought I'd ever need anything else and could have kept on going with it for a few more years probably. I ...

Pros : - EVERYTHING except for the cam jpg engine. Usable iso 4500-6400 (and sometimes 8000!) were a REAL revolution. Cons : - Disappointing cam jpgs : sky banding (a real problem...), clipping (red channel  and some whites). I switched from raw+jpg (first 1-2 years) to raw only... - Bulky and heavy with the 28-300 and the SB-800. Conclusion : Great... what else?

I bought this camera as a backup to my D3s, and I have not been disappointed. I like the fact is has a small, pop-up flash built in, and with the extra grip, makes a great second sports camera. I bought mine used in Sept. of 2012, with only 1,200 shutter actuations. I don't need the huge files of a D800, so the D700 is the perfect second camera for me.

Purchased this as a move to Nikon because I just hated the current Sony SLT stuff. I was looking at a camera dedicated for low light work, and that is full frame. So as a move to Nikon I was looking for Nikon Kit. I had tested a D700 a couple years ago and loved its capabilities, but with the D800 rumours waited to see. Well the D800 for all its 36MP glory just didnt seem to work suit me for low light band photography, and when I got a chance to buy a well priced second hand D700 in excellent ...
