The DSC-D700 is a good looking camera, it really looks like a well put together piece of equipment, a great "eye full" for techno-holics like me, sleek curves (the rounded "bottom" at the back) the excellent choice of colours and surfaces and the great SLR-look-alike is a sure win. In your hand it feels comfortable and like a "real camera". It's about the same weight as the Pro 70 so I'm fairly used to having a digital camera such as this in my hand. One thing, the right hand grip has a nicely recessed which "hooks" your fingers very well and makes the camera feel very firm to grip.
All other controls are easily at hand, within a fingers reach of either hand, the focus ring tucked slightly insdie the case design, the settings wheel is used to control most of the major camera functions.
Size comparison with the Canon Powershot Pro 70:
Rear LCD Display
The LCD on the D700 is BIG, it's 2.5 " across, bright and easy to see in any light, by default it's turned off and you have to hit the DISP button to turn it on, it also has it's own brightness, contrast, colour and sharpness settings in the setup menu to allow you to tweak the LCD for best performance.
