  • Excerpt: 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?

  • Excerpt: 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.

  • Excerpt: I bought this camera to replace my D300 and I have found it a superb camera to use, it has never let me down, always produces excellent pics and is simply a joy to use, far superior to any Canon I've seen and at better prices.

I ordered the D800, but the D700 will stay on Duty for file size and ISO.

  • Summary: This is a great all around camera that work in many situations. If you are an event, wedding, portrait or family life photographer, this will serve you very well. Do not get too caught up in the MP race unless you plan to print larger than 11x14 or you have to crop a lot because you did not get the composition you wanted. I have used it at high ISO for night life and concert photography. Works great for low light at parties and the files are manageable.

  • Excerpt: I own my D700 for about 3 years. When I was about to buy it I had the choice to buy a 5D MKII. I decided to choose the D700 beacuse I wanted the best quality in low light. After 3 years I can tell this is still one of the best cameras fo low light. I can't say the same about my professional video camera JVC HD Pro 201 which is already surpassed in quality by some entry-level consumer cameras. I read some people arguing about the D700 having an onboard flash.

"professional" camera at a reasonable price given what else is out there

  • Summary: D700 is a serious camera. It is frankly too much camera for most people but if you want less camera, you may need to forego the full frame capability, and also deal with a half or all plastic body camera. I assume you do not want to (and should not) compromise and get less than a full framed sensor. I also assume you do not care about having a camera which does video, and make nice espressos as well. At this price point (low two thousand) D700 is a great camera..

  • Summary: A fine Camera for low light situations where a tripod is not available.
  • Pros: Build quality is excellent, it is compatible with the whole of my Nikon system. It also uses the same sensor as D3 in a better sized body, and is good enough for regular Professional use.
  • Cons: Quite heavy in use, but much lighter than a D3. The dedicated function button is a little close to the depth of field button.

Superb image quality!

  • Summary: I've taken to using this camera more and more over the D300, even though I miss the lesser cameras 1.5 crop. Image quality from the D700 is better in most every way - especially at high ISO. This is saying a lot since the D300 is pretty darned good. Perfectly exposed, low ISO, sharp images from the D300 are indistinguishable from images from the D700. However, the D300 is much more finicky with exposure and white balance and it also seems to have less dynamic range.
  • Pros: Bright LCD, Comfortable Controls, Easy To Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Great Image Quality
  • Cons: Loud

First Nikon for a long-time Canon user

Michael B, PhotoAlley.com

  • Summary: I labored significantly between this and the new Canon 5DMKII ( My current mainstay system/camera has been the Canon EOS-1D MK II ) I was reluctant to purchase the newer 1D MKIII due to some initial question regarding focus performance. In that time Nikon came on strong with the D3 and having been able to use them from time to time I began to have high-ISO envy (it was that my 1D was the envy of D2X users I count as friends) When the D700 came out it was nearly as if...
