I browsed through the D700 material in Nikon site. Looks to me that the max frame rate is the same with both 12 bit and 14 bit images. Anyone seen a footnote or some small print that says otherwise?
The D700 can record full-resolution JPEG images at an astounding five frames per second (fps), or eight fps with the optional MB-D10 battery pack for up to 100 images, or up to 17 lossless 14-bit Nikon NEF (RAW) files.
It almost sounds like the RAW recording isn't full speed like the D3, but is more like the D300. Makes sense as it would compete too much with the D3 for roughly half the money.
Sorry guys, currently you just can't beat the 'D3'
You get what you pay for!
... Canon 5D ... camera that is about to be replaced and what will that replacement be like?
I see this camera to answer the challenge of the 5D. Problem is the 5D is what, 800 dollars cheaper? Also the 5D is a pretty old camera that is about to be replaced and what will that replacement be like?
