    I am looking to purchase the D3. Now with the release of the D700, what does the D3 give me that the D700 cannot? Please leave cost out of the equation. Thanks.

    Right now the faster fps and shots per battery charge has the D3 in a slight lead.
     
  2. not much

    add 5:4 ratio to your list, not real useful
    does the D700 have on demand framelines?
    D3 has the rear data display which is more useful than you think till you use it
    D3 has lockable controls
    D700 has flash and AF-helper light
    does the D700 have the dust shaker?
    D3 has a 100% viewfinder
    D3 has a latched card door

    just off the top of my head...

    TWO CF card slots
    300,000 vs 150,000 rated shutter
    Faster max FPS
    Sturdier body (compared to D700 + grip)
