Shipped the last of my Canon gear of to its new owner today, and while I was at the post office the camera store called and said I could pick up my new camera.

PS, if you are near Dayton Ohio and want one let me know, I pre-ordered at 2 stores, the other one will be in Tuesday around 3 PM.

Because there were things Nikon has that I prefer, and Canons quality control for thier lenses has nosed dived into the toilet.

Even though I never had a problem with my 1D mark III there were alot of people that did, and I was very disapointed with how Canon handled it.

The D700 is camera I have been waiting 5 years for Canon to make, Nikon got it out first, so I switched.

Congrats and welcome to being a Nikon owner. I use to shoot film with a Canon A-1, many moons ago in the last century!

You're off to a great start. If I could only have three Nikon products, those would be my choices. Enjoy your new gear!

Congrats, you won't be disappointed, I guarantee it. Seems like whatever is newer from Nikon has a brighter/shinier gold. :biggrin:

I hear you. The D70 wooed me over in 2004 with all the reviews and no competition in that price range. I've moved on to D80 and now the D300 and couldn't be happier.

Here are a few shots from my walk I took after the battery charged. Nothing special, Im just trying to get a feel for the camera.
