Ken Rockwell posted a full technical review of the D700 long time ago right when the D700 was announced, he concluded that its performance is inferior to the D3 and the autofocus is as slow as the D300, Now since he actually got one, he is starting to change his views?!!!! but what about the thousands of innocent amateurs who believe in his trustworthy opinions......... ----- D700 Update: I have one, and as you can see below, am working with it. The great news is that it borrows mostly from the D3 and not the D300. There are a couple of things the D700 can't do, like the professional 5:4 aspect ratio and mask the finder, but the D700 also does some things my D3 can't do, like set the INFO panel to pop up on the rear 3" LCD instantly whenever I hit the power-switch illuminator. The D700 also adds a great AUTO mode to ADR. If you're wondering if you ought to get a D700, yes!, go get one. If you've got a D3 there's no reason to throw it away, but if you don't have a D3, the D700 is just about as good for just about everything. The D3 is still faster and tougher for full-time pros and newsmen, but for weekend wedding shooters and amateurs, the D700 is it. Serious amateurs can kiss those squinty little finders and plasticy DX lenses of DX cameras goodbye forever! It's been a silly past few years.
