and likes it, a lot...
He'd have to be whacko not to like it.....:smile::smile:
Huh, he didn't mention compatibility with the PC lenses....
" I've now had the chance to shoot with the D300, D700, and D3 on extended trips. Which would I pick? Well, it's looking like the D700, as that's the way my Ready Kit is packed. For the first time in a long time I'm close to where I was when I was shooting film."
the difference isn't statistically significant, but it's interesting that the D700 has less shutter lag than the D3.
Thanks...Rich! Getting a early view of his Review and his meaty observations and operating tips is most helpful.
Finally, for all the D3 owners that insisted that the D700 has slower AF, thank you Thom
"The D700 does a very good job with erratically moving objects, such as flying birds and most sports. Like the D3, I'd place the D700 a bit better than the D2x in this respect. Only when the light gets dim and the subject gets decidedly out of the central area did I find any problems with tracking moving subjects. "
Interesting review, and as others mentioned I appreciate his bit more detailed information about the D700s AF in comparison to the D3 and D300.
One thing I wonder about is that he says he gets around 9EV of dynamic range and can pull/push maybe 1 more. Not that that isn't very good in itself, but I'm seeing more like 10-12EV when I compress the full range, use D-Lighting, or something similar... IIRC - DPR said
Maybe he means about 9EV with out of camera JPGs?
