Just recently picked up the D700 used and didn't know what I had been missing. I can shoot at FX format or if I want some longer legs I can shoot the DX format. rarely use the flash anymore. Can shoot beautiful ISO 3200 shots with my 80-400mm AF-D VR at high shutter speeds (+1/1000). Don't really need the VR at those shutter speeds. Summed up: Great camera with lots of life left.
This is the greatest DSLR ever made by anybody ever.
First of all, I love this camera. I've used the D800 and D700, and honestly, the D700 has a faster shutter speed and doesn't take up a huge amount of space with a ridiculous 36megapixel sensor. I bought this from Adorama, and I'm very pleased. The condition is nearly perfect and their customer service was excellent. I didn't receive some cables and a camera strap, but after emailing customer service, I received one in a few days! Thank you Adorama! I just recommended more friends to buy the D700 from Adorama.
I've been shooting with a Nikon D700 for several years. Nikon has discontinued this model, so I was very pleased to find a good used one. It's now my primary camera.
I shoot full time for a living and my gear needs to work under all kinds of conditions. Even though does not put a rating on their weather sealing, it seems to work.
Takes clear picture and it's easy to use Great for portraits nature and airshow pictures It's all good one of best camera on the market
This is a great high quality camera with wonderful features. It takes great photos.
This is my 4th D700. I shoot weddings so I need backups. My first D700 was bought in 2009 and is still in service today with over 218,000 actuations. It is tough to beat this camera. The low light performance is amazing and the dependability of the camera has yet to be matched.
I've been using Nikon since around '74 or so and purchased my first digital a year ago. A D2x which is a great camera at ISOs up to around 400. I wanted to take advantage of my FX lenses especially the wide angle ones and have better low light performance. The D 700 delivers. a nice size, enough weight to stabilize long lenses hand held, but not so heavy it causes fatigue carrying it around all day. I read the complaints about the hot shoe, but I learned way back in the '70s not to put a big honking speed light on a hot shoe, use a bracket and there are no problems. Pros: build quality, weather sealing, size and feel. Focus is fast and accurate. works with all my older AF Nikors as well as my AI/AIS manual focus lenses. Cons; None that I've found. In short the D700 delivers what you expect from a Nikon
I own the D600 and love it, but purchaesd the D700 primarily for its potential to shoot 8fps with grip for sports assignments. The D700 immediately feels better in my hand and the additional button for AF-ON was a big bonus. Despite having less megapixels and lower dynamic range than the D600, the D700 is still very capable and I would recommend it to anyone. Not to mention I can shoot at ISO 6400 on the D700 and know I'll have acceptable images.
