Try the Nikon store on the internet, Cameta, Calumet. There may be a few more. When I was looking, they were always out of stock. I bought a used D 300s instead.

Go to Nikonpricewatch.com, find the D700 on their listing and then setup an alert for it. If it becomes available it can email you.

The D700 has been out of production for a while. It also has not been available new for some time. (Unlike, say, the D90.) Where would these Nikon refurb D700 that you are looking for going to come from? Are they worth the wait?

If I were you (and I am not), I would get a "like-new" used copy from a source I trust. And if I am really paranoid, I will buy it from a dealer that offers warranty and/or extended warranty.

Good luck.

+1

tm, you may want to check the Buy & Sell board here on FM and find the machine you're looking for from a seller with FM history and multiple "Great" feedback ratings. For example:

http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1206779

I hope I'm not violating any rules by posting that link - I have no relationship with Rob but he has a couple hundred posts over 7 years here, 3 solid feedbacks and a good price on a low mileage D700. A member like that is unlikely to risk his FM reputation with any misinformation.

If I was in the market for a 700 I wouldn't hesitate to do business with him.

Good luck if you EVER find a refurb. D600 refurbs are not that common right now, and the D700 has been out of production for a while now.

Somebody, somewhere, may have one sitting on a shelf, forgotten. Other than that, fuggeddaboutit.

If I had seen that D 700 on the B&S board, I might have gotten it instead of the used D 300s I bought from Keh.

I have a D700 "for sale" on the B&S ... but i think I may have given up on selling it, as I am far from disappointed in it

Adorama seems to have them in stock but at a pretty steep price of $2200:

http://www.adorama.com/INKD700R.html

I remember reading in another thread that Adorama extends the warranty to 6 months.

In recent months, I've also seen them sold for $1800 from Robert's Camera in Indianapolis. They may have high shutter actuation counts so ask first.

That's just $150 less than a refurb D800.

Nikon clearly senses the demand and maintains the high price to its retailers. One might extrapolate that for some users, neither the D600 or the 800 variants are true successors to the D700.

That's because they aren't...

Still waiting... joining those longing for a D400 who will likely wait forever...

You wonder where Nikon goes from here. A D4X with 56MP? A D750 with the D4's sensor? Or surprises everyone with a non-Bayer FF 18-24 MP sensor in a robust body like the D700 had. This would satisfy the unmet need.

I'd be more than content with the sensor found in the D600 but I want it in a more substantial body. Until the replacement that works for me arrives, I'll continue enjoying the D700 which is a great prosumer camera. I'm not at all confident that Nikon will give me what I want and so, like OP, I'm contemplating finding a low mileage D700 just to have a backup. But honestly, I don't shoot enough to justify that... 50,000 in three years hardly makes me a power user...

If anyone is still interested, D700's are available directly from Nikon as of this writing:

I have a Nikon D700 available if you're still in need. I don't have box, but it includes body, cap, battery and charger. Overall condition is good except the grip is starting to come unglued. The shutter is about 145k. The camera work very well. I am asking for $1020 shipped. Let me know if you're interested.
