Great photos everyone! Wish you guys would quit this as it kinda makes me want to ditch my D600 and go back to a D700.

Here is my journey :

2009 sold D700 for D3s
2011 sold D3s for D700
2012 sold D700 for D800
2013 sold D800 for D4
2014 sold D4 for two D700

the lesson learned is that i don't need the 36MP sensor.

I've settled in on the D700 after 5 days with the Df. My second D700. I ditched my D7100 for $ toward the Zeiss zf.2 135/2, and I couldn't be more pleased.

Now, Jason, your pictures are just flat out exquisite examples of an exercise in LIGHT and composition. Just beautiful.

Okay you can take great shots with a 12 Mpix camera, you can take great shots with a 36 Mpix camera. Is there really an advantage / disadvantage to the "fat pixels" found on the lower resolution D700 / D3 cameras as compared to the newer technology 36 Mpix cameras?

You get it mostly right in camera does thehigherMpix camera always win?

I understand cameras are now like computers, but older school still works doesn't it?

Awesome pictures Jason!

What accessories do you D700 owners use/have used with your D700?

I have the DK-19 Rubber Eyecup (I think it was suggested a while ago by someone on this forum, very useful), the AH-4 Hand Grip (much better that a third-party hand grip I bought first, but not perfect), and the MB-D10 Battery Pack (so that I can still use the D700 long after the EN-EL3e is not available anymore )

Those big fat pixels give a character to the picture and IMO render skin tones beautifully. I also think the bokeh is smoother. It's the reason why I really wish there would be a "new" D700. The DF, IQ wise, does a hell of a job as a replacement.

Thank you kindly, Vic. I'm forever thankful for what got me to where I am today, and am pleased to pay
homage. I enjoy seeing old & new members pics come out of the woodwork, posting past captures that
brought them joy. The latest and greatest is one thing (love my D800) but putting on old friend in one's
hand, is sure to illicit a smile. We can ALL use more of that, agreed?!

Will, you're always able to strike a chord that resonates on the forums here, not to mention your ability to take great photos with a beer bottle if that's all you have handy. I'd love to join the fun here but my lowly C-word gear won't let me take a good enough picture.

thanks, buddy...too kind AND modest. I could go over to Canon and start a 1D thread?! Afraid
that's all that's left in the old bag. I had a Cafe Con Leche this evening and thought of you (and Jim)
breaking out a Left Hand Milk Stout after a great day at Bernie's with your new 500. I look forward to
another chance to fire off a few...until then my friend.

This is very timely Will and definitely a public service thread. Those of us shooting with the D700 have survived the disappointment that came with a replacement camera that while amazing, is nothing like the D700, as well as a curious and perhaps retro camera that is a totally different kettle of fish. Now the D810 arrives and while it may be a better match in terms of form, really won't induce me to sell either of the D700 cameras I now own. I bought the second partly out of frustration with the current offerings. I figured for $1,250 that I paid for the second D700 I was getting way more of what I want than I would spending close to three thousand dollars.

Nikon really hit it out of the park with the D700 and D3. Granted, they continue to make excellent cameras. But since I own what has proved to be a great camera for my shooting needs, the D700, I'll just keep shooting. A friend in Germany likely has 300,000 actuations on his D700 by now. He was at 280,000 a couple of months ago. What possibly could someone complain about?

Thanks for giving us the opportunity to give kudos to this great camera...

Shot this morning with a 24 f/2.8 N.C. AI lens attached.


Love the birds in flight by the way. You work magic with that kind of shooting Will.

Thx, Curtis. Your B&W made me think of this one hander from ~5 yrs ago (my 1st D700)

Can you see the whole frame in the viewfinder without moving your eye?

I had the DK-21M in my D40 days but I could not see the top of the picture and the info at the bottom of the viewfinder at the same time. On the other hand, it was very useful, so I kept it on my D40 all the time. I was able to manually focus the Voigtländer 40mm SLII for macro shots without a problem.

Indeed so, Will, thanks for getting this ball rolling I echo Curtis' sentiments precisely. I was never drawn to the 800/800e and certainly not the 600. I had a brief LensRental stint with the Df and while I found its form-factor to my likely, it didn't balance well, certainly not with my Zeiss ZF.2 135/2, so I'm now on my second D700. I can say that my first D700 performed in stellar fashion, the following pics from which I took in my Paris 2010 excursion. I apologize for how it is that these beautiful women seemed to get in the way of my landscape shots

D700 is not bad, but D810 would be much better.
