Nikon D700

D700
Review Date: Dec 24, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $2,399.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Build, High ISO performance, IQ
Cons:
sub-par Auto WB, 95% viewfinder but it's not that big of a deal to me.

I absolutely love this camera and it'll probably be the only camera I would need for a long long time. Next step would be buying better glass.

Happy shooting!


 
Nikon 17-55mm f/2.8G AF-S DX

DX-17-55_L
Review Date: Jun 8, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,199.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Build quality, FAST AF, Sharp @ f2.8, Tack sharp stopped down
Cons:
Price is a little steep but you get what you pay for!

I should have bought this first instead of my 18-200VR! I love the sharpness, contrast and color rendition, my 18-200VR pales in comparison.

Not to sound like a broken record but the build quality is TOP NOTCH. The difference between handling a kit lens and pro lens is something I underestimated. It's a joy to use from the zoom ring (a little stiff at first but loosened up quite nicely) to the focus as well.

People have complained about the size/weight but I like it a lot. It's just marginally heavier than my 18-200VR so I barely feel the weight difference between the two. It balances perfectly fine with my D80 though it might be a little big for D40(x)/D60.


If you're thinking about buying this...JUST BUY IT!
