Nikon D700

D700
Review Date: Jul 6, 2010 Recommend? | Price paid: $3,962.00

Pros: correction to previous post
Cons:

Arrrgh, I calculated the wrong price by accident (multiplication instaed of division): of course, it was 1850 Euros / 0,67 which is about 2761 $.

I enter a higher value here to make the average price reflect the correct value.

checked with excel ;-)



 
Nikon D700

D700
Review Date: Jul 6, 2010 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,250.00 | Rating: 10 

Pros: superb build quality and haptics, speed, rich feature set, precise and fast focus, amazing high ISO results, responsivity, robustness
Cons:
I am not anymore interested in other cameras :-)

After 5D and 1D-III I was disappointed of the Canon product policy when they introduced the 5D-II: much too 'heavy' files due to megapixel count, much too slow camera, a very restricted feature set and still a displeasing plastic-feeling. I was as well upset as I had to adjust my lenses over and over again until, and because it turned out that Canon is not able to adjust their lenses to their best possible performance for all camera lines concurrently. I mention all this, because it simply describes the highlights of the D700: All that has gone with the D700: excellent build quality, superb high-iso results, comprehensive feature set, precise and fast focus with all lenses devoid of any adjustments after aquisition.

It makes no sense to explain all the advantages of this camera: buy one, you won't regret. Since I have the D700, there are only two wishes left for a future model: a built-in GPS and an (optional) swivel screen.


PS: The price was 1850 in october 2009 when the Dollar was at about 0,67
