224-70
Review Date: Aug 13, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,700.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Good built quality and very fast and sharp
Cons:
Big and expensive.

Got this lens about the same time with D700 and what's a combo. Haven't test this lens on the job yet but only with the D300 and it worked really wonderful, fast & accurate.

 
Nikon D700

D700
Review Date: Aug 13, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $3,000.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Good AF in low light at 12800 & 1/30. Excellent combo with 24-70mm f2.8. Image quality is really high. AF is better than D300 in low light.
Cons:
24-70mm combo is very expensive but quality is what you pay for.

My first one arrived from the mail was DOA (dead on arrival). I went ahead and bought from my local dealer who just got a new shipment. For 24 hours, I played around with it and very happy with my 24-70mm combo and 50/1.4 lenses. The IQ is very good at 3200 and even 6400 with proper exp. Focusing is the best comparing to D300 and D200. All and all it is easier to pick up and go since it's pretty much the same functionality as D300 & 200s. Highly recommended.
