Is see it differently. A nice DX lens will still work in 5MP on a D700/D3. Which is fine by me as I don't need the extra MP to clog up my computer.

Sometimes I wish the higher MP bodies had a "small RAW" option...

Yeah, that's me too panos. If I bought a D700, it would actually to for the ISO performance in 5MP mode. Perfect.

I really really want to get the D700, but the lack of a lightweight zoom is putting 2nd thoughts in my head.


The Tamron 28-75 is a sharp and cheap (around 300 Euro) Zoom that almost reaches the optical quality of the NIkon 24-70 at half the weight and a fifth of the price. The AF should be quick on the new Nikons.

Drawbacks:
- not as robust
- no AF-S
- Sample variation may result in misaligned sample, can send in to Tamron or snd back and buy another one

Don't know if they'll get new life or not but I do know that 2nd hand 17-35/2.8 and 35-70/2.8 have gone up in price and have kind of disappeared from the used market lately...

True... I'm looking for a used 17-35mm in Japan and it's being a pretty hard work... I found 28-70 AF-S pretty good but pretty pricey... maybe I'm looking in the wrong place
