    I am interested in getting a Nikon D700 and I know that to get the maximum capabilities out of the D700 you have to have a good lense. I now have a (cheap) Tamron 18-270 lense. Will this work on the D700? or will the images just be as if I used a lower model of Nikon camera. Thanks

    That lens is for APS-C sized sensors. The D700 is 35mm sized. The D700 can work with that lens in DX format mode but you're limited to about 5megapixel. You won't be happy using it.

    To answer your question:

    Stick with what ever you have until you dont need to ask a forum a basic equipment question before dropping the price of a used car on a new body.

    I'm pretty sure the actual reason forums exist is for asking questions.

    If you can find the 12-24mm at f/2.8 let me know. I paid nearly a grand for an f/4 and almost $1900 for the 14-24mm f/2.8.


    Any chance you can be? It'd be a shame to continually add asshats to the gene pool.

    Absolutely. Ask questions and ignore the negative responses.

    To give my two cents towards the original post, I am under the impression that the lens you have will produce exactly as it always has, even on a D700. It will give the same quality and your pics will be limited to that, regardless of the quality of a D700. If money is not an issue, get the good lenses.:D
