    I think it is a great option for an upgrade from my S5 Pro assuming I could gather up the $ to do it.

    Me too. I'm just waiting to pull the order on one, mine I use now will become my back-up "throw around on the bike" body [​IMG]

    Yeah that is true, I wouldn't mind the 700 either, that's a good point.

    The main reason I haven't made the D800 my D7000's eventual successor is the FPS. It's a fairly small matter really, I'll end up with a virtical grip anyway and I don't mind shooting in DX mode when I need higher FPS since I will probably need the reach in those instances anyway (sports). My D7000 isn't limiting me in any way and I have several thousands of dollars worth of lenses and peripherals I still need/want before looking into a new body so there is no real reason to make a decision yet. I have also been watching for a D700 price drop, but like I said, I'm in no hurry.

    Good man! I am in a similar boat to you, I was majorly keen to go FX and then I sat back and actually thought what is my D90 not giving me that I really need for the time being? It still offers me all I need for the time being.

    I know I will probably end up with a D700 in the next few years though, but I will know when the time is right and I don't think that time is now. I will make sure I have the moeny for the other lenses I need before I drop a pile of cash on FX.

    Lenses such as 35 1.4G's and 24 1.4G's come to mind, I can dream I guess! :lol:

    i havent made up my mind yet but im certainly hoping the D600 is as rumored so far.
    I do NOT need a 36mp D800.
    I was thinking of trying to pick up a D700, but to me, that would be a step BACKwards. If im spending over and above 1,000$, why settle for another 12mp body, not to mention, yes, the D700 has had great ISO quality for the last 2-3 years? but compared to the new bodies, the D700 had its time but as with anything, its old news. Sure, id take one if i could find one for 500$ brand new, but those that are trying to get rid of their D700's now are still trying to get close to what they paid for it AND their used body has upwards of 100,000 actuations [sp.?]. Tell you what would tickle my fancy, if they took the D700 JUST LIKE IT IS and simply upgraded the sensor to match the ISO quality of the D800 and make it 16 or 24 mp. id preorder one of those right now.
    I love my current D90, but i really want to step into a FX body and keep my D90 as a backup when i might need that DX reach.

    The D700 was their entry FX, but by no means a consumer FX. This is supposed to be in the "Consumer FX" category.

    Honestly, your logic is confusing me. You don't NEED 36MP, but in all reality, most people don't need more than 6 or 8. So, that's not saying too much. I had the D90. Then the D300s. Then the D800. The D700 is CERTAINLY not a step BACKWARD from the D90. It's actually about 3 or 4 steps forward, if you think about it. There's nothing about the D700 that is worse than the D90. Saying the D700 has had its run and now should be considered "old news" to someone shooting a D90 is a tad ridiculous. There are only 3 bodies in Nikon's line that have better ISO quality than the D700, and one is questionable: D3s, D4, and D800. The last of those still being questionable. You say you want to upgrade to FX, but never really give a reason as to why. And you still want the reach of the DX (D800 is 15MP in DX mode, by the way). You're shooting all sub-par quality lenses (save the 85/1.8G) for anything above approx 16MP (should you really want the best from your sensor). Honestly, and it may not even be my place to say this, but I think you should re-evaluate your needs.

    P.S: 36MP isn't all about simply filesize. The resolution of a 36MP sensor is incredible.

    I think its because i meant, for me and my wacko logic :D i meant the D700 would be a step backwards compared to the D800 or D600, i certainly agree it would be a nice BIG step forward from my D90.
    and further adding doubt to waiting for the D600 or not.... i just spent the day assisting for a good friend/photographer at one of our beaches here in So. Cal. and he had rented the 70-200mm for his Damn Dirty Canon. So now... im like, crap. which is more important to me? FX body or that Nikon 70-200mm VRII ?
    Im thinkin seriously about driving over to Samys first thing in the morning and picking one of those up. Ive had plans to get one eventually anyways. might as well be now since who knows how long before D600 will be available for purchase and even then, im not 100% sure its the body i want since all we have right now is rumors about what it might or might not have.

    Personally, I'd say 70-200/2.8II>body. I didn't (although my 80-200/2.8D is no slouch), and wish I did. You're going to need the resolving power, and you're going to regret not doing it if you move to FX with only the 70-300. JMO. :thumbsup:
