Afternoon all, I am pondering a purchase and could use some other points of view. I want to pick up a full frame digital body as I've been shooting nothing but DX since I got into digital. No complaints on the smaller format but I want to add a full frame body to the camera bag. For now at least I don't need to overspend on this and am looking at the D700. I like what I see in the spec sheets on the 6xx and 8xx bodies but for now don't want to spend well over $1k on this. The D700 is full frame, 12mp and seems to have all the features I want in a camera. Something I require is that it be compatible with older AI lenses as I have several that I use regularly. It has ISO ability up to something like 25600 which is much higher than I will ever need. Is there a reason not to choose this camera? I realize it is not the latest but that has never bothered me. I am using D200 and 300 bodies now and honestly they doing everything I ask of them. If I can get one from KEH that has some life left it seems as though it will do for the next year or two at least. One of the motivations behind this is that I have gone back to film for a lot of work and always keep both kinds of bodies in the bag. It just seems to make sense to have both bodies in the same frame size. Any thoughts are appreciated. Rick H.
