Got my D700 today. I was surprised to see it's made in Japan, and not Thailand. Also, the top LCD is a lot smaller than the D300 and very similar to the D50's; it has no focus information. The D200 had the best top LCD, I think. The viewfinder is very nice, but a tad smaller than my F6. The grip is still not as nice as the F6's -- too bad. The CF card cover is easier to get at than the switch of the D200/300 -- a good thing for now; and it didn't bother me in shooting today. I wish they covered it with the grippy rubber of the rest of the body. The focussing spots cover a significantly smaller area now and there's going to be more focus and reframe going on as compared to the D300. It has auto D-lighting so you don't have to decide between low, normal, high, or off. Oh yeah, image quality on screen is superb and ISO 6400 jpegs on screen seems printable without any extra post- processing. The rest of the stuff (vignette corrector, level indicator, etc.) I've seen on-line before, but again, the made in Japan label was a surprise. (spare me the Japan/Thai/whatever jingoism -- just an observation).
