Built-in flash? Nice, even I admit that. But get rid of it. I don't need this feature. And it blocks some of the PC lenses from shifting all the way up (AFAIK). Active D-Lighting? I don't care. I can do that on the computer. JPEG size and quality levels? Really? Can't I do that on the computer? How about just one setting: fine, full resolution. There. Fixed. Contrast? Sharpness? Saturation? Tone curves? Talk to the hand... Video is likely to be included in the D700's successor. You can guess my attitude to that. You know, I'm sure that no matter what the feature, no matter how trivial, someone will jump up and say that they want it. Well, fair enough. YMMV. But for me - and tens of thousands like me - I want a reliable DSLR with no BS. A good DSLR needs only a really good sensor and a few, selected, powerful features which actually make a difference: like an F3 with a few tweaks.
