It's interesting how different cameras suit different people's needs. I have been waiting for a while, holding on to my D70, for a camera EXACTLY like the D700. There are some who want a 24 megapixel FX camera and don't want a 12 mp D700. I'm the opposite. I would have no need for that much resolution or print size. I don't have the computing power or computer memory for files that big. I don't want to lose the ISO performance or frame rate of the D700. The D700 is perfect for me and I am glad that I waited past the D300 release to see an FX camera that fits me perfectly.
On the other hand, I have definitely outgrown my D70. The viewfinder, the speed, the LCD, the image adjustments, the white balance, the auto-focus, the jpeg quality all leave me wanting much more and technically I am beyond that camera now.
