#4. "RE: Dusty old D700 - wonder if it will work for sports" In response to In response to 3
Shooting Puffins and Gannets from a bobbing trawler in a heavy swell in the Arctic Ocean with a D700 and long lens 2 years ago demonstrated just how good the D700 is for fast action work. I am doubtful that the D800 would have delivered in that instance, although the D7000 would have but with reduced IQ.
If one can get closer the D700 makes a great action camera.
