Thank you so much for your kind words- I am just in the process of building the site so need many more hours to complete it but some of the images posted on there were taken w/ the D700- hands down my favorite Camera ever & I think you will be thrilled to own it. There are a few great threads that also provide some basic suggestions for programming the custom banks that you can use until you figure out what works best for your style.
In addition, I will say that you may want to buy the macro/portrait lens 105mm - I love using that lens w/D700 & some of those images on my site are that combo. It is not terribly expensive but one of my Favs!
Art is the only way to run away without leaving home.
