At last night's NASCAR race at Chicagoland Speedway, Nikon had a display booth in association with Central Camera of Chicago.I was given the brief opportunity to hold a D700 with grip and a 70-200 f2.8 mounted to it.The camera feels very much like a D300. Nice simplified controls on the back (as compared to my D200).I've never been a fan of battery grips and this one was no different. With the 70-200 mounted, this was a heavy setup. I'd prefer it without the grip, but that's my preference.Nikon rep said that availability would be limited until the first of the year. I thought that was interesting since it conflicts with what several dealers have told me.Just thought that I'd share first opinions.
