I have a D7000 which I won't get rid of at this time anyway. I also a couple of years ago bought a F4. I have fallen in love with FX cameras because of the F4. Now that I want to add a digital FX camera to my collection I can't decide which one. I was sure I wanted a D700 but in doing a minimal amount of research I am not to sure. Here is my thought process, D800-probably the best but a little high for my budget. D700, lots of people brag on this camera and I can buy a good used in the $1500 range. I am not afraid of buying used. I see a D3 for sale for $2200, also used with fewer than 10,000 actuation's. And now the D600 for roughly $2000. D700 has a good rep and is a little cheaper than the rest but "older" technology I assume. D600, right in the middle price wise and brand new, but.....it is still cheaper than a new D700 so does that mean the D700 would be a better camera? Maybe better construction? The D3 is $700 more than the D700, is it worth the difference? I am not interested in video and I understand the differences in DX and FX in relationship to lenses. I am only a hobbyist but enjoy good equipment. I would use the camera for some close up, nature and landscape photography. Maybe someone could point out what I am missing before I make the plunge.
