Congrats! You lucked out because Nikon discontinued it and it's no longer available on B&H.

In my opinion its a great camera. Im still learning mine too at the same time getting my brain up to speed on what serious digital photography is all about.

I lucked out and got a brand new one about a month ago. I doubt anything about it will make me sorry for the choice.

I think you will enjoy it. Its good and solid and now that Im discovering more about the different controls it seems pretty sensibly laid out.

Have fun with yours.

Good book and a good camera. I have had my D700 for only a short while but I love the camera. I now use my D7000 for birding and the D700 for just about everything else.

Great camera,I also picked up one up at a very reasonable price.It has a proven track record.I have tried the D600 and it just did not cut it for me. There are now many choices ,it does not always have to be a current model.

Enjoy your new camera, it is a great one. For me it was an easy transition I had (and have D300).

I have the D700 and a D300, the D300 is my every day camera and the D700 for low light and photo shoots.
The D700 is a great camera.

I too have a D300s and D700. Use the 700 for low light and wide angle work. The 300s is the everyday camera and can't be beat when I use my Sigma 150-500 for the extra reach. I also like sharing batteries, CF cards and the grip.
