My D700 will be delivered in the morning. I can't wait. Of course will have many questions posted here. Just shipped my D70 to Nikon for cleaning and general overhaul. Once it comes back will send to my son up north with various lenses to start him off

Thanks Steve, I have the 700 and have been using it all day today tried 4 different lenses on it tried the monopod and attached the MB D10 pack and tried it. It seems the images I took with the 50mm 1.4 are much more brighter than what I used to take with the D70 but working through them all. Was just notified that my 16 35 lense shipped yesterday can't wait to try and marry them all up. having a ball

The 16-35 works well with the D700. It is almost the length of the 24-70 f2.8. A good balance, IMHO, with the MB-D10.

Thank you. The 16 35mm lense is due here tomorrow or the next day but I have been trying repeatedly all the other lenses and having one heck of time.
