I am planning on a visit to London today and was wondering if the D700 or the D3 was the better camera to use as rain is forcast later.

Hi Steve,
Either is going to do the job, both have excellent high ISO ability,
Take the D700 if you are looking for something lighter

Having lived in London for three years, my observation is that both the D3 and D700 are well-made and well-weather sealed. That said, I would treat either with due care and keep them as dry as possible, including drying them off whenever possible. I think the proper term is "weather resistant" vice "weather proof."

A simple thought, and I hope I don't seem too annoying with simple ideas. Have a small umbrella with your kit. I love to have my d700 right in the weather. I love poor weather. I've been to London twice and we get rain/fog here, especially often on the coast. Maybe have insurance.
