Hello all,

Just wondered where the D700 will be made. Being that it will use the same FX chip as the D3 I'm thinking Japan. Can any one confirm whether this will be the case? Has any one already got their hands on one already? I know they are not due out till the end of the month.

Thanks.

I am a D300 owner and have been happy with the build quality. But, at the same time, I admit to being biased towards gear "Made In Japan". Given the choice I would buy the item made in Japan. Even if Nikon has supposedly implemented good QA practices in Thailand.

Regarding the D700 I would assume they would keep manufacturing the camera in their Sendai plant along side the D3. I mean they are sharing the same processor. Why would they not keep manufacturing it in the Sendai plant. That and one of the posters said they just expanded the plant.

So tempted to pick-up a D700.

On a side note (for the moderator). As I was typing out my reply suddenly the cursor would end up on the subject line. Odd.
