To my mind the D700 is effectively a D3 with the bulky bottom chopped off. I know there are minor differences like fps and shutter life but the sensor, most of the gubbins inside and the image quality are identical.

However, because it lacks a bulky bottom, it seems doomed to be labelled 'semi-pro' despite offering the same imaging performance.

At £2,000 body-only it's hardly a high-volume camera, more a back up for professionals with D3s, or in my case the main camera because I don't want the bulk and weight of a D3 round my neck for hours at a time.
