Hi,

if you own a collection of old (non-DX) glass, you have 2 options:

1) replace old glass with equivalent DX
2) buy FX body

Option 1 will cost you more then the equivalent of a D3 in new glass
Option 2 in form of a D3 is not a low cost option either. Plus the D3 might be overkill for many people.

In my specific situation, a D700 for 2,599€ is exactly what I missed from Nikon the past years. Somebody else might come to another valid conclusion.

Bye
Romain
