Hmm - are you sure you're not missing something!?
That sounds a real step backwards. The D2X can be set up for various histogram views, and you can discard ones you don't use, maybe that wasn't in the 200/300 but I would assume that the D3, and by extension what would cross over to a D700, has at least the controls of the D2.
I toggle between blown highlight indicator and one BIG histogram all the time - and gave up on the small individual histograms almost straight away. So, John, don't give me reasons why the D700 isn't good enough!!!!
