Brian if you are serious about this then could you explain why you bought a d700 and not another d300? Was you expecting more from the d700 and then became disillusioned. The "problem" with buying a d700 is that inevitably you have to also buy FX lenses which means that if you can't differentiate between a d300 and a d700 it becomes an expensive"mistake"
