Yes, mostly "tongue-in-cheek," Brian. Nobody could make a serious claim that a D700 is a more capable camera than a D3. However, the D700 is universally praised in this forum by its owners for taking wonderful photographs, while users in every other forum have various complaints, note problems with exposure, focus, softness in images, etc. If you just look at the evidence on Nikonians forums, it appears the D700 is about as close to a perfect camera as has ever been made. There is never a negative comment about the camera in this forum. Apparently, a D700 cannot take a bad picture!
My serious take-away from this is that I'm pretty sure D700 owners have higher owner-satisfaction than owners of any other camera. Their praise for their cameras is constant; criticisms or comments on shortcomings nonexistent. You can't say that for any other camera, from the D3 on down.
What I find really amazing about the D700 is its level of owner satisfaction.
