I couldn't agree more. My D70 has served me well, and I'll probably continue to use it in situations where weight might be a concern (or perhaps danger to my camera! hehe). But having used the D70 for four years now, I feel like I have a pretty good idea of the places where it falls a bit short in terms of my own photography.

I realize NAS can hit when you least expect it; but really - I can see myself happily using the D700 for as long as it functions. Those 12 megapixels will be more than enough for the way I shoot, and the low light capability will probably exceed what I'll ever need. It's hard to see how I could ever feel constrained by the camera, given the way I like to shoot.

Besides, I can still steer any latent NAS towards lusting after new glass...
