Hi to all, i'm back on the forum after some while. I back up everything that has been said about the D700. I just still love mine after more than a year.(i feel the same about the 'clak' sound too...) I have the same combination of cameras(D300 & D700).The D300 has just been serviced and i'm enjoying it again. I covered a wedding last Sunday on the beach.I used my 2 sb900.I like the result. So i wish you good work with your 2 cameras.
