I don't have a D700, but one thing I've noticed reading all the forums here is that the D700 has gotten more praise, and fewer complaints (none, really) than any other camera. Read the other forums. People are saying "I've had this problem" or "This doesn't work," or "I'm disappointed in my camera because..." but you see none of that on this forum. Just praise for the camera. So, you're in good company praising the D700.
