Exactly my situation as well. I have shot Nikon Film SLR's up until I purchased a D300. However, I could never get used to the fact that all my lenses from my film rig never got the look I expected. Fortunately for me, I only had the D300 for a short while before the D700 was announced, so I took it back to Ritz and exchanged it (no money lost) for the D700. Now... I should feel like "home" but with instant gratification and all the other benefits of digital.
