I found this preview on Rob Galbraith (very good preview too):

http://www.robgalbraith.com/bins/multi_page.asp?cid=7-9311-9483

He mentions:

"The D700 does not have the 5:4 capture mode of the D3, only FX Format and DX Format. Set to either mode, the camera will shoot continuously at a maximum of 5 fps, or 8 fps when either the MB-D10 Multi Power Battery Pack (with an EN-EL4 or EN-EL4A inside) or the EH-5A AC Adapter are powering the camera.

The processing circuitry is identical to the D3 and features 14 bit analog-to-digital conversions and a 16 bit processing path. The core image processing technologies contained in the D700 and other newer Nikons go under the umbrella name of EXPEED. When shooting NEFs, it's possible to specify whether you want them to contain 14 bits per colour or 12 bits per colour of information (the latter for smaller file sizes and a few more frames in extended bursts), as well as whether they are uncompressed, compressed (visually lossless, 40-55% compression rates) or losslessly compressed (numerically identical after decompression, 20-40% compression rates). Like the D3, the frame rate of the D700 doesn't slow when the 14 bit option is selected."

So D700 can get to 8fps with the battery grip and the right batteries, NICE!!

Cheers,
Paul
