No problem, some more details..

D700 is indeed 5fps machine. Larger sensor, larger shutter, same power as D300,.. all make the difference.

Anyhow, some numbers. All done in RAW lossless compression, CH, M mode, 1/500, shooting at my stopwatch till the buffer was full.

12 bit:
starts with 3-48, 3-87, 3-90, 4-09, 4-27, 4-53, 4-70, 4-88, 5-07, 5-24, 5-49, 5-68, 5-87, 6-06, 6-29, 6-48, 6-67, 6-98
Made 18 shots till full buffer and I get 5.2fps

14 bit:
starts with 3-37, 3-56, 3-79, 3-98, 4-17, 4-20, 4-59, 4-78, 4-96, 5-15, 5-39, 5-57, 5-76, 5-95, 6-18, 6-37, 6-56
Made 17 shots till full buffer and I get 5.3fps

So no difference really.
I don't have the grip, so can't check if that makes any difference or not.

Regards,
Mat

EDIT: Had to change the number format, since some emotions appeared in the text.
