Just had a play around with a D700 in a store in London and overall it handles pretty much like the D300 except for the larger viewfinder. The one thing I didn't like though was the sliding card door which I think cheapens the camera and is a step backwards especially considering that this is supposed to be a pro body. Much prefer the lever system like the D300/D3. Why would Nikon want to cut corners on a premium product like this?
