I would like to ask (here) why my post about the 28-70 vice the 24-70 was moved?
This is the D700 forum yes? I am a D700 owner yes? Am I not allowed to ask a question about a comparison of two lenses on the D700 here?
If the answer is no - where do I get my membership refund?
I know someone out there will say "But you did not specify the comparison of the two ON a D700 in the body of your post!" to which I will say "Why in the heck do you think I posted the question here and not in the lens forum to begin with!"

I'm sorry you feel that way, Mark, but you shouldn't take the fact that your post was moved personally.
This Forum is for questions about the D700 itself. It is normal procedure to move posts about the performance of Nikkor lenses to the Nikkor AF Lenses Forum, to make things easier for everyone. Your moved thread will now be able to attract replies from those who use the lenses on a D3 or a D700, who will in effect be getting the same results
Moving a thread automatically leaves a link in this Forum, so that D700 owners will still be able to find it and reply.

Hi Brian - I don't take it personal, rather as a point of order. I see many topics that are not related to the D700 at all. They may have "D700" in there somewhere but have nothing to do with the camera.
I was asking for a comparative review for a D700 owner by a D700 owner(s) - nothing more. If I can't ask a lens question about my camera here then I guess I can't ask about a camera strap for it or any other item. I won't even get into whether or not my D700 should have a cell phone in it or something else.
I was asking a specific question in a specific forum for my, and perhaps others who may be wondering the same, benefit.
Just venting a little - Thank you.

It's not so much that you "can't" ask here, it's more that questions tend to get more answers when they are in the appropriate Forum, and that is better for everyone. It also helps in searching for particular topics at a later date - I would not look here for information about the 28-70mm and 24-70mm lenses, for example.
Questions about straps usually go in the Bags & Backpacks Forum; straps are rarely camera-specific.

No problem - I hope I've been able to help you understand why things are done this way

"I would not look here for information about the 28-70mm and 24-70mm lenses, for example."
I would if it were going on a D700 - but yes I understand. I may not agree fully, but I understand the logic.
