Up until now, all of my digital imaging has been using Point & Shoot cameras (currently a Canon PowerShot SD900).

Just about all of my non-digital imaging has been on slide film, currently using a Nikon N90s and a Nikon F3.

My SLR lenses that I normally use are a Nikor AF 35-70 f2.8 and a Sigma 70-200 f2.8

I've been thinking about getting a DSLR, & was just about ready to get a D300, but now the D700 comes along.

The way that I understand it, if I go the D700 route, I my current lenses would provide an image of comparable size to 35mm film, whereas to get a similar sized image with a D300, I would have to get a wider angle lens, correct?

I don't know what features that I would loose by using my current lenses with a D700, so that is something that I would have to look into.

Thanks for any information.
