Hey everyone,

I'm pretty much ready to pull the trigger and buy a D700. I'm a "semi-pro" (whatever that means) shooter and have mostly pro glass. I made the concious choice 2 years ago only to purchase full frame lenses so outside of my 12-24 DX, I'm pretty set.

I shoot mostly landscape and corporate work. I have fast glass for the corporate work and will be keeping my D300 because I can't upgrade to the 17-35 yet.

Here's where I need your help. My reasons for getting the D700 are:

1. Low light capabilities for corporate shooting
2. Full frame to try out/take advantage of the PC lenses (next purchase)for landscape shooting. I think the 24mm on the D300 would not be wide enough.

Are these valid enough reasons to buy this camera or should I just keep the D300? Not that my NAS won't prevail, but any thoughts you have would be great.

I'm also wondering if anyone has compared how far you can push a D300 image when printing compared to a D700? I know they're the same size (roughly) but do the higher quality pixels allow you to get better large size images?

Thanks,
