Thought I would test the D700 out with something a little different, it performed quite well and the results looked pretty good to me. It was not a true low light test since I shot these at ISO-200 but these were the first images I shot with the D700.

First is full frame uncropped at 1000px and the second is a 100% crop of where the lightning hit the ground. No sharpening was done other than the NEF settings as shot.

Exposure - 6.2s
Aperture - f/8.0
ISO-200
Focal Length - 27mm
Lens - 24-70mm f/2.8
Whitebalance - auto (moved to cloudy post procs)
Picture Control - vivid

The 100% crop did loose a little bit in the jpg to post it under the 150k here but it is pretty close to the original.
