For the last couple of years I have happily used the D300, really enjoying the camera, as well as its better AF coverage and smaller, lighter, overall package compared to the D3 and D700. Ergo, I hadn't seriously considered one of the FX bodies until this morning when I looked at the shots on Nikon's site of Baryshnikov done with the D3s. I crumbled!

As a fellow who started shooting when ISO 400 film meant grain (noise) city, and who loves available light work, I am stunned by the achievement of Nikon's engineers.

Here's my question. Assume that Nikon will come out with a D700s, and that the feature set reduction compared with the D3s will be similar to the D3-D700 step down. What is there to regret in getting the expected D700s? If any of you have shot both the D3 and D700, what is missing (aside from the feature list that I can get from the Nikon site)? Is the AF not as good? Is there some performance down side that you can't get from looking at the published feature sets? Thanks!

Mike
