Just in case you are interested (and I know there will be many that will not), I just started a "Nikon D700" group on Facebook. If you're a Facebook user, check it out and come along for some other discussion.
It won't replace Nikonians by a long LONG shot, but it will integrate your D700 interest with other Facebook activity if you are so inclined. Just search for "Nikon D700." There aren't many groups with that name, and none that I could find that you can "join."
As an afterthought, I should mention that there are some other "groups" for the D700 on facebook, but you can't "join" them. Instead you can just be a "fan." (To me being a fan is not something you are a part of - you are just cheering it on. That's not good enough for me.)

John, All of a sudden I feel like I have wasted all your time. As a result of your post I went and looked again, and you are right - there are more than 5 groups you can join now. And if you look at the "population" of all the groups, the one I started (in English) has only single digits in membership (the others have hundreds and thousands of members). I did not see these when I first started this group (who knows why - it could have been operator error on my part or another Facebook glitch), regardless it appears that unless you guys want to keep this small-scale group, it might be more advisable to join a more well-supported group.
Your call of course... and if these ranks don't grow (I may see if I can change the group name to Nikonians D700 or something) I will probably advise closure.
For the moment however the Nikon D700 group I created shows an image of the D700 (without grip) looking straight at you on a black background.
Ramon contacted me yesterday and discussed the philosophy of Nikonians involvement with Facebook. Based on his input I am going to dissolve the Nikon D700 group that I announced here (I have already dissolved the "Nikonians D700 group" on Facebook). I will give you guys a week or so to make friends or otherwise establish relationships with those who have already joined that Nikon D700 group on Facebook before I make it disappear (assuming I can).
I don't see you in the member list Arthur, so I suspect you got the wrong D700 group. I'm sorry about the confusion. If you read my prior post, you will see that I am going to shutdown the group. So stay where you are or come concentrate on the Nikonians D700 page (or both).
