I currently own a D90. We are planning a trip to Yellowstone in June. I visited Yellowstone once before, 15 year ago. This may be my last trip there, so I want to take the best photos I can.

I am considering buying a D700, but I no experience with FX, and I would like to learn what advantages a D700 would have over my D90, to help me decide if it's worth spending the money.

My main objectives on the trip will be landscapes and wildlife.

From reading this forum, I believe I will get better reach with the D90 DX format, which should be good for distant wildlife. I also believe the D700 will be better in low light situations, but I'm not sure how much better.

Can someone help me understand the advantages a D700 would give me on this trip? Thanks in advance!!!
