While waiting for my D700 (feels like it takes forever) - i was fooling around with my new 16-35mm on my D80, since it was evening I used the built in flash. To my supprise the lens is so long that it actualy throws a shadow w/o the hood - thats at all ranges from 16-35mm.
Eh doh... will that happen with the D700 too or is the built in flash tall enough to get clear?

Since the D700 captures more of what the lens sees than does a DX sensor, I suspect you'll see more shadow. The shadow is common with wide, long (or fat) lenses.

The 16-35mm is too new to be mentioned in the D700 manual, but it does say that the older 17-35mm Nikkor cannot be used wider than 28mm without casting a shadow, even if the hood is removed.
The best solution to this problem, with any camera and lens, is to use a Speedlight.
