I've been reading the posts by Nikonians who are very satisfied with their D700s. I am fairly new to digital photography having been a film shooter ever since I bought a Nikon F in 1970. My subsequent cameras were a F3HP, N90s, and Fm2n, but I no longer own any film SLRs.

I prefer wide angle prime lenses and own the following:
AF Nikkor 24mm f/2.8D
AF Nikkor 28mm f/2.8D
AF Nikkor 35mm f/2D
AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.4D
AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D

I would like to have an FX Nikon to take full advantage of these nice lenses. I will be retiring next June and I am trying to convince myself that I should get a D700 now, before I develop a "can't spend any money on an expensive camera" attitude!

$2,300 bucks is a lot of money, but I remember spending my entire "life savings" at age 20 on my black Nikon F with f/1.4 50mm lens. Should I take the big jump from a D90 to the D700?
