I just commenced my third year of D700 ownership. What a camera! I use it all the time for low light photography such as shooting volleyball and basketball games. One lesson I have learned is that there is no need to hold back on high ISO use. For a long time I limited myself to a maximum of ISO 6,400, but I have found out that higher ISOs can produce quite acceptable results. For example, here's a shot taken at 1/500 and f/3.2 at ISO 12,800 during a recent college basketball game in a dimly lit gym. The lens used was an 80 - 200 f/2.8 zoom at 135 mm. Noise Ninja was used to deal with the modest amount of noise. To minimize noise, nailing the exposure is important when shooting at high ISOs.
