I'm just welcoming my new D700. Italian importer Nital has launched a promotion: purchasing a D700 there is a flash SB-900 free!
This new camera comes in substitution of my D300, that was wanted by a friend. It was only used for about 5400 shots, than it was like new. It gone away with two DX good lenses, Nikkor 16-85 VR and Tokina 12-24.
Now, this D700 is like new life for my old Nikkor 28-105 and 50 f/1,8
Congratulations on your new toys! Sounds like a great deal; getting the speedlight included in your purchase.
I have both lenses as well, and it is so nice to have them on a full frame sensor so they perform like they did on film bodies. That was one of my reasons for waiting until I could justify the full frame DSLR -- so I could use all of my exising lenses at their default focal lengths.

I agree with you on new life for the 28-105 and 50 1.8, for I had both of them since I purchase my D100 in 2001, but had quit using them. Then on Nikonias someone made a comment about the 28-105 and I mounted it on my D700 and was surprized by the results.
