... New home as in "home-forum", not in the realestate sense...

After weeks of agonizing over real and hypothetical choices, and after many months of drooling over this loved-and-appraised-by-all-users body, I took a (deep) plunge and bought a D700 + 24-70 f/2.8 "kit"... Wow. Just holding this camera I feel like a better photographer already...

Many, many thanks to all your good advice (direct and indirect via other threads) that helped me reach my decision, esp. Neil R with his patient detailed technical insights... I'm probably one of the last Mohicans to buy this camera new, but unless the new D800 comes with a "make me a better photographer" menu, my new-body NAS is all set for the foreseeable future...

I am half-way through reading Mastering the 700 (great reading!) which I got together with the The Nikon Creative Lighting System book. It will take a while to really learn how to use and set the camera, but that's half the fun, isn't it?

Cheers,
Zevi
