Hello all. I am a new Nikonian ( physician enthusiast ) and learned photography with a Spotmatic Pentax and a Nikon FM1 film camera. I have used the D90 for 4 years and love the camera. For some reason now, I have convinced myself that I need to upgrade to a full frame camera. I have been reading the pros and cons about the D700 and D800.

I rarely enlarge photos too much and am not overly concerned with post-processing capabilities. I just want the sharpest picture I can take - or one that I would be proud to show to my fellow enthusiasts.

I am concerned about any new product - esp. one with 35MP and potential computer issues. I presently have the large Apple desktop ( don't even know what it's called!)and just use Iphoto.

I would love for someone to look at my Nikonian gallery (kneedoc)and give me some feedback about any of these photos.

So, bottom line - do I really need the D800 or would the D700 - time-tested workhorse improve my photos that much. (present lenses: 18-105mm kit lens, 10-24mm - 3.5, and 50mm 1.4

Thanks
