Got a mint used one on ebay - less than 3000 clicks. Should arrive in 3 or 4 days. I struggled a lot between a D600 or D700 purchase. The D600's 24 Mp sensor was very tempting, but in the end I prefer the body and controls of the D700 and 12 Mp really is enough. Also, I'm not a pro and I don't care about video.

I'm a longtime 35mm film slide shooter (FE and F6, both using AI/AI-S lenses mostly) and this is my first DSLR. The control layout of the D700 is very similar to the F6 so that was a big plus for me. I can see myself switching between the F6 and D700 fairly seamlessly. That and I keep hearing about how great the D700 still is.

If I really want to print big (and how often is that really) I will dive into learning RAW post processing - which I should learn how to do anyway since I'm new to digital and I've never done it!

Can't wait for the D700 to arrive.
