Hi all -

I currently shoot a D7100, which I really like. I love primes - my favorites in my bag are the 105 f/2 DC, 105 2.5, 85 1.8 and 24 2.8.
I shoot mostly portraits, family, kids.

I've been looking for a while at adding a second fx body, but I'm not in a place to make the full switch and buy a new fx body (i.e. D800).

I have a friend/colleague who shoots professionally. She has 2 D700's, and is selling one to upgrade to a D3s. It has about 60k shots on it, but I know she takes excellent care of her equipment, and I know I can trust her. It comes with a grip and 2 batteries, and she'll sell it to me for $1500.

I've done a lot of research (including all the knowledge here!) on the merits of the 700. This seems like a good price.

My immune system is trying desperately to fight off this new NAS virus that has found me...

I guess I'd love to hear from any of you guys who have/do shoot with both the 7100 and the 700, and to get your opinions on the benefits of having both (my brain is struggling to come up with some negatives, my wallet has one though...).

Thanks for your thoughts.
