With new generation of DSLRs now available (D800,D600,D7100) the price of the older generation full frame D700 is now close to the price of a new D7100. Both are wonderful cameras and have their own advantages. I would like to hear from people that have experience with these cameras what they think about these advantages. This maybe of help to people deciding what to get now.

Also, myself, I just got a very good deal on a used D700 and I already have D7100. I am playing with both to see if I want to keep D700 as a second camera for low-light and other situations. This discussion may help me decide when I should use one camera over the other or if D700 should be sold.

In the little experience I had so far with playing with D700 I could say that it feels great in the hand. With low-light photos I have mixed feelings. There are times when I think that D700 is simply amazing. There other times when I feel that D7100 is just as good.

For detailed photography in good light (macro, superzoom, etc.) clearly D7100 has an advantage hands down. I am thinking about portraits and pictures of people gatherings where the light may not necessarily be good possibly be the area where D700 may have an advantage.

Please let me know your thoughts.
