I done went full-frame

Sold the D7000+15-55 f/2.8 and got the D700. She has arrived. And she's a beast to hold.



Only 233 shutter slaps, now 234...

Full-frame is where the party is.

Congratulations!

I hope to help someone else in the world go full frame soon (that's if my 5D sells on Evilbay).

Actually I've gone in the opposite direction with a 1.3 cropped body (1d Mark II), nice to have both though.

Congrats! I'll be getting one soon too :-)

Also, what app did you use to get the shutter count?

Macs have it built in.

Just use Preview app and Selector Tool

Don't think it works for Canon though since Canon seems to hide that info.

I'm not sure, but you can upload an image to this site..... http://www.camerashuttercount.com/

and you get a result.

(sadly not for my old Canon gear though)

I do adore full frame. When I went from my Canon 20D to my original 5D I was amazed. (Now I have a 5D II, amazing camera).

I don't ever think I could go back to a crop body. This thing is amazing.

Well, if I was shooting birds and wildlife, it would be a different story.

Congratulations! Once you go FF, you never go back. Every since I went FF with my now sold Canon 5D, I will not go back to a crop sensor body.

Nice photos too!

The problem with FF is that you want to get the FX lenses to go with it.

I'm thinking of going that way too

While I can't afford the new d800, the used d700s are really dropping in price. I have 5 Nikkor Ai-s lenses that have been gathering dust and your camera choice (the Nikon d700) is a logical one for me. You have taken some great example shots (good eye!) and I guess that I have to get a bid in on Yahoo's auctions here in Japan.
Have fun!

Your d700

I assume that you bought it used?? How did you find one with so few shutter cycles? I see that you held a pretty good range of contrast in your first shot. Is this due to some Photoshop manipulation or just an indicator of the contrast range that comes naturally with this camera?
Sorry for all the questions but I am thinking of getting one of these cameras and am collecting all the info I can before I buy.

I bought it used. Some guy bought it, found out the D800 was coming out and missed his return window.

The test shot (not longer on Flickr) was to test at small aperture (checking for dirty sensor) and dynamic range. It was straight out of camera.

Thanks for the info! Very helpful. I just need to get started on bidding on one of these. I wish that I could find one with that level of shutter count but they go for a premium here - if they are available.

The D800 wasn't really a true D700 replacement, but its own niche. At least that's my opinion and the reason why I am keeping mine. Although looking on eBay, I'm tempted to sell mine since I have a low shutter count.

Congratulations OP! I am lusting for a D700 but I am having trouble pulling the trigger on a 4 year old body when I know an update is imminent. That and I am also waiting to see what the D300s replacement may be as I may go that route instead. Nonetheless, I don't think you can go wrong with the D700 - from what I have read, it is a fantastic camera, no question about it. Enjoy!

Not to start a canon vs Nikon flame, but seems Nikon has taken the FF lead from canon.....

Wow, I forgot about this thread. I moved up to a D800 this past fall. I LOVE it.

Anyways I've already stuck with Nikon and have tons of their glass, no reason to switch.
