    That's a shame, I always rather liked his style of photography.

    Me too. My D70 cost about that and I've got three years out of it now, D300 for another 3, then maybe one of these D700s when they are cheap enough.

    I really don't think the D300 will drop to anywhere near £600 any time soon.

    +1, I love his photography and he's a lovely bloke.

    I hope he comes back.

    F1 testing last Wednesday. Yes there's not much motion blur, but it was my first attempt.

    As in, requested his account be deleted?

    Why do people do this? What's wrong with, you know, just not clicking on your forum bookmark any more? Why delete e v e r y t h i n g? :(

    The way I look at it is the only thing it has over my D70 is an extra zero. Zero = nothing so therefore it has nothing over my D70.

    The D700 looks amazing but at teh £1500-2000 price bracket the D3 starts to come into play as well. I think if your prepared to buy the D700 you may as well save a bit more and get the D3.

    Yeah it's really affected D3 prices, you can get one for £2,500 now, but the D300 is remaining frustratingly static :(
  • Deleted user 8 July 2008 16:51:05
    A D3 is down to £2,500???

    I thought the D700 was going to go for £2000 - £2300 over here? Surely a D3 is more than £300 better?

    Again, this is exactly why they should have realeased the D3X before the D700. They've just fucked their product structure.

    Yep, check it out: Cheapest UK Stock

    The two really aren't that dissimilar from what I can tell, with the D700 actually improved over the D3 in places so it's not that surprising I reckon.

    I'm a Canon boy and I'd sell a kidney to get a D3! The 5D replacement better be something good.

    Why do the Canon fanboys always come into the Nikon threads? I never see the Nikon lot in the Canon thread?

    Oh wait, they have very, very small penises.

    That’s why.

    Well in the self-cleaning sensor for one. Also has more button customisation or something.

    See Rutty's post!

    Money aside, if I had to choose I'd rather have a D700 over a D3 purely because of size issues. A D3 is just too big and heavy for me to lug around with me - I would end up leaving it at home. I had a go at Pete's 5D with a grip and could barely lift the thing.
