D700 is basically where the D3 should have been with which is overpriced. I recall reading about the D700 a couple weeks ago...people on the D300 forums were in a frenzy about it and some disappointed with their D300 purchase.
Truth is that I don't get who would buy the D700 other than pro or near pro photog's. It's going to be a fantastic camera no doubt about that. But what is it going to offer that most people here couldn't do with a D80, D300, or the 3 year old Canon 5D?
$3000 for a camera, then $1600 for a 24-70mm, and either $450 for a Tokina 12-24 or $780 for the Nikkor 12-24mm. So just to get a nice walk around camera and lenses with that combo you're at around $5k. On top of that, if you want a telephoto zoom lens, all of them will be in DX crop mode. Could just be me, but I see little use in that camera except for those who were thinking about a D3 since it's a very close replica of that but for a much cheaper price. I'd be more pissed right now if I owned a D3 than anything.
