Nikon’s new D700 DSLR

Now that the dust has settled on Nikon’s new D700 DSLR — but hopefully not on that anti-dust 12.1 megapixel full-frame sensor — we thought we’d toss together a few general impressions of the new mid-range pro camera. It’s pretty much a landslide, the D700 is a major winner for Nikon. Sure, $3,000 is pricey, but for a camera that basically crams the full-frame imaging prowess of the D3 into the highly portable body of the D300 — and left out only a few pro features in the process — it’s a relative bargain, and Nikon couldn’t have done much better for itself. You’ll also need to pony up for lenses that were actually built for a full-frame sensor to really get your money’s worth, though our hats off to Nikon for letting you use any old lens you please. The only real complaint we heard is that the shutter feels mushy, which is a relevant criticism and an anomaly for Nikon, but unlikely to be a dealbreaker.
