    New D700 owner

    I have a D200 and love it but have been thinking lately I wanted to "Upgrade" to a D300s or maybe a D7000-7100. Went to my local camera store to see what they had. They had a D300, D7000, I checked them out and asked if they had a D700, they had two, one with a grip. The D700 is the camera I really wanted to upgrade too but wasn't finding any deals online in my price range ($400 or less). These were both in my price range and the same price, the gripped one had 98,000 clicks and the other at 50,000 clicks. After handling them I wanted the griped one. I got a little money off the asking price, so less then $400 and it came with two battery's, charger, both boxes and all the manuals. Missing rear LCD cover, bottom port rubber cover and strap. Camera is in great shape and so far everything seems to work properly.

    So in the time I've had to play with it and the few test shots I've taken I'm really liking it. I'm not too worried about the shutter count. This is my first full frame DSLR

    If any up grade i would think of is a d3 because i own the D2x and love the feel, weight and the View finders wide open field of view.

    I JUST got rid of my D700. It was a great camera, 225k shutter clicks with no issue. You have a lot of great shooting ahead of you!
