Now the simple question here is, is this a classic and much sort after antique Nikon camera of the future? The above is my D700 circa 23k clicks which is in great condition and which I still love dearly. However, I am looking to ‘chop it in’ very soon for a new D850 to pair up with my D810, a combo which will probably see me good for many, many years to come. I’m no camera geek but I do know the D700 was a special camera of it’s generation, one which Nikon possibly over engineered taking sales away from their then flagship D3. For me it was a stella upgrade from the DX D200 and raised the quality of my photos no end, particularly those of my favourite subject of golf. 10 to 12MP wasn’t huge but the quality of the full frame D700 was massive and even the cropping options were much, much better. That helped a lot given that I’d only got the reach of the 70-200mm f/2.8G VRII at the time. Since I got the D810 that’s been my primary camera but the D700 has always been there, usually with a speedlight attached for golf group shots (fill flash gets under all those golf caps so you can seen players faces) and close up post round candid stuff in the clubhouse. It’s always performed perfectly without a hitch and produced consistent output to sit nicely alongside the 36MP images from the D810. Now I’m not going to get much for the camera trade-in wise (£400 ish), even with the PDK 1 grip package (grip, battery, charger etc. which was a great buy at the time), but it will ease the impact of financing the D850 purchase. I could complete the purchase without the trade-in at a pinch and keep the D700 for posterity and maybe as a future long term investment (?). So, what do people think about how the D700 will be regarded in years to come, will it just be another fine well respected digital camera from the past or will it be held up as something a bit more special and of major significance in the development of digital photography? I’m really torn about letting mine go or just hanging onto it, knowing that it’s not going to see much, if any, action going forward, but just giving me a nice warm (yes, nostalgic I suppose) feeling about still owning one. Would be really interested to hear the thoughts from the forum on this (NB. This is my first venture into raising a discussion topic so go easy on me guys n gals).
