    Nice try, but that's not how it works. We did test shots on the D7000 vs D700 in a bet (that I won) here - ISO6400 comparisons. The D7000 at ISO6400 is nowhere even close to what the D700 churns out at ISO6400. Doesn't matter how high it goes, it's whether you have an image that you can use, period.

    as for high MP count, 16MP vs 12MP - you printing to a large size often? I print pretty often to 70x20 in canvas, sometimes larger, with no compromise in quality.

    Depends on what you shoot, really.

    You got me wrong bro, I stated that as facts and figure on the spec. But I also said it's not necessary good. D7000 can nvr handle high iso as good as D700.

    Megapixel on the other hand, I do find some use of it that has nothing to do with printing, at least not for myself. It's good for selling stock photos.

    yeah, i noticed - on reading it again, it's just facts. My bad, serves me right for rushing out a reply on the way out of the house. Sorry about that

    Frankly, the D7000 sits in a pretty unique spot - on the surface, it looks to be a better camera than the D300s, but again, spec sheet aside, for some reason, the D300s is still a technically superior camera in some ways.

    Well d7k has 2 user banks. D300s and d700 has 8.

    Lighter body is due to less mag alloy shell and smaller viewfinder, smaller mirror box and smaller sensor.

    Ya newer sensor. But d7k jpeg iso performance is still around 1 stop below d700's

    At the bottom line, you get what you pay for.

    Hur hur, I am totally convinced that 12 megapixels are enough already. Even for big banners, 12 megapixels are enough.... trust me...

    Surprisingly the D7k gives more fps (6) than the D700 (5fps).

    nope. Already proven otherwise - ISO6400 on the D7000 is nowhere close to the quality of ISO6400 on the D700. That was a marketing myth that's been debunked. Nonetheless, the D7000 probably tops the DX range where high ISO performance is concerned

    Agree that iso for d7000 lose out to d700 due to sensor size. However I still din find it wise to buy a new d700 now esp the successor is coming out. D7000 does have alot of customizable features that amatuer to semi pro users can utilize in day to day shooting.
    For night shoot and better iso handling , maybe invest in a 2.8 lens to compensate.

    The thing is D700 is good enough for most people and when the successor comes out, it would be so good that some people do not even need it.

    I would say that people who get a FF already have lens that are pretty fast, so as compared to getting a D7000 and a f2.8 zoom (which costs so much and does not let is THAT much light), they might just go for FF, considering that some favour prime lens and prime lens are so much faster and cheaper than zoom lenses. IMO.

    EDIT: and the worst time to get a camera is when it just came out. imo.

    There's always something new coming out. Basically, I just looked at the D700 and did a full on comparison against the D7000 and for all my intents and purposes, the D700 outperformed the D7000.

    Now, if you bring the D800 into the picture, you guys are assuming that the D800 is going to be sold at the same price as the D700, which may or may not be true. All any of us know right here, right now, is what we need for what we shoot.

    yeah, tell me about it. My brand new X100 has no RAW support in LR3/Aperture3/PShop. :P

    Another thing about the sensor size - in the same shooting environment/circumstances, the FF sensor ALWAYS produces better bokeh, all other variables remaining constant.

    All the recent macro shots I posted are from a D7000.

    This topic will never end bro.
    BTW, my friend also had the same dilemma. Waiting for D800 to be out.
    Told him, are you sure u wanna buy D800 when it is out? He say yes.!

    Told him, ok.. if you wanna buy D800, just prepare for abt S$4k++ for body only.
    Than he think twice and go for D700.

    Guess what happen after upgrade from D80.. He love the D700 soooooo much
