I own a Nikon D700 and love it. For me personally, the main reason for choosing the D700 over the Canon 5D MKII was it’s low light handling. Before purchasing the D800 I’d need to see what it’s useable ISO range is… and if it’s better than my D700! 36MPX is a massive overkill. I’d be buying this camera for only two reasons, HD video and a better useable ISO range. That’s about it. Otherwise I’ll probably keep my D700! For those of you wanting to step up into the full frame camera world, this is a perfect opportunity to pick up a great deal on a D700.
