NikonNikon D700 digital SLR review : Until the Nikon D700 came around, many Nikon DSLR users were a bit jealous of Canon users. The EOS 5D was a reasonably compact camera with a full-frame image sensor, something Nikon lacked. Luckily for the Nikonians, Nikon solved this problem with the introduction of the D700. The Nikon D700 features the same sensor as the more expensive D3 which has already proven itself. In combination with the EXPEED processor, the sensor performs well, particularly with high ISO values. Many Nikon photographers had high hopes for this feature.

Nikon D700 reviews - Camera body
When it comes to appearance, the Nikon D700 really is a Nikon, right down to the familiar red stripe. You'd almost consider the body similar to that of the D300, but it isn't. The Nikon D700 DSLR is a tad larger and heavier however; the camera isn't too heavy. It can be easily balanced with various heavy lenses, such as an AF 12-24 mm f/2.8 lens. If you'd like to adjust the height of the D700 camera, you can mount an extra MB-D10 grip underneath the body. You will find that part of the right hand fits slightly better around the camera.

Nikon D700 review - Intuitive logic
If you look closely at a Nikon camera, you will see that no exceptional operational changes have been made to the camera since Nikon introduced the F5 and F100. Naturally much has been added and changed in the digital functionality but the actual photographic functionality remained unchanged. And this is actually not a bad thing. It's great for long time and ongoing users of the Nikon camera. It means you can just start using it right away without having to figure out how everything works. Nikon's perfect intuitive logic remained the same all these years. I still find it the most intuitive logic of all modern cameras. I can even imagine people choosing a Nikon solely because of how it operates. Want to know more about the image quality and setting possibiities? Read our full Nikon D700 review with test photos.
