<snip> I may bring my laptop to the camera store this weekend...just take a quick look at the D700. Shouldn't be too hard to walk out empty handed ;)
That is a dangerous experiment. :-)
You may have a difficult time getting it out of your hands. I have seen the images a friend has captured with a D700 and a D3 (not S) and I would not bet a lot of money on my ability to tell you just which body captured which image in a blind test. The D700 is a very fine camera indeed.
I concur with the others about the nice pix of your family.
P.S. Please post back with your observations after trying the additional software.
