Hi. Thx for the speedy and sage advice.
The sad truth is that I misspoke when I originally wrote:
"...that I've grown to expect from MY D3 and..."
What I should have written was;
"that I've grown to expect from my D3 r-e-n-t-a-l-s..." My bad.
No, I unfortunately don't have a permanent D3 in my camera bag : (
Given that I've been recently desperate to keep a Full Frame sensor handy at all times....
I bought this new D700 a few days back (well aware that the D800 announcement was just around the corner.)
Eitherway, I really appreciated your "...at least you can correct that impulse before it becomes a regret..."
Conflicted : )
