PhotographyBLOG.com reviewed the Nikon D700 full-frame DSLR and gave it 4.5 stars out of 5. Not a perfect score? But why?
Reviewer Gavin Stoker wants a built-in sensor-shift image stabilization system in there so users are not forced to invest in a VR lens. He also decries the D700â€™s lack of a tilt and swivel LCD screen like that found on the Olympus E-3, Panasonic L10 and Sony A350. Yeah, why not? You know, for making those creative angle shots.
But Gavin says heâ€™s really struggling to find fault in the D700. Itâ€™s really a great camera. â€œIn conclusion,â€ he writes, â€œthe Nikon D700 looks and handles closer to the D300 than D3, in terms of controls and layouts, whilst of course featuring the D3’s full frame capture ability, but in a lighter and smaller design. As such it comes across as a kind of ‘greatest hits’ of Nikon DSLRs.â€
