I've just picked up a Nikon D700 camera. I've used Nikon before so I already feel like I've had the camera for a long time, it feels familiar and I feel I know what most of the features do without going near the books (which I will do shortly for a few hours).
But I wanted to ask if there are any D700 users here - and if they had any helpful advice on settings in the camera, what works, what should be avoided, etc. I haven't really taken any proper photos with it yet - though I intend to when I get a chance.
I plan to keep the D700 with my 300mm Nikkor prime lens (they are a obvious match), while the D80 goes in for a check-up, and then keep the D80 going for as long as practical with the "Bigma" lens (avoid the dust problem altogether).
But I was wondering, the Sigma 50-500mm lens, if I were to use that with a D700, will it have to be run with the mode to support the "DX" type lenses? And if so, will the results be worth the bother of that. I've read a lot about the quality still being quite okay, but given it was general photography magazine speak, rather than a.net standards involved - I'm a little suspicious.
