Thom Hogan has posted a in-depth review of the full frame (FX) Nikon D700. Considered by many as “mini-D3”, the D700 sets a new category of digital SLR cameras with its performance and price points. In the review, Thom sums up the D700 as “… some sort of hybridization of the D300 and D3…”, and “D300 body, D3 image quality”. He noted that there are “a lot of small detail differences” when comparing D300, D700, and D3.

D700 and D3 were known for their high ISO noise performance but a problem Thom noticed is “it will absolutely start producing very visible colored hot pixels on long exposures unless you turn on Long Exp NR“. 

The review has five sections:
