D700 in the grave yard

Eugene Green

I checked out RCC's new D700 for over the weekend, and it is an amazing camera. It's easily the most advanced dSLR we have available to us at school, and my top choice for low-light photography. But all that being said, I still prefer the Canon 5D. It's three years older than the D700 and outclassed in a lot of ways, but it's still my favorite. There's just something intangible about the 5D and the beautiful images it produces. Of course, I now love the D700 almost as much.
