Nikon D700 Review

The Nikon D700 is a professional-grade full-frame digital single-lens reflex camera introduced by the Nikon Corporation in July 2008 and manufactured in Japan. It uses the same 12.1-megapixel “FX” CMOS image sensor as the Nikon D3, and is Nikon’s second full-frame digital SLR camera.

The D700’s full-frame sensor allows the use of non-DX F-mount lenses to their fullest advantage, with no crop factor. When a DX lens is mounted on the D700, either the DX-sized portion, or the (vignetted) FX-sized portion of the camera’s sensor can be used. The D700 has a built in autofocus motor for all Nikon autofocus-lenses, includes CPU and metering for older Nikon F-mount AI/AI-S lenses, and supports PC-E lenses. The D700 bears a physical similarity to the Nikon D300, which uses the same MB-D10 battery pack and EN-EL3e battery. As of 2012, the Nikon D3X, the D3/D3s, D4 and D700 are the only Nikon DSLR models that are manufactured in Japan. It was discontinued on August 24, 2012.
