Colblimp Posted March 29, 2016 Share Posted March 29, 2016 My first ever DSLR was a Nikon D90 which was superb, but I quickly outgrew it. I then upgraded to a D700 and, like other posters have stated in this thread, it was an amazing machine. I used it when I turned pro for 2 years, before I bought a second hand D3 and then, most recently, a D3s. I was devastated when I had to sell my D700, but I simply couldn't afford to hold onto it. Rest assured, I will buy another 700 when I have the means. In terms of new vs second hand - of my 2 bodies, 14-24, 24-70, 70-200, 50 1.4, Tamron macro, SB900 and SB910, everything apart my 14-24 was bought second hand. If you know what to look for, buying second hand is a fantastic way of kitting yourself out. In answer to the OP's question, I'd go for a D700, get rid of your two lenses and buy the 24-70 f2.8, whether that be Nikon (the best) or the Tamron (95% as good, for a whole lot less money). As for MP size - no-one needs more than 12MP, indeed I had an image from my D700 printed on the side of a truck! Hope this helps. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
