After 2 weeks, when I am still having trouble with comfort and usability, I'm pretty confident I'm using the wrong camera. Nikons just don't work for me, plain and simple. I've got nothing against them and have no problem recommending them to others, but on a personal level, they just don't work.

QFT. I had the lower one set up for live view, the top one for bracketing. And the AE/AF-L was for the first thing on my CSM that I set, which was the commander for the pop up flash. It was amazing.

I tried a Nikon D700. Buttons were confusing for me.

Personal preference I guess.
I still think the d3 is a great design and does a better job of preventing accidental exposure change when switching between 2-3 bodies, especially for indoor sports.

But end of the day I love my canon glass... just wish they would offer a ff high fps camera that can compete with the d3/s iso. Give it 8mp, I don't care. Sadly the 1d iv makes it seem canon likes that 1.3.

Sorry to jump in late. What's newer tech on the D700???

Screen and sensor cleaning comes to mind.

Screen??

I can clean my D3 sensor in <15 seconds. A rocket blower does a better job than the ultrasonic vibs.

I wet clean it once a year. That takes me ~ 2 minutes.

Seroiusly, 8fps helps me with sports and wildlife. Other than that, the D700 is just a smaller and lighter D3. My D300 and D300s have sensor cleaning, but the D300 was released B4 the D3.... So sensor cleaning really isn't newer tech.

Wish I had a D700 though. Love my D3.

I don't need 8fps, although I can get that by buying a $200 grip rather than spending twice as much.

This is why I wish that Canon had implemented the custom button feature earlier. On the 7D, you can change nearly any button on the body, including the jog wheel and quick dial.

Dude, that's what the My Menu feature is for. Going through the CFn menu every time is for the birds.

Another feature I wish Canon had thought of earlier: locking mode dial! Almost every time I pull my 5DII out, the dial is not where I had it last.

And although I do little in the way of sports, wildlife, etc., I hope that the 5D MK III at least has all cross-type sensors. The outer AF points on the 5DII are pretty crappy, and unusable in low light. Focus and recompose with the center AF point gets old after a while.
