    If youre using an EN-EL4a in the grip, you dont need the EN-EL3 in the body, right?

    the grip has a separate battery... the camera will work w/ no battery in the body... so the assumption is, yes.

    wtf was so mean about that? :rofl:

    You asked a question you probably knew the answer to. You're the one that works at a camera store, you shouldn't be asking easy questions like that. :slap:

    I hope they don't announce a D700 replacement to soon, I want my D4 or D3x before then and want a decent price for my D700 body.

    Thinking of hawking it for like $1700ish eh?

    So with the grip for the D700, why doesn't it support just 2 EN-EL3 like the D80/D90 grip? I have a case of those fucking batteries. Fucking assholes

    You can use another EL3 if you want but a single EL4a will give you better life than two EL3 batteries AND it will give you the 8fps.

    6 or 7 FPS that she does now is more than the body can keep focus with.

    Not to mention makes to many extra images.

    Shooting polo I am often using the Ch on the 600mm but fuckkk, focus can't keep up, so I end up manually focus locking at last second and do a little burst of 3 when I forsee the action happening.


    If I have 4 EL3s probably makes sens to stay with that platform no?

    It does 5 out of the box and if youre having trouble keeping it on target, I think its user error :ugh:

    really?

    Try tracking a horse and player moving down a 350 yard field with a 600mm... let me know how that goes.

    Please tell me sir, how should I be doing it to avoid my said user error?

    :rofl:

    seriously?

    I dont have horses, but how about someone else using the same equipment to shoot something a lot faster?

    Maybe top fuel hydroboats?

    Maybe top fuel dragsters?

    Maybe NASCAR?

    Im sorry you cant track some horses running around on a field. Seriously, I am. However, dont blame it on the camera. Thats just lame :ugh2:

    *queue some piano music*

    Dear Adam,

    Please show me all the pictures that came off of the body that day so I can see how every single picture in a fast shutter exposure is accurately focused. Oh wait, they do what I do and hand select the good ones. Well Adam I hope you can still keep argueing with me over the internet, please now take our your D700 and your 600mm and show me how it is done, I want 15 frames in rapid succession all 100% focused and composed off of the body. I really want to bow down at your epic abilities with the camera, so please sir show me. Show me so I can tell my kids about the day, the day that Adam the great taught me how to use my gear properly, so I could put food on the table, let us speak your name in the blessing of every meal for the rest of time. Please Adam help me, I beg of you, sir don't let this moment pass with out giving in to the longing chance to teach someone. Don't let the moment pass to allow us all to :bowdown: and worship the ground you walk on. Some of us are not lucky enough to be blessed with the intelligence and talent that god must have in-stowed on you, but not just through Jesus but through amazing DNA. Please Adam, show to us from your blessed hand.

    God Bless you Sir,
    Heinz
