    in for one sb-900

    keeping my d300 -- i love it :love:

    as much as I'd love a full frame, I don't need it. unless for some reason its selling for less than 2000 then i'd do it, but I'm guessing it won't be.

    Seriously though, the 5D replacement should be out within the next three(ish) months ahead of Photokina. Anyone looking for mid range fool frame should tough it out till then.

    :mamoru:

    If Canon doesn't release a 5D replacement for Photokina, then you're absolutely right. Damn thing will have been in market for 36 months without a refresh. :ugh:

    It's like they put a bow on the full frame market and handed it to Nikon. :rofl:

    $3k? That's retarded.

    The 5D is $2k and the cameras aren't that different.

    <- D80 owner :\

    If you're going to post, at least have your facts right.

    The MSRP of the D700 is $2999, and the MSRP of the 5D is $2499. Comparing MSRP to street price is retarded.

    And as for not that different, lets see....8fps burst on the D700 vs. 3fps on the 5D; max ISO of 25600 on the D700 vs. 3200 on the 5D; 51 AF points on the D700 vs. 9 on the 5D, exposure comp of +/- 5 stops on the D700 vs 2 stops on the 5D; built in flash with wireless commander mode on the D700 vs. no flash on the 5D....etc.

    Shit, you're right, they are practically the same camera. :ugh2:

    Actually, I just wanted someone to outline the differences so I wouldn't have to look them up.

    Comparing a brand new DSLR to a three year old product. Great. The 5D was over 3 grand when it was introduced.
