Never argue with a fool. Onlookers often can't tell the difference.
Growing older is mandatory, growing up is optional.

What about it? I still prefer the size, feel, layout and controls of the old D700 over the D600.

So you've tried a D600?

Nice price on your D700 BTW.

Just found this thread after wondering what the "Pimp" tag was. I have a D50 that I love. I usually take action sports photos. But with my tanks, it makes it even more of a challenge. I'd love to be added to the list.

Just found this. I have been shooting Nikon for 30+ years. Would take to long to post all the equipement that has come and gone. Never really been tempted to the dark side, even in the early digital years.
No my # would not be my age...
