There’s reports from numerous web sources that the Nikon D700 is discontinued. Many stores reportedly are either unable to re-order the D700, or have marked down the price, or both.
Officially, Nikon seems to be keeping quiet on the issue, but it’s been widely expected that a Nikon D700 replacement would be announced very soon. There were even rumors that one would be announced before the end of April, and while that date has passed, an announcement could still be forthcoming any day now.
D700x, D700s, D800, D900… who knows what Nikon will call it. I’m leaning towards the D900. Thom Hogan seems to think it’s the likeliest name, and he’s usually more tuned in than most people when it comes to all things Nikon.
So, now is a great time to pick up a Nikon D700 while the price is low. The D700 is a SWEET camera. I love mine. For top image quality, and top of the line high ISO, the D700 is the camera to have.
Or, wait and see what the D900 brings. You really can’t go wrong either way.
