Nikon D700 digital SLR announced
- 12.1 megapixel 'FX' format CMOS sensor
- Expeed image processor
- Up to ISO 6400
- Scene recognition system
- 51-point auto-focus system with 15 cross-type sensors
- 5fps continuous burst or 8fps with the multi-battery pack
- 0.12sec start-up time
- 40ms shutter release lag (CIPA standard)
It's a beauty, and will certainly provide competition for the aging Canon EOS 5D.
The camera will be officially available as body only with RRP of $3999. Stock is expected by the end of July, though this will be initially limited.
Please note also, that the FX format sensor means limited functionality with existing DX-type Nikon lenses. The effective resolution of the camera will be dropped to around 5 megapixels due to sensor cropping.
