I sold my Nikon D700 some years ago. I sold it because it was a heavy camera to carry around, too heavy as a do-everything camera. It was fine for when I knew I would be photographing someone or something. But for carrying around casually, it was too much.
Also, it was full-frame. That meant that the lens were big and heavy because the circle described by the glass had to cover the large full-frame sensor.
Fast Forward To Today
Today I was going through some old photos to add portraits to my portrait photography site.
I came across a photograph I took when Tamara and I were in the town of Bath in Somerset. I checked the details and I shot if with my D700.
In Roman times Bath was named Aqua Sulis and centered around the bathhouse. The woman I photographed was dressed in Roman costume and was working as a guide, describing daily life in the baths.
Oh what depth of detail. It has stopped me in my quest for the next camera. I have to think again.
