Nikon D700 to Stay in Current Line-Up

Nikon D700

Those lamenting over the high resolution of the new Nikon D800 may be pleased to know that Nikon will continue to manufacturer the D700 “for the foreseeable future.”

There is no doubt to the popularity and solid performance of the Nikon D700, so this doesn’t necessarily come as a big shocker.  The continued flux of the D700’s availability proves that there’s still a pretty big demand for this camera.

No word on what kind of price decreases we might see though.  It’d be nice to see the D700 work its way into the sub-$2000 price range in the next few months.  (Although that’s mostly wishful thinking – given its current $2700 price tag.)  I think that would make it an easier reach for a lot of folks who have been holding off or saving their pennies to grab one.

    I guess this news is sort of a mixed blessing. Good for those who would prefer the lower pixel density, but not good if the price doesn’t slide down in face of the 800.

    Would be great if they updated it with the video-capable sensor of the D3S while they were at it. They do really need to step the price down though…
