I upgraded to a Nikon D700 digital SLR camera in August of 2010. The technological advances over the older Nikon D70 will allow me to create better photos in lighting conditions I would not have even tried before. The larger sensor (12MP over the D70′s 6MP) will give me more creative room in cropping, color, ISO range (usable up to 6400) and more frames per second (up to 9 with the Nikon MB-D10 battery grip attached).
Since 2005, I have accumulated a nice system including a Nikon SB-700 Speedlight and the following Nikon (except where noted) lenses:

I will still be using my Nikon D70 for wildlife and some sports photography. With the DX crop and the Nikon 80-400VR lens, I get a very usable 600mm f/5.6 lens.
