Nikon's new D700 will slip in nicely between the D300 and D3 in its camera line up, adopting the same 12.1 megapixel sensor used in the latter. Features include a weather sealed magnesium alloy body, standard ISO range up to 6400, 51 point autofocus and HDMI video out. Of course that is only just scratching the surface in terms of what makes up the camera, so if you want some more detail then Rob Galbraith has a well put together low down on all the bits and pieces. The conclusion seems to be that the D700 offers much of what you get with the D3, but for two grand less. You should see the D700 popping up in the US some time soon for $3,000 (body only).
