Yes it will. I have the original push pull 80-200mm f2.8 I bought for my F4 way back when.
It's still a very sharp and well built lens. In fact all the older AF Nikon lenses will work very well.

took the photo below just after dark tonight lit only by my 40 watt porch light .

I have the 80-200 f2.8 two ring and it works beautifully. Hand held right it can give some amazingly good images. On the tripod even better, but I rarely use it on the tripod.

Yes you can as long as it is not designated with DX (crop sensor only). One of the reasons why I have been a Nikon owner since the early 1990s is that compatibility is not an issue with lenses I bought back when I had my Nikon N90 film camera. I still use my N90. I have even tried my old AIS prime lens with my D700 and it works perfectly.

It should work well if it is an auto focus lens. A big advantage of the D700 is its ability to use the older FX lenses. I own and have purchased some great Nikon lenses on Ebay from former users of Nikon film cameras. The digital age is here and users are unloading older film camera lens that work amazingly well on the D700 or other FX capable Nikons.

answer 5
Absolutely! I have a good friend who owns the 80-200, two-ring design, and it works amazing on his D700, far better than it did on his D200 or D300. Mostly due to the FX sensor and getting true 200mm, instead of 300mm which is harder to hand hold.

I just watched my Magic Lantern DVD for the Nikon D300/D700 again and it has helped me so much. It takes you step by step through each of the features and most of the menu items, explaining and demonstrating in a straight forward approach. I am a hands on learner, so this is a good way for me (and I can pause and rewind when I need to).

I have a D700 with an SB-800. You can sync the SB-800 at 1/8000 shutter speed. Here are the steps:

In Menu >> Custom Settings Menu >> E - Bracketing/Flash >> Flash Sync Speed:
Set 'Internal flash sync speed' to '1/320s (Auto FP)'

In Menu >> Custom Settings Menu >> E - Bracketing/Flash >> Flash cntrl for built-in flash:
Set to 'Commander Mode' with settings:
Built in flash and Group B - Off ( mode: -- comp: --)
Group A :
Set 'Mode' to 'M' and 'Comp' to 1/1 (for full power flash.) You can also use the other modes: Automatic or iTTL - but, you will have to update the setting on the SB-800.

Click OK - not the 'back / left' button - it doesn't save!

On the SB-800:
Turn it on
Hold down 'MODE' and 'ON/OFF' to reset to default settings
Hold down 'SEL' button
Go to top right square
Set to 'REMOTE'
Hold down 'SEL'

On D700:
Pop-up the internal flash
Make sure the red panel on the SB-800 is within sight of the D700 internal flash
Crank up the aperture and shoot up to 1/8000 shutter speed!

Have fun!

If you shoot with radio controllers like the Radio poppers and pocket wizards can you shoot at higher sync speeds. Check the radio controller's website for which models do allow high speed sync. You do lose some power in your flash and have to move them in closer to the subject. You can make the sun a fill light and your flash the sun with radio controllers, such as the PX line of Radio Poppers.
Cannot afford radio controllers I got a fix for that.
You can turn you camera body upside down to shoot at a higher sync speed. What happens is the shutter will cut off the bottom of the frame due to the sync. Many wedding photographers learned this trick during the film days. Just keep your subject in the bottom half of the frame ( everything being upside down and backwards on a slr body bottom is the cameras top). It's then a simple matter of rotating the frame in post production and no one is the wiser. You might gain a stop over the max sync speed for your model camera.

I just found and ordered one from Amazon. It is new and not a gray market camera...I just returned from PSW and every vendor there said it wasn't the water damage after the quake, but radiation that caused the factory to close. There is a new factory up and running, and the vendors expect the products to be available in the near future.

Thanks for your interest in the D700. We have shipped many thousands of these cameras to our customers. Interest for this camera has been very high. If you have an urgent need I'd strongly suggest ordering one now from an authorized dealer so that you will be on their list as they receive shipments from us.

Proof? No. Resistant, yes.

As stated elsewhere, even if your camera can survive being outside while it is sprinkling or in a nice dust storm,, your lens may not. You will have to verify both pieces are weather resistant.

Hi Sayan,

The D700 is sealed against moisture and dust. YES, It's tough but treat it like it's worth what you paid. it is water and dust resistant. Your lens may or may not be. Dry it or at least wipe it if it get's soaked. It is electronic and water is it's natural enemy. Best way I know to tell you is treat it like a baby and it will last a very long time.

The way I do it on my D3s is to set the camera to M mode and turn the Shutter speed down until you see bulb. You will need to hold the shutter button for the duration of the exposure. I would recommend getting the MC-36 Remote which has a shutter lock function and/or a timer setting.

You need to enter manual mode by holding mode and rotating your rear selector to "M" (you'll see it on the screen) when your in manual exposure mode keep turning your rear selector to the left and you'll get longer and longer exposure times and you'll hit "bulb". hope that helped you.

Question

Is there going to be an D800 in the near future?

I currently own a D300, and want to purchase the D700 as most of my lens are FX. Before I do that I would like to know if in the near future, (within 6 months), will Nikon offer a D800? And if so what would be the major changes?

Tough question.

I went from a D200 to a D700 just 4 months ago, and I never regret it. If I where to bet, don't expect the D800 to come out before August, then allow 8 months before they come into the stores. There are D700 bargains out there, where they are going for just under $2000

A D800 will most likely be more mPix (how many?), but the build will be the same. However, plan on a $3000 price tag at first.

Your lenses dictate everything anyway. I have seen many folks throw a cheap lens on a D700.

No point! Buy the great lenses and a cheap body. I bet you could get a used D700 for a $1000 in a couple on months.

You will need to get a tripod with a tracking head. Since the stars move, you need to move your camera with them or you will get streaks across the sky. Look for something called an astronomic mount. They can get expensive so research is required.

Question

Is there an adapter to use the Nikon DR-6 on the Nikon D-700?

I already have two of the Nikon 90º viewers. I hope I could use one of them, preferably the DR-6 with my D-700.

There is a 90 degree adapter for the D700. The new one is a DR-5 for round eyepiece cameras (D3 series & D700). The DR-6 is for rectangular eyepiece

Your best bet is to get a used DR-3 and a DK-7 adapter (for round eyepiece) it is a better build than the DR-5 or 6. There is also a square adapter for used with the rectangular eyepieces as well.

I don't think you can, Even you can strongly suggest you don't do that on any true View finder camera,
Because the viewfinder won't and can't show what have been crop and you will crop something you want to keep when you take a picture.
To Crop a picture is better to use a software to crop after you take the picture,
so you can chose what you need and what you don't want.
Nikon have provide a Free software call ViewNX/ViewNX2 for all nikon user,
you can crop you image from there, it got a wide range of crop factor you can chose.

What is on the "Software Suite CD-ROM" included with the D700

The Nikon D3, D3x, D3s and D700 (maybe others) include "Software Suite CD-ROM" "in the box". Others, e.g. D7000 include "ViewNX 2 CD-ROM". Knowing what software comes with the camera can be useful when considering the purchase of a new digital camera..

Is it possible that the memory card is in the locked position? Otherwise, maybe the card is corrupted...maybe try another card and see if that one works in the camera. If not, maybe service for the camera.

Question

Is there a secondary internal battery in a D700?

The main battery is fully charged and the camera will not turn on. I do remember in the screen in top of the camera something displayed even when the battery was out. This is not there anymore and my battery is fully charged. Im wondering if there is an internal battery that has gone out. If so can I change it or does this need to be done by nikon service?

There is an internal battery that keeps the date and such but if it will not turn on with a full battery, there is a problem. Here is my experience. If you are NOT using a Nikon battery, the D700 sometimes will not work. Not sure why but I've had batteries in a D300 that worked great, that were off-brand. However, put those in the D700 and you get nothing. Also, they don't work in the body chamber BUT they will work in the MB-D10. Weird. But if you are using an off-brand battery, try a Nikon before sending in for repair.

Question

Updates to "Approved Memory Cards" list?

I've had a D700 for a couple of years now, and need to replace the cards I bought at the same time. I'm very happy with the SanDisk Extreme IV cards listed in the "Approved Memory Cards" section of the D700 manual (page 390). Unfortunately these no longer seem to be on sale (for example at B&H's web site). Is there an updated compatibility list? For example, are the 8GB UDMA SanDisk Extreme cards (SanDisk part number SDCFX-008G-A61) compatible?

The list at <http://support.nikonusa.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/16001/kw/d700> mentioned above is the same as appears on page 390 of the D700 manual. But as I mentioned above, some of these cards are no longer available. The original question asked if this list had been *updated*. Useful answers would be either

"No."
or
"Yes, the updated list is as <location>"

Focus problems with D700...what am I doing wrong?

I have a D700 I use primarily with a 50 mm 1.4 for natural light portraiture. I continue to have problems getting the focus correct especially with multiple faces on a shot. I'm sure it's user error. But used to see multiple focal points when I held down button before firing. Now I can only get one no matter how many times I reset. What am I doing wrong?
