Of course they'll probably sell them all by the time you read this, but I
thought you'd like to know.

I've had mine since Friday. So far, I think it's clever the way Nikon
implemented so many D300 controls on the D700 (e.g. zoom during
picture review, mode dial buttons, bracketing) so we'd instantly know
whether we're using a D3 or D700. I'd hate it if both my FX cameras
operated exactly the same.

Congrats. It does seem like a sweet camera from what I've read and the
image quality is great. Since I'm dragging my feet on the purchase of one,
wouldn't you know it, everyone has them in stock. Nikon is getting so much
better on their distribution of dSLR bodies. Now if they can deliver those
two lenses I'm waiting on.

Which lenses are they?

I'm guessing that they overestimated demand.
The shortage of lenses probably indicates that they sold a lot of D3s,
though Nikon have been slow on lens deliveries in the past.
$3k / $4.5k - not really that much difference in price if it's a work
tool - they've already saturated some of the pro market, but $3k is
still a hefty price tag for most amateurs, especially when many wouldn't
be happy to see the expected 24mp FX released soon.

I suspect D700 prices will drop to about $2,500 before the end of the year.
I don't think Nikon overestimated demand; they just underestimated the
crappy US dollar. The D3 did quench the FF lust that every Nikon shooter
had. I'm not sure it had a major impact on D700 sales. I wouldn't think a
24MP FX would make anyone unhappy. The people that need it will buy it and
use it.

One of them is the 400/2.8.

I doubt it. The D3 price has only dropped slightly, only a little more
than the cost of the "free" capture NX.

Perhaps they should have made it in Thailand.

Perception - not reality - matters. When >20mp Fx is commonplace, 12mp
FX will seem like 6mp Dx does now - the few who realise that it doesn't
matter much will be a minority.
