Nikon D800 Vs. Nikon D700 Specs Comparison

Now that the Nikon D800 is released, I am sure many photographers will be interested in seeing feature differences between the now obsolete Nikon D700 and the new D800. In this Nikon D800 vs Nikon D700 comparison, I will write about the specifications of both cameras and talk about their differences. Please keep in mind that the information below is purely based on specifications. A detailed comparison with image samples and ISO comparisons will be provided once I get a hold of the Nikon D800 in March.

Nikon D800 Vs. Nikon D800E

It has been over 3 years since Nikon released its D700, a nice full frame camera that we use almost every day in the DR office. There have been dozens of rumours about a slightly improved 700S but we have pointed out that Nikon will skip 700S and release D800 with the D3S capability, better movie mode and increased sensor resolution. While we weren’t sure why a Nikon D4 won’t come out with these specs first, we were convinced in mid-2010 that a 16MP D800 was imminent. However Nikon decided to release D7000 instead, and we guess the D800 went back to the drawing board because it was not considered competitive enough to take on the 5D Mark II market.
