Illustration for article titled Differences Between Nikon D3 and D700 (aka Lil D3)

The lucky and meticulous bastards at DP Review have gotten a hands on preview of the D700, and nicely round up the differences between it and the 20 percent beefier D3 besides the ones we already pointed out:


•No rear info panel (now on main LCD)

•95 percent coverage, 0.72x viewfinder (to D3's 100 percent, 0.7x)

•Smaller battery, plus uses D300's MB-D10 battery pack

•Expanded Function button options (macro for any camera menu item)

•Less robust shutter (150,000 cycles, like D300)

•Single CF slot

•Minor menu and control differences

To save $2000, some heft and bulk, they're all little sacrifices I'd gladly take. [DP Review]
