The Nikon D700 is a professional grade full-frame digital single-lens reflex camera introduced by the Nikon Corporation in July 2008 and manufactured in Japan. It uses the same 12.1 megapixel “FX” CMOS image sensor as the Nikon D3, and is Nikon’s second full-frame digital SLR camera. Initial MSRP was $2999.95, but actual prices are much lower. The D700’s full-frame sensor allows the use of non-DX F-mount lenses to their fullest advantage, with no crop factor. When a DX lens is mounted on the D700, either the DX-sized portion, or the (vignetted) FX-sized portion of the camera’s sensor can be used. Nikon D700 bears a physical similarity to the Nikon D300, which uses the same MB-D10 battery pack and EN-EL3e battery. As of 2009, the Nikon D3X, the D3/D3s and D700 are the only Nikon DSLR models that are manufactured in Japan. The D700 has a built in autofocus motor for all Nikon autofocus-lenses, includes CPU and metering for older Nikon F-mount AI/AI-S lenses, and supports PC-E lenses. The Nikon D700 has been tested by many independent reviewers and has generally received high marks. It achieved a top ranking in the DxOmark Sensor ranking and is currently ranked sixth behind the Nikon D3, Nikon D3S, Nikon D3X and two medium format cameras.
