And NO PC SYNC PORT!?!?!? The Olympus E-30 I almost got over the D700 had one and that was a ~1,000 dollar camera.
Now if it was 1,500 (like the rumors said) sure that's a huge gap....but 900 dollars is a lot closer and in the UK it's only 200 GBP.
Is it really tiny AF coverage?
And when you say worse ISO performance, compared to what?
And, just to illustrate my total n00bness, what the heck is PC Sync port and why is everyone so bloody upset about it not being there??
