I don't shoot too many moving objects for the most part, people of which are usually posed half the time, other half are candids. And also landscapes which don't move at all
Iannes, do you regret the choice? If you could do it all again would you still go canon or d700?
I don't exactly regret the choice, as the overall Canon system as lower cost of ownership and a better range of EF lenses (if you can afford them), It was definitely cheaper to get into FF by going Canon at the time. I thought I wanted HD movies but in hindsight I have barely used the function, due to the limitations around the camera based in-built sound recording.
Now that I have got some L glass, it's a bit more difficult to change, but I do like the idea of a D3s, which I could have migrated to if I went down the D700 path.
So yes I should have gone with the D700, but I thought it was coming to the end of it's product lifecycle, while the Canon was a only third of it's way through. Unless you have a burning desire to get into full frame, I'd wait and see what the D700x developments are in the near future maybe at Photokina in a months time, the rumor of a 24.5mp sensor in the D700 body with AF improvements and movie mode sounds pretty good.
Here a nice little comparison of the existing offerings.
