    D700 discontinued?

    I've kind of been out of the loop lately, so go easy on me lol... I went to B&H and a few other online retailers and noticed the D700 is out of stock and they state they dont know when/if they'll restock. Has it been discontinued? If so, whats the "replacement"?

    i haven't heard anything and nothing on NR. i suspect that the shortages are due to the plants limited production capacity since the japan earthquake.

    According to Thom Hogan they stopped making D700s about 4 months ago.

    Well, it's been reported that Nikon's high end cameras and lenses are in short supply b/c they were made mostly in Japan, and their manufacture was impacted by the earthquakes. I've seen this in the mainstream media, as well as various internet sources. You'll also notice that recent sales campaigns have focused on non-Japan manufactured bodies and lenses - such as D7000's and lower, for example.
