    Dont give up the M8 for the D700 as long as you do not intent to shoot a lot high ISo or Tele. You wont get that colors, microdetail etc with the D700.
    Cheers, Tom

    Unless you install a brightscreen and slap on a ZF 28/2, 35/2, 50/2 or 85/1.4

    Besides, the poster isn't selling lenses that produced that color, Micro-detail etc.

    There is something to be said about shooting usable ISO 2500 and 5000 images

    But I still wouldn't give up the M8 unless the rangefinder experience isn't your cup of tea.

    Tom, foto:
    The nature of my work is heading into high ISO tele work. See my Nutcracker galleries for an example. Next month I am shooting Don Quixote. I am also being hired for location portrait work and event photography. The M8 doesn't fit in this model and the D700 does. In my heart I would keep the M8 for me (it was a lifelong dream to own a Leica), but I have a need for the Nikon gear that will generate revenue. One day I will own a Leica again.
