Thank you all for really helping me decide. Lots of good advice, as usual, from Nikonians. Since the D7000 is only a few months old I think I will stick with it mainly I think the lenses tip the balance. I have of course mainly DX lenses bought in the last 2 years. My older glass I know the limitations but still use them on occasions. Stan - I will contact you nearer the time. We still have Australia to go to this year, for 6 weeks!!
