Speaking of ships, Nikon is flooding the market with D600 bodies by the boat load. Surprising to me, how many are selling their D7k to buy one.
It could pay to wait. When supply catches up with demand there will be sales on the D600, especially when/if the D400 is announced in the Spring. The price of the D7k is a real bargain right now. I expect the surplus of used D7000s to be used up soon after Christmas. And, if the D400 is not announced before PMA/CES in January, there may be a resurgence of used camera buyers wanting to go back to or pick up a (what I consider top of the line) DX camera.
If the money is burning a hole in your pocket (NAS attack!), it would be a lot better investment to buy some Pro FX Glass. The AF-S Nikkor 28-300 VR was my favorite lens on my D7000 and is now dedicated to my D800. I also just bought a second one for my second shooters D600. The 24-84, 24-120, 14-24, 17-35, 16-35, 24-70, 28-70, 70-200, 80-200, 80-400, and 200-400 + lots of primes are all much more likely to rise in price than a camera body.
