#5. "RE: My upgrade dilemma: buy D7000 or wait?" In response to In response to 4
TJ (and Larry) --
I'm sort of leaning in the direction of "D7000 now" but your confirmation of the wisdom of that approach helps.
What do you think about the new vs. refurbished vs. used question? I've never had a refurbished item from Nikon. One of our two bodies was bought used on Nikonians and nearly all of our lenses were bought used -- most here on Nikonians, but a couple on eBay. I've never had a problem with a used item, thanks to reliable sellers, but I'm a little leery of another used camera body given all that could go wrong. (Having said that, it was the new D90 - not the used one -- that required Nikon service!)
There's a distinct possibility that I'm thinking about this too much...
