You mean second banana? Bananas take better pictures than fiddles, I hear. That sounds like a sound plan.
I was originally thinking of selling the D1x along with the brand new D90 I bought for the wedding (which is being sold now), and then buying a D7000. But I reconsidered, and decided I'm going to wait it out for a while and see how all you guys like your D7000s. I'll get one eventually, but I can get by with the D1x/H for the forseeable future, no problem. I've decided I'm keeping both of them, because they AF so fast with screw-drive lenses.
An undeniable paradox: To think that there is any such thing as an absolute rule is at worst naïve, and at best, shortsighted. There is no such thing as an always-true, all context- or situation-salient, absolute rule that always holds true…including this one!
