i currently have a D50 and am considering upgrading. i am a freelance journalist who does a lot of travelling with my reporting (mainly in the Middle East and South America) and i want to be able to sell photographs from my travels to add an extra source of income (and enjoyment).

i started to use the D50 regularly about a year ago, and am now learning to manipulate aperture, shutter speed, ISO, manual focus etc, independently of the scene mode offerings. i typically shoot 2-3k images on a trip, and travel roughly every 3 months.

what i would like to know is first whether i am right in thinking i'd be well-advised to upgrade my camera body in order to increase the resolution, so i can produce a higher quality image / larger publishable image at 300dpi?

second - if i do need to upgrade, then how far do i need to go? i've looked at D90, D5000, D300s and D700 and found myself unable to determine which i need, given the combination of being at a relatively early point on the digital photography learning curve, but still wanting to produce publishable-quality images.

i only have basic lenses too, the 18-55mm kit lens and the AF-S Nikkor 55-200mm 4-5.6G.

any advice greatly appreciated!!
