In the next month or two I plan on purchasing a new addition to my photo gear-either a new D7000 (body only) or a like new 17-55 2.8 from KEH.com. I currently have a D5000. It is my only digital body. My lenses are: Nikon afs-70-300vr, Nikon af-s 35mm 1.8, Sigma 10-20 EX HSM, Sigma 17-70 2.8-4. From evrything I've read here and other places the D7000 is far superior to the D5000 in every way. It doesn't hurt that it's now selling for less than $900 on Amazon. While the thought of two bodies is appealing, I'm intrigued by what I've read about the 17-55. I can purchase a like new lens for a little less than the price of the D7000. Faced with this choice, which would you get and why?
