You haven't completed a profile, so I don't know what kind of shooting you do. However, as a semi-pro (I use a camera in my public relations work but don't make most of my income from photography), I would say that unless you need the immediate access to your photographs which digital cameras permit, you would would be better off with the lenses. You can always scan slides or negatives with a high quality scanner to get a good digital print, but as you and others have noted, digital technology is changing so fast that any digital camera you buy now will be worth considerably less a few months from now. About the only people I know who use high-end digital cameras in their work are photojournalists who need their images ASAP, and those cameras are supplied by their employers who can afford to upgrade as often as necessary. However, I know that a lot of advanced amateurs purchase the D-1 for their own use, so you have to ask yourself if you want to part with that much money for a body you may not be able to trade or resell for much in the future.
