Larry... It must be a Minnesota thing. I am in the same boat as you. February will be the longest I can hold out I think. D4 is on my horizon. Thing is....I LOVE my D3. I keep justifying it to myself with a bit more crop ability without resolution issues, as well as the ability to work in dark gyms and hockey arenas above ISO 3200 (my current typical ISO) . Hmmmm...... Must be all this cold weather.
