All depends on what you shoot.
I am a working pro in the UAE. I shoot family portraits, landscape, macro and some pj stuff. I shoot over 95% of the time in bright, glorious sunlight or indoors with several speedlights. I don't need high ISO values. I can get high shutter speeds at f8 on my 80-200mm f2.8 AFED at 100-160ISO with no trouble at all.

I have just bought a used D2Xs and love it to pieces. It produces amazing images - great colour, great contrast. DO I want a D4? You bet - but I don't need one. I don't need a D3S but I'd love one. I don't need massive files, but I'd love a D800E. (I recently produced some prints for a local school that were 120cm x 80cm from a D200 and they love them and they look great... New DSLRs are wonderful but are not always necessary... the D2Xs is fine for me... at the moment...

D3 + 20mm f2.8 AFD + 105mm f2.8 AFD + 300mm f4 AFS

Hunger pays a heavy price to the shining Gods of speed and steel
