I here ya John. I picked up the D7000 once at a local camera shop, it was much too small for my hands. All my shots of wildlife have been taken hand held, I have tried tripods and don't care for them while shooting BIF. I have been in the building industry all my life, the last 33 years. Not super old but I am now 50 and the body is telling me it doesn't need to be hand holding the 200-400 all day anymore so I have been thinking about selling it for a while anyway. I thought I would wait for the D400 spec's to show up before I sold it, this was over a year ago. I shoot a lot of landscape stuff as well and print large so was also looking for more pixels, I was hoping it was going to be 24mp for the D300 replacement. So, much better ISO and 24mp and I would stay DX. But the delay of the D300 replacement has me looking at the D800 with 36mp. It has got me thinking for sure. I even thought about looking to see what Canon had to offer. Just tired of waiting I guess.
