I agree with Richard. It is way too easy to get caught up in newer equipment. I have a D200 which I love. I too was thinking of moving up until I met a press photographer here in Montreal. He was carrying two D200's. I asked him how he liked them. He showed me one of them and it was the most beat up camera I have ever seen. He told me that this D200 had seen two tours of Afghanistan. It had been baked, covered in sand, soaked and dropped more times than he cared to remember. AND it still takes great pictures. So I figured, if a man who's livelihood depends on a D200, then it was plenty of camera for me. Now, I still look at all the new stuff, and if I ever win the lottery I might buy a D600, instead I simply go home and hug my D200.
