The upgrade merry-go-round does get tedious. But I think that is what the manufacturers want us to do. I am "stuck" with my D300, and while the way it exposes often drives me mad, and the needlessly complex menus, narrow latitude and poor high ISO performance does drive me nuts, I'm not going to shell out another $2500 on just a body, and then have to invest thousands more in FX glass. While I think I made a mistake in the investment in the DX format, I'm just going to try to make the most out of it, and work on my skills. Shooting film as often as I do has also made me a better digital photographer, and forced me to slow down.
