I would miss using my 10 pin connection, my external grip and my full alloy body. Plus the layout is similar to my D70s. It's ok but I much prefer my D300 layout. I would also have to buy new cards and batteries...minor inconvience but still a pain. I will keep my money until Nikon makes a camera that I really want to own. It's not like I make my living shooting photos. It's my beloved hobby.
