Nice post - in your first paragraph replace Pentax ME Super with Olympus OM-2n and it sounds like my own photographic history. And your reference to cycling: There is also something like NAS when it comes to cycling. In my case it was called CAS (Cannondale....) and I knew very well that the even ligher road bike frame would not make me faster or a better cyclist, but still I wanted it. It is just awesome to lift an ultralight bike...

Back to our photography: Like you intend to leave out the D700 (I hope for you that you will succeed, but NAS can hit in quite hard), I left out the D300 hoping for a less expensive low light full frame (I love 14mm) alternative to the D3. Now that the D700 is here, I am tempted, even though I currently enjoy the challenge to max out the D200 capabilities with carefully chosen low light exposure plus Aperture 2 and Noise Ninja (with good results!) - still, I'm thinking about the D700.

Enjoy your D300 and I really agree with what has been said before: In many cases the gear does not matter, in fact I took quite a number of great shots with a low spec Casio P&S just because I carried it in my pocket when I would never have taken the big one with me...
