Well said, Howard. I do shoot in low light often, and I do have to shoot wide subjects from a short distance, so I am excited about using the FX format. As an aside, am I the only one that subscribes to the notion that bodies come and go, get the best lenses that you can afford. When I add up what I've spent, the price of a new body (even a new D700) is just a fraction of what I have spent on my lenses. Something as basic as a good tripod and ball head can easily be over $1000. AAAARRRRRRGGGGHHHHHH...when does it end?
