Thanks Bill for the nice comments.

I believe you would not generally notice the difference with FX vs DX with most of the types of photos you take. Others have explained the differences. They are generally pretty subtle in my opinion! The D7000 has very good image processing engine and a better dynamic range than the D90 and you would appreciate that a lot. Also the high ISO performance of the D7000 is excellent. I am not saying that the D700 and the D800 are better. You get what you pay for and both are very expensive. The fact you have enjoyed your D90 for so many years is great. If you were to go for an FX camera (D700/800) you would have to get FX lenses of you are not getting the benefit of the FX format. FX lenses are generally more expensive that DX and heavier than DX lenses. So if you go FX the cost of the lenses is probably the biggest consideration in the longer term.
