Very well put. I would suggest though that if FX is your future, you might want to just sell the D200, suck it up for a second D700 and sell the 17-55 lens too as the more the D700 and D3 get published and gain more acclaim, the less all the DX stuff is going to be in demand.

I just got off of a very physically and mentally challenging back country expedition to a highly rugged and remote area. The D700 and the single 28mm 2.0 AIS lens I brought did so well I might just sell my D3 and get another D700.

Now I know why Nikon waited so long on FX. They wanted to make darn good and sure it kicks ever loving a$$ with AIS glass!
