I came to the same conclusion, which convinces me to stick with my D7000. I know I have a lot to learn, not just about my camera, but about lighting and how to control it. Of the 3 sides of the Camera, Lens, and Lighting triangle, the camera is the side you can get by with cheaper equipment. Glass and flash make or break the equation far more.

I quite agree. Education, not new equipment, in this context is more beneficial.

Don't let NAS be your motivation. Better images are more important.
