Peolple, thanks for you words and thoughts.

Richard,
Yup, the D7K is pretty much top of the line on DX. Mybe I'll get to see those prices come down or a nex DX camera appear. But I guess my NAS for FX will not subside... blame Nikonians for this!

PAStime,
I find VR great for still subjects. But wide apertures are essential for both stopping movement (on the street and around jumping kids) on low light and on DX I'm always fighting for subject isolation and DoF control. Every little bit helps, although I agree, it's just a little bit.

Brian,
That's the most probable and reasonable course of action, waiting for some time.

Anthony,
Motion stopping, subject isolation, low-light performance, those are the areas I'm looking into. DX is very valid, but the best way to improve these would indeed be FX. There are always ways to minimize the problem and optimize the gear you have, but better gear, put to good use, should give more options and better results. Not to say the results I'm getting are not good, just saying they could be better. As for the Fuji line, the portability and simplicity are quite appealing to me, the operational speed is what's holding me back.

All,
This week I've confirmed that a recent knee injury I took has some severity and will require complex surgical intervention, keeping me grounded for a few months. No more outdoors photography for some time, so this is the chance to catch up on post-production skills, go through my archives to clean things up, and dream at night of walking the streets and jogging again. I may put some of my gear for sale and see if something comes up. The second hand market around here is being flooded with D7K from enthusiasts going FX, and my copy is one of the heaviest used (shutter count) I've seen for sale.

1. Good content, good aesthetics and good tecnique. On that order.
2. Light is more important than glass and pixels.
3. In the digital photography process, software is as important as gear.
