Not a good bet, considering the problems with the first production of the D80, D5000, D600 and D800. I bought a D7k (up from a D80) because the D80 is showing its age and I didn't want to wait for the D7x00 to be born and finish teething. We could be talking next January before you'd be confident in buying one.
