I would definitely prefer to have this model over my D7000, but I am so torn between crop frame sensor and a full frame model. I have been admiring the D800 for quite a while, but the fact is I really can't invest in the glass now. I have only 2 relatively inexpensive lenses in my kit, so it's not like I'd be throwing too much equipment overboard. It's going to be a while anyway before I can even consider another camera, so this is all just hypothetical anyway. One can dream, right?
