I have a D90 as well as a D7000!
I have decided to keep the D90 (18-105mm VR lens) as my general everyday use camera; and the D7000 is my specialised camera for high quality shots.
The thing with the FX D700 is that it is coming up to be 3 years old in April 2011. The D800 is on the horizon. The new D800 will have the improved Expeed 2 chip and image processing engine as well as probably double the megapixels of the D700 for finer details. Going by the improved D7000, the new D800 will be a killer of a camera!
Regards to lenses, I purchesed an FX 24mm F/2.8 AF-D and a 50mm F/1.8 AF-D prime lenses for less than $500 AUD. Both of these are superb lenses on FX, and you don't really need any others as they would be overkill.
I am waiting for the D800 to hit the shelves and will use the Bigma 150-500mm OS HSM telephoto lens for wildlife photography on the D7000. This telephoto lens can also be used on FX cameras!
There you have it. You don't need a closet full of realy expensive lenses to obtain superb quality pictures.
You do not need to follow the crowd either!
Alot of people have more money than sense and their photography is still poor even with expensive professional grade lenses.
Use your intuition, only obtain what you really need!
