Larry,
Words from someone wiser than myself. The voice of reason is a distant echo right now. The wise choice is to stick with the D700 but for once in my life I can afford the latest offering and pre-order it. NAS has taken hold of me and I'm sure I will take delivery of the D800 but what I should be doing is keeping the D700 and buying a couple of Alien bees or that 80-200 2.8 that I've been lusting after for 2 years now. The Alien Bees or the 80-200 will be going strong long after the D800 is replaced.
As for the images, I get just fine results from my wife's D70 and 18-55 kit lens and actually enjoy shooting with it. I run a local camera club and when members say that my D700 takes great photos and they wish they had one, I always say that I can do the same with their cameras. I even took my wife's D70 with me to a photoshoot over the weekend because my friend's brother said that he needed to sell his D90 because my images looked so good and he needed a better camera. I shot several images with the D70 to prove to him that it was the photographer and the lighting and not the camera that made the images look good.
Now I feel like a real hypocrite for buying a D800 but I just can't help it, I kinda feel like I'll be missing out if I don't buy it. The funny thing is, I know it wont make my photography any better but just having it will make me feel better, which in turn will help me be more creative..........maybe!
