I'd be optimistic if my company hadn't told us we are getting no bonus this year. (Sorry, but that made me cranky)That's what I bought my D7000 with last year. I am thankful to have a job though, so it's not all bad.
I will keep my FX glass until I can get an FX body, whether a used deal on a D700, or I save up for the D600. I think that's my best option. Meanwhile I have some learning to do, and that can be done on any camera. Light is light, and I want to understand how to control it better.
