Just got hit with $4K car repair bill today and I've either got to pay for it or buy a used car. Am thinking of selling my D3 and replacing with F5, which should net me around $2,200 or get an F6 which would only net me about $1K.

I used to own an F5 and really disliked the black focus markers. I do still own an F100. Maybe I should just use that as my FX camera and perhaps buy an MB15 grip. This is not something I want to do, but I may be forced to do it generate some cash.

I do also own a D300. However, I want to keep a backup camera because I plan to start a small wedding photography business in a few months when I retire.

Any thoughts or suggestions?
