I am reposting this here and at the D700 forum to see if anyone can help me out.

I am interested in purchasing my first DSLR after borrowing my
friends' for years. I am looking to start a small
portrait/wedding photography business on the side after second shooting for some pros for a while. I have been told to
get both, but my pocketbook won't let me. I want the D3. I
like the ruggedness, the dual CF cards, the 5:4 format ratio.
However, it's $2 grand more. I keep wondering if the D3x price
will go down and I can get a better deal on the D3 later. Or
should I just bight the bullet and by the D3 now. I will
probably only be able to afford the flash and one other lens
if I go that way for now. I could probably get another lens
at Christmas. I was thinking about getting the 50mm or 85mm
now and then perhaps getting the 70-200 later.

I would like a camera that will last me for a few years and
perhaps beyond as a backup camera. The D3 may fit that bill
nicely. However, I noticed it wasn't even for sale on Beach
camera.

Any thoughts - urgently. I want to buy soon!
