I have a D3 but am looking for a worthy camera to purchase for when I travel but don't expect to have much opportunity to photograph such as when I am on business trips. In those situations the D3 is overkill and I always have to carry it around because it's so valuable.

Forgive me but I was actually considering the Olympus EP-1 because I still have old Zuiko lenses from my OM-1 and the EP-1 is light and small with good specs. But my girlfriend who has a D40, which is incredibly light, suggested I consider one of the prosumer Nikons. The D300 is more than I wanted to spend right now.

I'm looking to spend about $1000 or so, what's the best companion camera? Obviously, it could also serve as a back up to displace my Fuji S2. So I'm looking for light, relatively compact, and of course great image quality.

Thoughts, Nikonians?
