I am going back and forth, here's my situation. I have started to get some paid work doing parties, fund raisers and have my first wedding shoot in March, as a second shooter. I am having trouble deciding to purchase a D300 AND the 24-70 ( which fills the midrange 2.8 void for me) or just the D 700, leaving me to shoot with the 50 1.8, 18-70 (D 70 kit lens) and the 18-200VR. Yes I know it is a DX lens which is part of the dilemma.

Going with the D700 means using the 1.4X with the 70-200. What will I be loosing by going with the D700 and not having the 24-70 for a while and using the other glass? Am I giving up that much by going with the 300 in the low light and using the 24-70? will I loose anything using the 18-200 on the d700?

I heard using the d700 with the 50 1.8 is fabulous. I have read in Ken Rockwell that the cheappie 28-80 is a good second to the 24-70 if you cant get the 24-70?

Any insight is really appreciated.
