OK Nikon has finally released the digital camera I was waiting for. If I hadn't been forced to replace my kit and already own a lovely D70s there would be no issue - TIME TO BUY A D200.

However I do have the D70s and when I saw "yes I'll spend $3000 I dont have on my hobby" I start to wonder should I be buying lenses instead?

I can see a lovely 70-200VR or maybe 80-400VR, or perhaps a 180Micro, a few last portrait primes, and then theres an SB800, or the new macro flash system (now that would be nice). Oops sorry NAS carrying me away.

So I'm in a bit of a bind. The D200 has the MP, speed and layout I want but it could buy me a 'real' lens and a flash. Mind you I'm relatively happy with the lenses I have though something looong or fast (70-200VR and teleconverter, hmm) would be very nice.

Any suggestions on which way to jump?

I'm nearly done. Only one more shot. Just give me five minutes...
