Every month or so a few Photog's and I meet for a few pops and discuss different topics. ( the last topic was the value of PP)..whew..kinda got beat up on that one..

The lates topic was: If you're starting out into the DSLR world from Film, what do you buy? (not a novice at photography)

One camp was supportive of starting off with a say a D60, D80 and then gradually moving up to say a D700 or D3 within a reasonable amount of time.

The other camp was emphatic of doing research and bypassing entry level gear and then determining how much investment is needed for top of the line gear, aquire the funds and THEN purchase your gear.

The twist was: If you cannot finance the "best" then it's best to wait until you can. Thus saving the dollars you would have spent aquiring entry level gear.

One fellow emphasized that had he not bought a D40 with DX lenses, then a D80, then a D300 with more DX lenses and finally a D3. He could have just saved his money until he could buy a D3 and the money he saved by not going entry level first, his lens inventory would be much healthier.
