Hi there!

I rented the D700 a couple of weekends ago and fell in love with the quality of images and the capacity of the D700. Have been longingly following the D700 forums for quite some time no

I'm ready to take the $ plunge and can go with the D700 now. Local camera store told me to wait as there were rumors for a D700 upgrade. I've followed the D3s and know that's now what I want. Also imagine more than I want to spend.

Would love the dual card slot..video would be amazing with my Lensbaby...but could also buy a lower end for "fun". I know how many of you feel about video--not my question! My REAL question is...do I make the move now, or wait a few weeks for whatever Nikon announcement comes in October?

Many of you have followed Nikon over the years and may be able to give me your educated guess. Is there a reason (aside from the obvious hype!)for the next release to be such a secret?

Purpose of my camera...to expand my capacity as a photographer and use the full potential of my FX lenses!!

Thanks!

Laura
