In common with many others I am currently struggling to make a decision to buy either a D700 or D300s. I currently own a D80 with 18-70 lens and also a 50 f1.8. I have recently retired and hope to spend more time on photography than I have been able to up to now. My interests are primarily landscape and family events.

After lots of reading on this site and others, I have narrowed it down to 2 options.

1. D300s with DX 12-24 f4 and DX 16-85 f3.5-5.6

2. D700 with 17-35 f2.8 and 24-120 f3.5-5.6

In both cases, a good landscape zoom and a general walkabout lens. Option 1 is clearly the cheaper, especially as I would be entitled to the free SB900 flashgun. It is also lighter, and would perhaps allow better use of my existing D80 (I would sell the 18-70 lens). It almost appears to be a 'no brainer', and yet I have a fear that I would always regret not making the jump to full format at this stage before I am too heavily committed to DX. Any comments would be most welcome.
