Hi all,

I'm a loyal Nikon person who started with an FM 10 and then got lucky in a Superbowl box and bought an F5 (which I adored for years) and then progressed (regressed?) into the early digital world with a D100. Although I was initially fond of it, the sharpness issues drove me into the arms of a D200 where I am today.

I like the D200 a great deal (especially when compared to the D100 which slowly rots in a drawer) but I was angered by the swift addition of several models immediately after my D200 purchase which made me question the wisdom of not waiting for a camera like the D300 and ultimately, the D700.

Here I sit, with adequate funds for a D700, worried that the day after my purchase the D700x or D900 or D28000 will be released and I will be furious all over again. I welcome the FX coverage, larger pixel capacity, and from what I hear I could actually use the higher ISO options without feeling the equivalent of 'digital zoom' for once.

That said, is this the right time to invest in a late-run model? All this rumor talk makes me crazy. I know that Steve Jobs of Apple was once questioned on this same fear with regards to emerging technology and he said something along the lines of "If you're always waiting for the next model to come out you will never own anything". So I get that on the one hand but having felt screwed over by Nikon I'm a touch gun-shy with $2500.

Your thoughts are appreciated.
