Hey All!

I unfortunately recently had to return my D300 to B&H do to a faulty autofocus system. Now, I am without a camera! Gasp! However, I now find myself in an interesting predicament and I'm hoping some of you great people can help me out. I currently only have a 50mm f/1.8 lens in my bag (along with a spot missing a camera that needs to be filled). I have two options and only enough money for one. I'm debating whether to buy another D300 and buy a 17-55 f/2.8 DX or spring for the D700. If I purchased a D700, I would only have enough money to keep the 50mm f/1.8 and possibly buy another inexpensive prime. I know the rule typically is buy a good body and splurge on glass, but I'm wondering if I should go for the AMAZING FULL FRAME body and worry about the better glass later. The 50mm and possibly an 85mm should serve for quite some time? Any response is greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much,

Brennan
