I have recently come into a few dollars from my mothers estate. She always loved when I sent her new photos and constantly encouraged me in my photographic pursuits; therefore, I feel she would be very happy that I am planning on stepping up from a semi pro setup (D200 w/ prime lenses) to pro gear. I already know I want what I think of as "the holy Nikon trinity" of lenses, namely the 14-24, 24-70, and 70-200 2.8s.

My problem is this: Do I drop the cash on a D700 now, or shoot with my D200 until the D700 replacement drops?

On the con side of waiting, my D200 is getting a little long in the tooth.

On the pro side of waiting, I cannot afford to buy the D700 now and then upgrade when the D800 (or whatever) drops. While I know that the D700 is a significant step up from my D200... I am just unsure whether it is the best bet at this time.

What do you, the humble and knowledgable D700 users have to say?
