I have a D300 I bought about 3 months ago.. I alrady have D700 NAS!!
After a long break from photog, I had twin baby boys.. I got a D300 and right back into taking pics daily; took a course, weekly downloads/dumps to friends/family, joined all online groups, etc. I'm hooked!! I am into available light, low lite, portrait, candids, family, general photo, etc. I refuse to use a flash!! I love avail lite pics. But I find myself taking pics above 1600 ISO often, trying to use Noise Ninja to reduce all the noise and blurrs. Not fun. Plus my wife is hypercritical..

However, I am not a pro!! I also do not take pics of landscape or wideangle anything. My first mission is to document my children's lives and ours as we suffer through this all!!!

So, I recently have been thinking about spend some more $$$ on photo stuff. I only use a 50mmf1.4 lens right now. I was thinking of adding an 85mmf1.4, 24/35mm lens, and Expodisc. But now I'm thinking about the D700.. And if I had a D700, 50mm, & 85mm lens I think I would be set for a while. (Until the kids are outside and truly mobile).

Now: Advice Please.. Anyone go from D300 to D700 with feedback?
Am I better off spending the $$$ on more glass and occaions to take pics?

THANK YOU
