Guys, i got a Nikon 7000 for almost 1 year now. It's good and superb. I got the fix 50mm 1.8 lens , 55-300mm tele lens and sb600 flash. I'm thinking off realeasing it and get better one,but i cannot determine the value of it.. Any suggestion on the better set to replace this..? And i need a suggestion value on the current set.. Thanks anyway guys...
Actually i'm planning to replace this set with the D 800 with more goods lens.
Overall i like to capture all , nature and object , but not sport.
Well , we all know that this is an expensive hobby but a really hooked one...D 800 is quite expensive and the set of good lens cost more, so i need to let go this set first...After seeing some respond , i can see that USD 1,400 is not a bad offer , isn't man?
randysawit at yahoo dot com is open for personal offer , feel free to made some offer
Are you considering upgrading the entire kit or just some part of it? The D7000 is the best DX format camera available so that is not likely in need of upgrading. The lenses however are good but not stellar like the camera. If the 50mm is the f/1,8D model, the newer 1.8G model is better in almost every aspect except price. It is about twice the price of the 1.8D. The 55-300 is a bit slow but pretty sharp. What do you shoot that requires 300mm? If wildlife, a faster lens would be helpful but that can get expensive. The most popular quality zoom lens that covers most of that range is the 70-200mm 2.8VRII which sells for about $2,400 and would be a real upgrade over the image quality and low light capability of the 55-300. The SB600 flash is quite good and upgrading would only give incremental improvement in features and power. A good book or workshop on using external flash would be the best investment. Flash, when done well, adds a great many creative options in higher quality photos.

If you're determined to sell your excellent D7000 (I wouldn't - I agree with Stan) in favour of a D800, you'll also have to decide on how fast your new lenses have to be in order to satisfy your shooting needs. Personally, I'd go for either the Nikkor 24-70 f/2.8 or the Nikkor 24-120 f/4 VRII for most needs, plus either the Nikkor 70-200 f/2.8 or the terrific 70-300 f/4.5-5.6 VR for longer shooting. Either pair of lenses will cover the focal range you're using now.
The 50mm 1.8D is a great lens regardless of what many want to say. I have licensed more images I have made with that lens than any other I own. Never had a rejected deal just because I used the 1.8D instead of my 1.4
