So after using the D40 happily for four years, I've taken the plunge and chased down a D7000. After a lot of vacillating (D90? D7000? D700?) I ended up back at the d7k, but opted for the AF-D f/2 35mm to go with it in case FX calls me back...

Why stay with DX? I have a brand spanking new 18-200 VRII sitting in the bag, and my photographic ambition far exceeds my ability and available time. So DX it is for now... A no-brainer to the external viewer perhaps, but the like was strong with the full format concept.

My initial impressions of the D7K aren't 100% though. Like others before me, I'm worried about the sharpness. I'll also acknowledge that I haven't given it a fair go in daylight, and hear the argument that the higher pixel count makes it harder to hide poor technique...

So I'll give it a go in full summer sunlight at Luna Park in Sydney tomorrow. Should be good mix - fairground fun, lots of colour and contrast, and small kids being scared witless by a big guy in a red suit.

Wish me luck!
