My wife is a CFO, so financial matters always go through her.

I explained that the D7000 with the 18 - 105mm VR lens is going to be about $1400.

But, before I let her hands wrap completely around my neck, I was able to let her know I would be selling the D5000 body, and 2 lenses. That the difference would only be about 500 or so.

And, the nice guy that I am, I would sell a couple of MY microphones from my home studio to make up the difference.

So, my wife is going to end up with a new toy. And we are both very happy about it.

I am still on the look out for a D700 that I can find used for less than 1800. It may not be there. If it isn't, I will be more than happy with the D7000.
