{osted this in the 700 forum as well...many of you here have moved from 700's to 800's I'm sure and I know it's been discussed before...but, again, I'm a bit confused.

I'm good for a new 700 with battery grip in terms of financing...so, do I do it??

Here's my dilemna....

I've moved more and more into the hobby...in the past 3 years I've owned 2 D60's, and now own a D7K....

Lenses, i've owned the Tokina 11-16, 18-200 Nikon, 18-105, 18-55....sold / traded them as I have invested in FX glass.

Currently own:

Nikon 14-24 2.8 / 24-70 2.8 / 24mm F1.4
Sigma: 50m 1.4 / Sigma 70-200m 2.8

75-80% is portrait and street shooting / lower light natural shooting / and i like and use strobes a lot...have home studio set up....

25% of outdoor landscapes, etc.

So, what to do??? All I've read, the D700 is all I'd need....I'd sell my other D60 and keep the D7k as backup....but, I don't think I want the D800 due to file size and cost ???...but, my buds say....don't buy older technology (D700)....wait, get the next gen D600....but, that could take another 18 months to get your hands on one....

Everyone who posts here says the jump from DX to FX is clearly recognizable in their work....

Please advise.....look forward to your suggestions....
