Hi, I purchased a D800 a few months ago and am making my way to acquire more FX lenses. Right now I have a 50mm 1.8G Prime and a 70-200mm 2.8 VRII. My next lenses will be a 14-24 2.8 and a 105mm VR Micro. I will fill in the 24-70 gap eventually.

But, I currently still own a D7000 and a Tamron 17-50mm 2.8 DX.

My thought was to sell the DX body and lens and use the money to fund a new FX lens. I am having a very hard time selling the D7000 on CL or this sight. I have had to reduce my price considerably. And with the new price decreases that will happen as they phase out the V1 of the D7000 it looks like I may not get more than $750-800 for the body and about $300 on the lens.

So, for the question - - For about $1100 current value on this DX setup, should I keep it for use as a second/backup camera, or should I sell and use the $1100 to fund some of the lenses above. Is it worth having a second or a backup body. I am armature right now, but looking to get into paid real estate photography at some point. Financially I am not hard up for cash, I will fund the lenses eventually, but having that extra cushion from the sale will speed things up.

Thanks for any comments!
