    You could buy some nice watches if you sold all that...

    I see you have the D700 - that's the body that I covet with the full frame sensor. Do you find you can shoot with a higher ISO with the D700 over the D300?

    (I have a D200)

    one good camera is all you need. It's not so much about the bodies as it is about the lenses IMO.

    But if I sold my cameras, how would I make enough money to splurge on watches? lol

    love my D700. I love my D300 too, but I always tend to reach for the 700 when i'm taking pictures and the 300 has become my secondary camera. I'm actually considering investing in a D3s or possibly waiting for the D4 body to have 2 FF cameras and have the 300 be the permanent backup.

    The high ISO pics are fun at first, but it's more enjoyable to me to be able to take a portrait shot at ISO 1000 and have as clean of an image as I would with ISO 200 on the D80 I used to have.

    ...yes - that's what I'm looking for. The ability to take fewer shots with a flash.

    ...but it's a great debate. Another watch? Or the D700. I'm hoping the FF Sensor will start to show up in less exspensive bodies.

    you can buy a good used D700 now for around $2,000. The replacement camera is around the corner, so the price is going to do nothing but go down soon. Keep your eyes peeled... never hurts. ;)

    Love those Pocket Wizards. Had a pair of Multi Max tranceivers and miss their flexibility.
