I know, I know.. I've been debating my next upgrade for months now and still have not 100% decided Originally I thought I'd get the D700 to start shooting with a full frame camera (which I still intend to do, but can only afford one thing at a time). Then I thought I'd try the 70-200mm 2.8 lens out, but the thing was SO heavy! Now, I'm thinking that lenses may be a better investment in the long run, and make a more dramatic impact on my pictures than an immediate camera upgrade. I'd also sort of like to wait a bit longer anyway, just to see what awesomeness Nikon may replace the D700 with, though I'm sure the current model is MORE than I need. Anyway.. to my question! Despite its weight, and with a bit of peer pressure from the massive amount of people posting with this lens:mrgreen:... I'm thinking I could do a lot with something like the 70-200mm 2.8. Would it be too heavy for my little D5000? I'm worried about the camera, because it's not a metal build, and I seem to remember hearing horror stories about lenses possibly ripping off the front of entry level camera bodies... Or would it be alright? Originally I didn't think they had one that could autofocus on my camera, but I'm looking at B&H where it's listed as "AF-S" which (to my knowledge) means the motor is in the lens, woot! So, would it work? Or would you still recommend the camera upgrade before lenses?
