I don't "need" one, I just WANT one. I will prolly sell one of my D80's or my D40 to help pay for it. Anybody want a good used D80 in a couple months, let me know (I take care of my stuff). Actually, the features I am looking forward to most are a faster frames per second rate, better autofocus and (strangely enough) live view (I shoot a LOT of pictures at arms length with the camera lens pressed up against cages), plus the ability to shoot a lot more lenses than the D80 can. So... that is what I am going to do. Now, I have to save up my pennies (and sell my PowerMac G5 with 20 inch cinema display, and my D80) to pay for it!
