Just pulled the trigger on one a few minutes ago, it will be here next week. Bought it from B&H (I used the link at the top right corner of the page here, so TPF gets a little love from them). I will post a review of it when I get it (although the lens is well known). I had some fundage sitting there for either glass or studio lights, and I was leaning towards lights... until I sat down and really thought it out... I *think* I will enjoy using studio lights, and learning indoor portraiture... but I *KNOW* I will use the 70-200 2.8 every single week of the year... and B&H had it in stock (not always the case, it is often unavailable). The good news is I still have $750 in my fund after dropping for the lens, so I can save up a few more bucks and buy myself a basic set of Alien Bees. After that? 2.8 wide angle glass. I really, REALLY want a D3, but I am putting my money where my mouth is... I always claim to believe that it is far better to spend your money on good glass than a camera body, so I think unless/until I have a NEED for a D3 I am just not going to get one, and stick with the D80's.
