    Hi, I am a seasoned photographer looking to upgrade from my Nikon D80. I have researched the D700 and it seems like an ample body, toting a full format sensor and 12 megapixels. I have a 17-50mm tamron and a 400mm F2.8D prime, so the body definitely has to be Nikon, with one exception: The Holga 120SF. I love the holga for its superior image quality and build quality. It is also way more portable than the D700 at a lower price. I am mostly doing street photography and portraits of peoople.

    I am deadlocked between these two bodies, so some help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    The Holga is defiantly my choice but woulda gone with the 120N and used my own flash

    I'd buy digital if you're doing this for anything besides a hobby (AKA: Work).

    And wait until Photokina. If Canon releases Bigfoot, it'll rival Nikon's first set of FF cameras.

    Man I need moar coffee. I thought the op meant hasselblad.

    I got a Holga from the Holga mods guy and I wasn't impressed. He sealed it so well that it doesn't get the desired light leaks I want. Bummer....I'll hopefully get one from freestyle.
