    So when does one get a new body ? I am still shooting my D-70 from 2004, it works fine, and the amount of MP's seem to be fine with my style of shooting. Yes I would love the new D-700 but there are WAY too many lenses to get. :mrgreen:

    Sounds a bit like sour grapes that someone can spend an exorbitant amount of time and possibly money to fill their gear addiction, whereas the poster is not in a similar situation. Possible gear envy? NOYZE is a bit helter skelter with his purchases, but it is his money and motivations, not mine nor anyone elses.

    I do believe that the colloquialism is pokin'.

    I'm hearing penis envy from you wescobts. Allow me to piss you off.

    My first entrance to the digital world (I had shot film years before) was a Nikon D80. Now I got this with the kit 18-55mm and also purchased the 55-200mm (variable aperture). While I had the D80, I researched... a lot, and bought (not necessarily in the exact same order) the 50mm f/1.8, 85mm f/1.8, 35mm f/2, 300mm f/4, 12-24mm DX f/4, 24-70mm f/2.8, 70-200mm f/2.8 plus a 1.7TC.

    I thought I was done. Then the D300 came out, bought it because it fit my needs. Also purchased the Nikkor 105 f/2.8 micro. Stick a fork in me because I am well done.

    WTF? The D700... OMG. Then comes the 20mm f/2.8 because 1) I like primes and it was wide enough. Add to that 3x SB800 and a SB600, and all that encompasses with accessories.

    It's NOT A CHEAP HOBBY by any strecth of the imagination. But if you do your due diligence and research, the results are quite satisfactory.

    Just don't blow on someone that hasn't the attention span, but more money than you may have at the moment. I've seen great images from the D70, the Canon g9/10, all sorts.... and General Benson, if you're looking... the Pentax as well. In fact, my first SLR was a Pentax.

    wescobts, your post seems a bit juvinile in its attempt. Work with what you have at hand. Phuque the others and their gear.......

    EDIT: I'm changing this because I didn't realize this post was started simply to flame NOYZE!

    Seriously, who cares what the he!! anyone else spends their money on. He worked for it, he can by a Canon if he likes...(lol j/j)

    Anyway, what is this post even for? To attack NOYZE cause he now has the sickest DX DSLR out?

    Enjoy it NOYZE, and now focus on glass !

    Better watch your back--that one:lol: Pentax guy is a General!

    I thought the decision to buy the D300s was a smart move.

    I like to upgrade to a full frame body too .... but ..... I think I will step into the "L" lens club first before I will upgrade to FF body.

    For NOYZE, enjoy your camera! :)
    You know, life is short, enjoy it while we still can.
