Hey everybody! This is my first post on this forum after spending quite some time reading everything I could.
A little about myself, I'm a 23 year old university student and my experience with cameras is limited. Other than an entry level Canon DSLR and a P&S I haven't done much photography at all. Recently I spent some time shooting with a Nikon D700 and it was absolutely incredible. I love taking GOOD pictures but have always felt that it was something best left to the pros with their proper equipment and years of experience. I never felt that I was doing anything justice when I took a snapshot with my POS camera.
Well, it turns out that it's not as difficult as I thought and now I would like to invest in a proper camera setup.
My main goal is to photograph sports events, and other types of general photography.
Initially I was thinking I'd go with the D300/D300s and a good set of DX lenses... Then I got to thinking, do I really want to invest in DX lenses?
Looking at the difference in prices I realized that I could easily pick up a D700 with a lens or two (thinking maybe a 24-70mm 2.8 to start). My only problem is that I'm pretty sure we're going to see a replacement for the D700 in the next few months. Is it better that I wait until a possible announcement?
My other consideration is to go all out and just buy a D3s. I'm pretty sure that if we see a D700s then it's going to be similar to a D3s but not better otherwise Nikon is going to piss off a lot of people. If we see a D700x or similar then it probably won't be as good in low light or for action shots as the D3s.
Thanks in advance for your help!
