I work as a photojournalist for a newspaper. Believe it or not ....forever I have just been using my D40x and a 50 f.1/4 prime Nikon lens and a 55-200 DX lens. Life has been good. I shoot an event every day. I do portraits on the side. I have taken many good shots with an entry level camera.
Oddly enough, my camera has been just fine- but for a year- I have wanted to move to a full frame and have more ISO capability for nightime events. I am now moving into shooting sports and need the 70-200 lens f2.8 badly.
For a year, I have been reading and waiting for the D700 upgrade...I have stalked this forum and read everything possible on the net. I don't think I can't wait for Summer or Fall now and have a huge trip next month to Europe where I am doing a travel piece.
Will I regret buying the D700 now when the new camera arrives....again when and if?
I potentially would like two bodies but I only have 5000.00 to spend right now and I don't anticipate buying another body shortly after.
I am also shooting a couple of weddings mid summer and fall, so I need the equipment more than ever. I need the portrait work for summer for more income.
I have considered going to Canon- but I completely love the Nikon system and glass. Now I can finally afford what I want -I can't get an updated camera quick enough.
Please help me.....I am in a sink just swishing in a circle around the drain.
