    What to buy, what to buy.

    Not enough for the D700, but enough for other stuff. Thinking of a flash ligtmeter and another SB800, maybe even a SB900!!! :noes:

    Good idea, but I want another flash :hs:

    I could always sell the D80 to bring me a few hundred closer to the D700 :noes:

    SB-800 FTW. My friend has a light meter and we never really use it since we're shooting digital it's not as much of a necessity. If you already have some lighting gear though, I'd say just save up for the 700...shooting at ISO3200 at night FTW...I haven't brought out my tripod since I got the thing

    I can cover 80% of it right now. Just don't know if I want to put the rest on a cc and pay it off. Cash = king!

    Definitely go the D700 route. You won't regret it once you're holding it in yours hands :)

    No selling the D300. That sucker is here to stay... and the only 14-24 I want is the f/2.8, which obviously I can't afford. YET! :)
