    but back to the topic

    I want a 7D pretty bad, but it's just not in the budget.

    I'll want a new camera when I think it will help me make more money, or give me a positive return on my investment. Currently, none of my clients are going to know if I'm shooting at 6.3 or 8 FPS, or care about the difference between a 10 MP or 18 MP image, OR appreciate more DoF from a FF camera.

    Figures this psycho wants a Canon. Nikon boys roll up in their Porsche and buy 2 just for the fun of it.

    Yeah I believe my D90 is more than I can handle for at least the next few years.

    I don't think it ever really ends. I've been loving my d700 for almost a year now. I still lust for and want a d3/s/x... even though the d700 is better suited for me (I use cls a lot) I still want to "upgrade"

    I don't want more gear as much as I want more free time to shoot stuff.

    If it was a group of young hot, good looking females.. then they could have mine...

    then I'd still have my 7d and I'd buy the 1dmk4 :mamoru:

    But again... my 5dmk2 has been sitting on my Manfroto in the den collecting dust (really) since Dec.. nothing to shoot and I'm bored

    you'd be surprised how much stuff there is around you to shoot

    especially after a quart of kerosene and a match

    I should know in a few weeks whether or not I'll be upgrading or not... come on work bonus!!! Assuming it's on par with what I've gotten in prior years I should end up with a nice little chunk of gear :big grin:

    Would love an upgrade to the 1d2 for indoor sports. No strobes is killing me. Borrowed a 7D last week and the high iso was nice.

    i find myself wanting the newest stuff all the time..only because i am male and its in our genes to want the newest electronics. hence my recent purchases. i dont even know anything about photography! :x

    on a sidenote, would it be better to get a regular laptop or a macbook pro? and if i get a mbp should i bootcamp it with windows 7? will be used soley for my photography.

    I'd be done if I had one of the new FF models. The 7D could hold me over for good long time though.
