    So my wife and her mom have decided to sell one of their businesses because they can't be there all the time to make it grow the way it had in the past. So from the profit of the sale, my wife is paying off all our debt, paying a good chunk to our house, and also putting more money in the baby's savings/other funds. None of it is fun money! :(

    What this means though is that I have a green light to put away a good amount every paycheck toward the things I want, and not have to pay my booking money to bills!

    And the main thing I want now are some pocketwizards, and some lighting. Should have those soon, which then would let me start saving for that full frame sexiness!!! If all goes according to plan, should have everything by early next year!

    Hope the price of the D700 drops at least a little by then since the new 5D is coming out. :x:

    Awesome, I'd get the studio stuff first!

    I am not looking forward to the day when all of my money does not go towards toys. :run:

    I'm gonna get some pocket wizards for xmas i think.

    I want to get lighting too. :noes:
    I think the D300 will hold me over for quite some time. If i ever do go full frame, i'd go with a D3... But thats so far away. I need lenses and lighting first.

    That OneLight dvd helped out a lot. :bowdown:

    I'll probably get the lighting before x.mas... I just don't want to buy lights here, triggers there, and wait to get more stuff. Just wait and do everything in one full sweep. I can wait the camera for now. Have 2 great cameras that work just fine! D700 would just be the 'check out what I have' toy/primary camera.
