I did the same thing, so welcome to the moron's club! I sold a Canon 7D and all my Canon gear. I was left with a crappy Canon 350D and kit lens Ugh!!!

I had withdrawals for weeks as I usually bring my camera with me wherever I go.

In hindsight, I should have waited until the D800 arrived before I sold.

Thankfully I've had the D800 for 3 weeks so the everything is back to normal.

You might want to consider renting a camera in the meantime!!!

I've always heard of impulse buys, but now I've set the impulse sales standard. I've thought about renting, but I don't really have any paying gigs right now and feel it would be a little bit of a waste. I think a cheap DSLR/mirrorless/compact in the meantime will probably be sufficient. The friend that I sold the D700 to agreed to let me use it from time to time as well.

The higher end mirrorless/rangefinder cameras are tempting to try, but I just don't want to spend $1000+ on a second camera I may not keep and have to resell. Heck, if I had the dough I'd get one of the new monochrome Leica's and practice my B&W skills for awhile. Heck, maybe I should just do that anyway with whatever camera I get.
