Hi, thanks for your suggestion. A camera like the new Nikon would have been a dream camera for me a few years ago. The problem that I have is that I have never worked on a professional level with anything other than a system camera, interchangeable lenses etc. I'm wondering if I could continue in a professional capacity, with a lighter/smaller system, but as others have said, people expect pro photographers to have the biggest and best. I would/will seriously consider any fixed lens camera if I could get away with it, but I need portrait/wide-angle/macro capabilities if I want to continue as a pro photographer. If I end up concentrating on website design then I would definitely get away with "downsizing" my gear. As Bob Dylan said "the times they are a changing!".

Thanks for your suggestion.

Cheers

Let me give that a different spin, if I may.

I'm a customer, not a pro shooter. I got to this thread because it had a catchy title in the "top threads in dpreview.com" panel.

As a customer, I don't expect you to have the "biggest and best". I probably won't even ask you what kind of camera you have. I expect you to bring the equipment which _you_ believe will give me the best product. If the pictures are great, I'll be impressed by you and tell my friends.  If the pictures are crappy I'll blame you and not your equipment.

I wish you success with whatever you choose.
