Thanks for all of your suggestions. I have decided to keep my D90 and add some glass (Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G) and a speedlight SB-700. I'm looking forward to experimenting with my new equipment, and may consider upgrading to an FX body in the future.

Try a little softbox similar to:

with your speedlight.  It softens things up very nicely for very little cash.  I haven't tried other things yet but I'm starting to understand light on the camera is direct and triggers allow you to place lights at the side which change shadows to what you want.  You can do things with that speedlight the stock flash won't ever do.

So many toys, so little time ;-).

Grant.
