I JUST bought the $1800 85mm 1.4G lens. I'm going to spend about $3000 for the camera - and I'm looking at another $2000 for the wide angle.

This raises another issue - the 85mm f1.4 and the 24/35 f1.4 have better corner quality on DX D300s, and better central quality as well on D3100, D5100 and D7000 other than the much more expensive 24 MP D3x.

Is this the right time to be buying into D700 12 MP - more money for often less image quality

Good photography is mainly about doing simple things well. The challenge is doing simple things well enough for good results.
