Good to be back in dpreview. Since I have been gone (around 3 years) I have upgraded from a D50 to a slightly used D2x. My first question is does anyone still use this model? I am an intermediate photographer and I am wanting and amassing tools to work on portraiture. I have a small studio setup in my house, as well as access to a real studio leased by friends who have let me use their space and some equipment. I have 1 SB900 and an umbrella and stand, 1 43" 5 way reflector, as well as various other bounce cards. I also have decent size windows that let in good natural light. I use Elements 7, Lightroom 3.2, and am buying Portrait professional 10 soon. Does this sound like a decent plan?

I have had a D2x for about 6 years now. It's a great camera but requires lots of dsicipline to use well. I can use it in my sleep I know it so well.

I recently upgraded to the D7000 and wow it beats the D2x in every aspect .

Sell the D2x and buy the D7000. In particular the DR is astoundingly better, almost 3 stops better, it's the same as the D3x. I can't really find anything I dislike about the D7000. I really have no reason to pick up the D2x.... The D7000 is probably the best value in the Nikon Camp, ever.
