Re: D50 Upgrade Plan - your thoughts please!

I agree. The 70-300mm would NOT deserve a FF DSLR like the D600, the issue really is the speed at the tele end.

I understand the excitement to take professional-grade crystal clear images at a sporting event. Maybe you wanna consider the D7000 now (to save you $1,100 over D600), sell your 70-300mm and bite the bullet to get a 80-200mm F2.8? Or, if you are even more adventurous, get a 1.4x telecoverter to extend that tele zoom to close to 300mm? I understand the speed would be slower because of the converter, but most experts agree that the Nikon 1.4x would not introduce appreciable IQ degradation.

You just need to play with the $$ a bit, AND should be willing to unload some lens(es) and/or DSLR body to cut the additional costs down a bit.
