Re: Just cancelled my D600 order

You are wise! I'm still shooting with a D200 and have been getting increasingly enthusiastic about the D700 now that the price has dropped. I have a 12-24 f4, a 17-55 f2.8, a 60 f2.8 D, and a 70-200 f2.8 VR1. I had a 50 f1.4 D until recently. I considered going to the D800 when it came out. I would have had to sell the DX zooms and get a 16-35 f4 VR and make do with the 50 and 60 in the middle.

I would take a hit in the wallet, end up with a much larger wide zoom to carry, and have no wonderful fast zoom in the middle. Plus I would have to look at upgrading my computer and storage. Would the images be so much more stunning? I seldom print larger than 13x19. I sold the 50, bought the 35 f1.8, and will wait until Spring to buy a new DX when it comes out or maybe even the D7000 and grip if the price is right. That 35 is a wonderful little lens and my 60 still behaves like a 90!
