Just for kicks:

You loose ALL of youy camera gear which was insured. Due to a technical glitch in the policy, your only given $10K payout but you have to spend it on new camera gear...

What would you buy, today..right now if everything was in stock at your local camera store???

and why would you buy it?

This should be fun, I hope...


I'd buy a D800 and sell it on e-bay for $2700 the next day. I would use the money to get a used D700 in excellent condition w/ 11k shutter count like i have now for $1000. The reason I would do this is that even though the D800 is a fantastic, ground breaking state of the art camera is 12MP is all I need since I don't print that big and i want to prioritize lenses over camera bodies.  The D700 is complimentary to the D300 w/BPP+L-bracket that I already have.
