I'm still very disappointed with the way Nikon have been treating their consumer base, DX and CX, regarding lenses and pro level suppor (DX). I actually like the V3, despite the high price, which will come down quickly. I don't get their policies, which, btw, is the norm in the ML field, start very high and drop fast.

Nikon have always been about FF, and that is becoming more and more the case. They were never able, like Oly or Canon have, to produce excellent compacts (and I'm talking about their long history, since the 1950s). DX was an intermediate period, until the got the D3 right, and they have produced very few good dedicated zooms to that system.

I think I will give a chance to an m43, GX7 or OM10, and a fast zoom. If that works well in comparison to the D7000, I may drop DX as well and get an FF for when it's needed. But maybe it won't be needed. Nikon, you are slowly losing a long-time friend.
