I have a D700 and as easily as I could upgrade to a D800/D800E and as much as I want to, it really doesn't fit my needs. A D3s or a D4 would really be more useful for me, and it's what I'll probably end up getting...

Like a p&s to my camera? Or does it just allow you to do so much more?

$6000 for a camera is crazy!
If I had $6k to blow right now, I'd spend most of it on a rimless custom Starphire glass tank and the trimmings. Then I'd look at a better camera to take pictures of it with any change left over.

Never argue with a fool. Onlookers often can't tell the difference.
Growing older is mandatory, growing up is optional.
My advice is free and worth every penny.

If I want TTL metering with any of my converted pre AI FX size lenses, I'll have to stick with the D3, D700, D300s, D300, D200 or D7000 none of which are inexpensive.

If I don't mind no metering, there are lots of options, some of them less expensive like the older gen 1 cameras. D90, D80, D70, D70s, D50, D100, D5100, D5000, D3100, D3000, D60, D40, D40x.

D40, D40x look good for now so I can use my macro gear at least. Get a D7000 someday...

My goal: Sell a photo for $7,000 to blow on camera gear. I haven't gotten my camera yet and I am already wanting a pro camera!

I don't see why not. There is always a percentage of the population that swings both ways

You guys are giving me a serious case of Nikon envy. I'm trying to scrape up the scratch to get an old D40 LOL so I can use some of my old lenses.
