Yeah, but I've found that even when I'm using CLS, the 'spill' from the onboard flash (set to zero), is too much. And flagging it means that half the time, you're blocking the signal to your speedlight(s).

EDIT: on the D80, and D300

Yeah I just meant in comparison to what I paid for it, it'll still have it's decent used price tag like anything else.

Ive been waiting for the d800 or whatever to come out so that i can pickup a d700 for cheaper...

Should I just go for a d700 now? Want one pretty bad.

Yes, and then sell it to me, for cheap, when the D800 comes around.

Why "wait" for something you

1. Dont know when would be released
2. Dont know the specs other then speculation.
3. Waste time waiting instead of taking photos with the d700 which is real.

Nikon aren't known for announcing a product and it being immediately available, especially in the case of higher end products.

Is it going to magically produce photos that are 100% better than what could be taken on the D700? Using your logic you could then say that the D900 is going to be 100% better than the D800.. so why not wait for that then?

i dont mean better by 100%, i mean its for 100% certainty itll be better than D700

yeah there might not be any improvements to the end-image, but whatever DSLR kwax is using now probably has more than enough IQ anyway

the question he raised isnt really an appropiate discussion, only he knows what he wants to spend money on and when...
camera wise, all the facts have already been mentioned
