    a few years ago, a members who start his hobby with a D70 here, within a year he upgrade his camera to D200, than get D2X once it launched.

    he says so he don't have to upgrade his camera again.

    maybe it is good idea for you go for D4 straight away, so you don't have to waste any time and money somewhere in between.













    PS, upgrading gears ≠ improving your skills.

    and without improving your skills, even the most awesome cameras and lenses will become white elephants one day.

    Haha I also wish that that's the case but people are constantly tempted to upgrade. A D3s user might say that he will not upgrade again one year ago but now that the D4 is out, who knows? Its true that the photographer will affect the outcome of the picture more than the gears, make sure you can push the limits of your equipment.

    I also upgraded from D5000 to D7000 and I like it very much!

    But if you are loaded, can you always go for better models.

    I'm sure there are a lot of people who are going to disagree with you, as the Pentax K5 has a same sensor, but is cheaper than the D7000. spree I swear I didn't see your post 5 minutes ago.

    Haha same thoughts, plus, the K-5 is full magnesium alloy, VS D7000 which is only half.

    I 'upgrade' from D5000 to D300. A pre-owned D90 is just a hundred or 2 cheaper than the D300!

    I think a pre-owned D300 should be around $900 now against $1.3 for a D7000 (body). Personally I still think the D300 is a better deal. I like the control buttons on the D300 and the feel of the camera. It don't have that plastic feel.

    I would suggest you test both before deciding. Of course that is if you are considering only Nikon.

    Not to mention the k5 is smaller, has in-body image-stabilisation & arguably better weather sealing.

    Although to be fair the D7000 has more AF points, AF during video recording & has dual memory card slots.
