have you tried renting a v1 70-200vr2 off lens rentals? could be what your looking for in a way cheaper package...
I've researched the crap out of that combo, especially since seeing some nice shots here but until Nikon wisens up and makes it a camera as a companion to their DSLR shooters instead of trying to make it a women's play toy I can't justify spending the cash on it, YET. I do see a V2 in my future replacing my P7000 after they do what they always do and listen to feedback and make a crazy amazing must have camera.
question: if your priorities are buffer, frame rate, then ISO and megapixels, why not a d300 or d300s? Used, they're cheap, can do 6fps, and 8 if you buy the grip and use AA batts. With my old 32gb 133x cards I can rattle off 20 shots before the buffer slows down. With the new 400x cards, I can double that.
ISO is respectable if you have solid clean light.
I think that would be the cheapest way to get a better buffer. Another thought: D3. Buffer is 16 images in 14 bit RAW, so I'd shoot it at CL and...Show more →
I bought my D7000 because to me it was better than a D300S which I had every intention on buying back then. But now that the D800 is out I have fallen in love with the detail and my FX trigger has been flipped. I want the FULL picture.
I did think about getting a D3 but if I were going with a D3 I'd want a D3S which is a bit more than a D800, right now so that's why the D800 is the camera for me. NOW if the D400 manages to slip out before I can get a D800 in my hands and it's a mini-D4 or not a 24MP DX monster, I might be swayed to that.
And of course if I get the D800 realize it's not for me I could probably re-sell it easy.
