desvenne, the options you list are very uneven. The middle option, while attractive, leaves you still without a FX 35. Option 3 leaves you with two systems. Does that work for what you want to do, or would you always wonder which one to bring, or miss the one you left at home?
carstenw, you're right that the options as listed are a bit uneven. Logically, I'd only upgrade to the D800 after getting the 35mm f1.4 lens (or get both together, depending if there is a nikon rebate going on). I've been stalling getting the nikon 35, also want to see the sigma 35 real life examples for instance. Again, logically, 34 AFS + D800 as an upgrade has a lot going for it, it's a very easy and nice transition from the D700 I have now. I'm just wondering if, instead of upgrading, I'd add the RX1 to my existing kit, and use it together with the D700 and/or Nex. The RX1 + accessories (EVF, case, hood, extra battery, external charger) woud be a great complement to a DSLR I think.
Having two systems is not a problem, I'm using the D700 with a nex 5N now. And I'm either bringing both, or one specifically for what I want to do (like the D700 for concerts & product shoots, the nex for walkaround, both for around the house & the kids). As much as I like the nex 5N, the D700 just produces nicer pictures ime and imho. I'm hoping the RX1 will provide even better image quality than the D700, we'll soon see when users get their copies in hands.
Honestly, someone should just bring out a small full frame interchangeable lens camera (the rumored nex 9?), with AF (the AF rules out Leica, however much I like the cameras & lenses).
