Potentially upgrading to either a D700 (80%) or a A900 (20%) by December 08
Wow, excting plans Sean. Both some very nice camera's.
I wish I had the kind of cash to get the A900. I'd love to. Lenses, however, are more important for me at this moment. My wishlist:
- 70-200mm f/2.8 G SSM
- battery grip
- new laptop (for university)
- Zeiss 24-70mm f/2.8 SSM
- Zeiss 85mm f/1.4
- 100mm f/2.8 macro
And after that, a new body would be nice
Guess I should start buying tickets for the lottery again...

You should start the "BE Foundation" (Bjorn's Equipment Foundation), that might get you some cash
I'm almost 99% sure that the A700 will see a noticeably fine price decrease. It's current price, in my honest opinion, is not the most reasonable.
Taking the cash-back into account, pricing of the A700 in the Netherlands is almost exactly on par with Pentax K20D and Canon EOS 40D (meaning ~750 euro). D300 is a big step upwards in price. I'm not sure why this pricing is unreasonable.
I was referring to the price of the A700 here in the US. My apologies, I didn't realize that this cash-back, and the post was targeted in Europe.
