It only makes sense to imagine what eight grand would buy if you thought this camera was all that important to you. so what can you get for $8000 today?

Here's what I would buy if I had that scratch...(All pricing is from B&H)

Pro Kit

D3 $4200
14-24 VR $1530
70-200 VR $1615
SB-900 $400
TOTAL $7745

Semi Pro Kit
D700 $2400
D700 Grip $240
12-24 VR $860
16-86 VR $540
70-300 VR $550
80-400 VR $1300
SB-800 $320
One-week trip to my favorite U.S. destination $1790
TOTAL $8000


What would you buy with your next $8000 of photobucks?

OK, I'm in. Here's how I would spend my $8,000 D300 $1260 D90 $880 SB900 2x $800 Nikon 80-400 VR $1300 Nikon TC 14E $400 Tamaron 17-50 $400 " 70-200 2.8 $620 Tokina 12-24 $500 MF 055xb w/468 head $470 Battery grips for both D's $370 Allowance for filters $500 " for batteries $200 " for memory $300 There I spent $8,000 for me more wisely than putting it all in one camera. This would nicely supplement my current collection and even allow me to hand down my D200 and S3 to family members. OD

Yeah... If I had 8k to burn... I would go for the 400/2.8 VR with a 1.4 converter and the 14-24. Opps, is that over 8k? Well... I guess I better be good for a few Christmas' ;-)

No Neil it does not get me from A to B since I don't have one at the moment. My Ford Transit builders truck went in for its MOT (Ministry of Transport annual Test) in June and was declared a scrapper due to chassis corrosion (vehicles body rot in the UK quicker than in your warmer dryer climates)! That is why I retired one month earlier than I originally intended. At the moment I don't even have a bicycle, so it's "shanks's pony" or the bus. A 1991 car would have had to be extremely well looked after and rust treated regularly to last in the UK since they rot from any internal sections outwards. However the interiors of our old vehicles don't deteriorate like those in hotter climates, and many are still almost like new when the vehicle is scrapped due to the body rusting.

With the car industry in the doldrums and new cars not selling, plus the upcoming recession, I am hoping to get a secondhand one next year when hopefully the dealers will pay me to take it off their forecourt! :lol: I could always buy a last years F1 GP Honda for a couple of Pounds I expect since even large companies are cutting down on expensive motor vehicles in advance of the recession.

http://news.bbc.co.u...ire/7766930.stm

I gather from the radio in the US they are now knocking tens of thousands of Dollars off a new top of the range Mercedes as they are piling up at the docks since the dealers no longer want them as they can't sell larger vehicles anymore? Secondhand vehicles will therefore also be going dirt cheap as new vehicle prices drop to clear them. Unfortunately it's the smaller vehicles that are holding their price since nobody wants large gas or diesel hungry vehicles anymore.

Only you could turn a discussion on DSLR bodies into a treatise on the automotive industry's impact on our way of life, Dave. You're just that good at it! What is relevant is that now there is a Nikon DSLR that easily equates to the price of a decent used car, so I am adding this selection as a substitute for a second body on the poll... ha! Mule

"If I spent that amount on a SP I sure wouldn't take it out of the box."

I think that's usually the idea Rass. Just like the old special edition lizard skin covered gold plated cameras, or century's old bottles of wine nobody dare open in case they taste like vinegar and are completely worthless, but are often stupidly bought as investments and locked away unused.

Me I buy things to use.

I watched my parents' pretty 70's model Ford Elite sedan experience rust perforation on the body during my youth in New Hampshire - a sad thing to see. Here in Tennessee a car can last your lifetime, though. We get tired of them before they die... that's sorta sad too. Mule

I purchased the D3x gently used (5k actuation's) $6400 shipped/insured, a lightly used 24-70 for $1250 and a TC 1.7 E II for $425 new then began the lens trade with my lenses on hand, couldn't be more pleased.

OMG, what a deal on that D3x. Where are the pics? You can't post this sort of stuff without proof. Congrats, Banjo.
