Photography has primarily been a hobby for me, but lately I have had more requests to do weddings and portrait photography, so I decided I wanted to upgrade to Nikon d700 and then the D7000 is announced. Now I realize they are in different leagues FX vs DX, but one of my primary reasons for wanting the D700 is its amazing low light capabilities, which it would appear that I would get from the d7000. I have no interest in video, so this is not an advantage to me where as the price difference is because the $1,000 savings allows me extra money towards a new lens. I decided to join photo.net because I have been reading threads and there are so many people who seem to have a wealth of knowledge and I really need some advice. I really want the d700 but will the d7000 meet my needs at a lower price?
