I'm currently using a D5000, with an assortment of lenses, all of which meet my modest needs very well. Since the most challenging thing I do is shoot pictures for my son's Acrobatic Gymnastics team, I had planned to upgrade my camera to the D300s successor this year. I've considered the D7000, but quite honestly, I want the autofocus capabilities of the D300s and I can wait to see if the next model offers what I need. Since Nikon's production of new cameras seems to be on hold, I'm thinking about other options to put on my Christmas list. I rarely use flash, but have an SB-600 for the occasional indoor family picture. I'm thinking that I might add an SB-700 because it will work as a commander (hope I got that right) on my camera. Then I can start playing with off-camera flash. I took a group picture of my husband's family last night with my SB-600 on-camera and bounced off the ceiling. It worked fine for them, but it might be nice to have some lighting options for family pictures. I've also thought about upgrading my gymnastics lens, currently the non-OS Sigma 70-200/2.8. (It has served me very well.) I could buy the Nikon, but I might save some money and get the OS version of the Sigma. I don't have a 24-70/2.8, but I'm not sure how useful that would be for gymnastics. If I need something shorter (which is rare), I use my Nikon 50/1.4. And I'm thinking that when I buy a new camera, Nikon will probably offer a rebate on a camera + lens so if I'm going to upgrade to a Nikon lens I probably want to wait for that option. Any suggestions?
