Thanks. I'm hoping to pick up a D700 or D3 down the road, probably won't be for another year though.

Its more the fact that the inexperienced with expensive equipment tend to look down on the people with entry level bodies, even though I have a 70-200mm VR I attached to the D5000.

Possibly correlating to the fact you're getting better, more dramatic lighting and shadows as the day progresses?

I'll admit, one of my greatest photographic weaknesses is shooting candids later in the day, I always get weird shadows on peoples' faces and bodies -- something I really need to work on now that the weather is nicer.

I see your D5000 with 70-200mm VR and raise you a D60 with 70-200mm VR

I might be getting myself a 500mm, f7.1
but it depends on if the seller will respond to me or not

And then I need to find myself a Kenko 2x TC. Then I should probably buy myself a midrange.

I just considered that actually, lol.

Still no Sigma 10-20. I need it this week for work too. I'm not happy with this amazon seller. It took him 4 days to post and it's now the 9th day (7th working day).

Yeaup. Is it odd to say "I regret nothing"?

So far, I'm finding that this is the only lens I need Something tells me I should be needing more lenses, but in actual practice I'm perfectly happy with just my 28mm.

Odd, really.

Although I am thinking of renting a 70-200 f/2.8L for my family's vacation to Santa Barbara this summer, but again it'll be a rental since it's such a temporary thing.

Just buy and sell one. You'll lose much less than renting probably.
