The verdict has been on the wall for quite some time now. Most of you would rather adopt a wait-and-see attitude towards your next body purchase. The move to a full frame body would mean much sacrifices for those who so chose the FF body like the Nikon D700.
Personally, I have also voted for a look before you jump approach for the next body purchase. The economy is still not looking good around the world and could well be the reason behind our votes. Nevertheless, I must say we can't be too far off from whatever is coming on the horizon, knowing that the Nikon D90 belongs to the newer generation of design and manufacturing concept of Nikon. Notably, our bodies are the first of its kind in the history of Nikon to adopt the "L" firmware.
News has also been flying around that Nikon has spun off a new company with Fujitsu to primarily look at one thing - Nikon firmware. I strongly believe this will bring even more miles between Nikon owners and other camera makers.
Frankly, I was hoping for a new body but also realistically question if I do need one at this point of time. It's wiser to invest in new lens segment (I just did with the Nikkor 60mm F/2.8D!) or better lenses than in more advanced body.
Our balls are on the court of Nikon, so we say. It's her move to impress us all now.
