    If you are going to buy a second body surely its for redundancy. So why then are you looking at a body that uses a different battery and different card format? That is plain stupid IMO.
    If you want a second body, which I actually see no reason for any amateur photographer to have anyway at least buy something that uses that same battery and cards so you can reduce the number of different items you need overall.

    One of the reasons I liked going to the D7100 is that the batteries are the same. Always have a spare no matter which body. At least until I sell the D7k. (13k+ shutter activations since last June.)
    Can't upload pics either (had a butterfly shot but it wouldn't upload )

    I picked one up a few weeks ago also and agree. Great images!

    I'm already working with two different power and memory systems (D70 & D7000). Works great! Not a problem. Just 1 extra battery for the D70 covers it. The 16GB CF and 2-16GB SD cards, are already in the cameras.

    Changing lenses on-the-fly can sometimes be a personal challenge. For the same reason I prefer VR lenses. 2 setups help me reduce the chance of dropped lenses. What works for you, may not work for me.

    Even for an amateur a second body has benefits. It was great in Alaska to have a wide/normal zoom on the older body and a long tele on the newer one to get the better ISO benefits. You never knew when shooting a nice scenic landscape if a moose or eagle was going to wander into the area.

    I'm currently lugging the D300 with 70-200 and D800 with 244-70 across the USA and I'm enjoying not changing lenses. I like the wide spread of focus points on the D300 with the tele more than I miss the massive resolving power.

    You're a cruel man Rooz, I was going to buy a 35 for my trip but didn't like the reviews of the Nikkor on FF.

    really ? I haven't read a bad review yet. according to dxo the sigma is a benchmark performer.

    Similar reviews and ratings on Photozone. Quite the lens, especially for the price.

    As for uploading...

    Looks like the upload software is working, but not connected to the archiver/attach-display module. K1's shots show up when attached to another server and I can manually load images prior to K1's "Snowing Leaves" shot.

    Should be fixable.
