Yep start with the lenses as those are the "eyes" of the camera. Oh darn. Most of the Nikon lenses are out of stock!
I strongly believe that any aspiring professional photographer starting out should look to lenses FIRST than bodies when looking. Bodies represent technology so we'd be always talking about them and whats the latest. For the FL i am most interested in: general purpose - 24-105 (and the new 24-70II), Macro - 100mmf2.8L IS, General Zoom 70-200 F2.8II, Birding/nature and Sports 400, 500 and 600 IIs, Portraits and other low light F1.2 50mm and 85mm Canon RULES the competition unquestionably!! For Wide and Fish Eye apps like landscape etc, Nikon may be better. But in the vast majority of applications Nikon does not measure up, Especially the 70-200 and the telephotos, the Canadian wedding photographers really showed the superiority of canon in this area and I really love this lens it shines, and i think most of you with the F4 version really haven't a clue what your missing. This is more important than a body that will change next year.
