Well it's good to know my logic wasn't flawed. I like the idea of picking up lenses and having a few to work with on a future upgrade! Now if I go to the city while in NJ might force a little side trip to B&H

One big reason to consider D600, despite everything is the sensor. If you have kids who do much performing in low light situations (theatre, dance, etc), the D600 is the way to go. You can really crank that ISO with minimal noise. I switched recently from the D90 to the D600, and the difference is remarkable.

I know that the expense of changing everything is daunting, but it's a real possibility that you will quickly wish you had bitten the bullet and gone for the D600.

I've owned a D50, D90, D7000, and D800. If you find yourself asking if you need an FX body then you really don't. A D7000 would be a substantial upgrade for the OP and her existing glass can be used with it.

You're not just seeing the difference between full frame and crop here though. You're also seeing the difference between a sensor designed for a 2008 model camera and one designed for a 2012 model camera. I'm not saying full frame doesn't have advantages, I'm just saying I think the technology jump also plays some part when you're talking about a difference of 4 model years in a time when sensor technology has been progressing rapidly.

And the op is moving from a ~2004 model. I had a D70, and I hated to shoot over ISO 400 with it. At 3200, the D7000 looks better than that. Don't get me wrong--I'd love to move up to the D600 as well, but the D7000 would still be a significant upgrade for the op. The D7000 is light years ahead of the D70 in low light.
