Good luck with recovery. I had a similar adventure back in the early 80's on an ATC 200x, 3-wheeler. Woke up in the hospital with an 8" long screw drilled into my clavicle. Never saw my 200x again. The buddy I was with sold it for me before I recovered.
If I did that now, it would break every bone in my body. I was 19 or 20 back then - young & dumb.
Please keep us posted on your work & progress with the D6. From all I've read & seen, it's a beast.
Have you seen the Steve Perry review? I believe him, as he's always been pretty matter of fact. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JICmY3s-ZkM
I have seen it and he's spot on! I feel the D5 could have all the customization features the D6 has with a firmware upgrade, but the AF on the D6 is simply remarkable. I've found it much better with the fast primes like the 58, 85 etc. My D5 was good with those lenses, but didn't have the consistent hit rate and accuracy the D6 does, especially when tracking. I like to shoot action with those lenses and the D6 is nothing short of stellar. It's noticeable right away. With the fast 2.8 zooms and high end super teles, both cameras I feel are are nearly identical with the D6 having slightly better low contrast focus acquisition. I probably wouldn't have upgraded but my D5 had a few hundred thousand clicks on it and I got a good trade in value, so I did it. Looking back, I'd do it again without hesitation.
