TOPIC: Which FX body to chose as my first.

Which FX body to chose as my first. 3 years 11 months ago #2576

Hello all, i have taken an interest in photography about 2 years back.
I currently own a D7000, Nikkor 50mm f1.4, Nikkor 105mm F2.8 macro VRII, Nikon 17-55 F2.8 DX and a sigma 70-200mm F2.8 OS.
And i am thinking it is time to switch to an FX body.
But i still can't decide should i take the D600 or the D800.
So i thought ill ask for your opinion.

Right of the bat at this time I can afford the D600, but if I hold back for a while I can save up for the D800.

Hi there, and welcome to the forum!

My first question for this is, why do you want to move to full frame. And what do you shoot?

Your current lenses will not all work on a full frame camera. So consider that.

If you want it, because you think its better, well, first try to get some quality glass. The 50mm is fine.. the rest is just, well, lets say consumer glass.

A Nikon D800 is a pro camera just right under the D4.

Try to put things together if you really need to upgrade from of your D7000. Are you grown out of it? Do u use if professionally?

I work daily as a professional photographer. I use in my studio pro gear. But for my personal weekend stuff, i use a Canon 60D.. which is not really a high end camera.

So.. :) Hope you take this to reconsider if you need it. And if so, you can take the step. And i would take the D800 because its just better :)

Greetings,
Roy

Roy is right, you will need to replace your 17-55, I highly suggest the 24-70 Nikkor. IMO the D600 is probably a great body for you. I highly doubt you will outgrow it anytime soon so use your $ towards the new d600 and replacement lens.
