Thank you for your helpful post. I definitely need to do a bit more homework on lenses.

Two points not yet mentioned.

A 50mm lens on a FF body behaves like a 50mm lens. The same 50mm lens on a crop body behaves like a 75mm lens on a FF body. All FF and crop body cameras will have this behavior. If you need really, really wide shots (say landscapes) then you really need FF. If you need super telephoto shots (say wildlife and sports) then you really need a crop body. For everything in between it's your personal choice.

Begin standard mantra...

Look not only at the lenses you need today but at the lenses you will need tomorrow. Nikon has more choices at the wide end of the range, say 50mm and less, while Canon offers more choices at the long end of the range (say, 100mm and more). Think long term.

End standard mantra...

Mike
