Re: I am not saying that FF is same as crop or worse

Well, that's not really true either. It all depends on what you shoot. In the studio or for landscapes, you really need to print big before the FX advantage becomes apparent. But for event shooting for instance, the low-light advantage of even a D700 with F/1.8 lenses makes a clear difference already. It's also important to remember that DX primes are few and far between, and odds are that you can't get equivalent DX primes even if you're willing to sacrifice equivalent aperture. You'll be hard pressed to find a replacement for a 85mm, or a 35mm. In many cases, a

35 mm on a FF = 24 mm on a crop
50 mm on a FF ~ 35 mm on a crop
85 mm on FF ~ 50 mm on a crop
135 mm of a ff = 85 mm on a crop
200 mm on a FF = 135 mm on a crop

FX body allows you to save money on lenses, as you don't have to buy so exotic lenses to get the same end-effect.

Please excuse me, but this is BS.

Standard f/2,8 crop-zoom costs 800 Euro (Canon 17-55),
Standard f/2,8 FF-zoom costs 1200 Euro (Canon 24-70) and new one - 2500 Euro.

Wide-angle zoom on a crop
Tokina 11-16 f/2,8 - 650 Euro
Canon 16-35 f/2,8 - 1400 Euro

Tele-zooms are the same, but FF people buy 1,4x or 2x converters, while with crop you can go "birding" as is.
