will D600 be a good camera for me
Sep 27, 2012

I shoot just about anything from: my travels to third world countries, my six year old son playing sports, landscapes, and a smattering of other things...pretty much anything but macro.

I have a D7000 with lenses that pair up with that camera: the kit lens, 35 DX, 85 f/1.8D, 80-200 f/2.8, tokina 11-16. I am happy with the camera.

What will the real benefits of a FX camera be? Obviously, a bigger sensor is nice, but if I don't shoot above ISO 1600 much, what use will the bigger sensor have? The large viewfinder will be a nice addition as well, but I am not overly enthusaistic about getting a new camera merely for that.

The other reason I would like the FX would be to get the 14-24 f/2.8....I have a strong desire to get this lens, as I love my 11-16 f/2.8 but I really want the 14-24.

So, what do you think...what benefits will the FX give me than DX? FWIW, I strongly feel that DX is a dying pro system. Soccer moms and casual photographers who want top quality with some size, but at a low cost will get the D3200s and other things of the sort...I think DX will be squeezed on top by FX, and by mirrorless on the bottom.
