That DR link is VERY cool.

The main thing you will experience with FX is that a particular focal length lens gives you a wider field of view than it did on a DX body. If you are used to using a 200mm lens on DX, you would need a 300mm lens on FX to get the same field of view you are used to.

Another thing is that your depth of field with FX will be a bit narrower for the same field of view.

An advantage to FX is that it has greater dynamic range. Here is a link to a chart showing DR in relation to ISO on different cameras. You can turn cameras on or off from the list on the right.

That's about it. It isn't earthshaking, and you may not see much improvement in your images just from switching formats.

Thank you for that link. What a great, information-dense way to compare cameras!
