Re: Pixel vs Pixel FX vs DX

After reviewing the d600 image samples online vs the d7100  im struggling to see why you would choose a the FX over the DX in this comparison based purely on resolution only, putting lens options and noise aside. Am I the only one  thinking this this?   Im looking to upgrade from my D7000 for landscape, cityscape and wildlife photography and there are huge gains to be had from the samples i have seen from both these 24mp cams but  if a d7100 wasnt enough i wouldnt waste my time on the d600 and just get the d800  and be done with it.

Anyone else thinking the d600 is a waste of money? ( dont mean to offend any d600 owners)

At base ISO, I'd expect it to be a wash between the D7100 and D600, assuming the D7100 gets a magnificent lens that can deliver enough resolution to that 24 MP DX sensor (which would be over 50 MP if scaled to FF).

But the D600 will hold on to that resolution far better as you move up the ISO range. And at the highest sensitivities, the D600 gives a better chance of producing a usable image.
