Average User: Richard and others: I like the article and also many of the comments. I think you were giving advice to relative new comers, to try to choose rather early, the system they want to go with, and then try to maximize that system. You were saying that the upgrade path doesn't really work well in many cases because ff lenses aren't as good a choice for dx systems, as dx lenses, and visa versa. From an economic perspective, it is good advice. But the commentary shows that the "upgrade path" is not nearly as linear as an orderly mind might conceive it. Rather it is more like a meandering path defined as we go along, by the unique specific needs and our "discoveries" as we learn. It's part of what makes phtography such a great hobby. There's just no end to what we can learn about how to get better. When I was trying to decide on direction, I finally put together two "idealized" packages: one ff and one dx. By way of example here they are
Yo can use tour Tokina 11-16 @ 16mm in a FF with no mechanical vignheting. Just like 11mm on Dx. So you wont need a new UW angle with a new FX.
