Re: The real advantage of Full Frame.

The clamor you hear for FF is a mistake and will hurt the wildlife shooter on a budget. It means a future of heavy, large, expensive lenses to get him good reach. Noise can be solved in other ways, using technology.

The desire of those unwilling to change, unwilling to accept that their wide angle lenses aren't as wide as they should be by their preconceived notions, will hurt others if Nikon goes FF on all their better cameras.

Wildlife shooters, on a budget can get some decent reach with a 300mm f4 lens and maybe a tc, but loose reach with FF and are forced to buy heavy and expensive lenses requiring tripods - to hold the weight.

We are at a crossroads and I hope we make the right choice. This FF is really hyped up as a great thing. But wouldn't you rather carry a 300mm f4 VR (when it comes out)for miles than a 500mm lens and heavy tripod.
