Re: FF vs DX

Right now there is an issue in that Nikon have brought out upgraded FX bodies before DX bodies. Maybe in three months the playing field will be more level.

When the choice was mainly 12MP for either format results were usually close to indistinguishable to about 1600 ISO when making a 20 inch wide print.

Part off topic I am producing some good 20 inch wide prints from the much smaller format P7700. On close inspection although they are not the equal of the D800 they are more than good enough for many purposes.

A lot depends on the end use, your photographic needs, and your budget. Nikon give you choices. Nikon customers choose about 4 Coolpix to about each DX body, and about 9 DX bodies to each FX body.

Many problems turn out to be a lack of intimate knowledge of complex modern camera equipment.
