Re: FF vs DX

I have a D90 and have added a D600 just prior to Christmas. So far have only shot around 200 pictures (mainly family etc) due to the time of year and other priorities.

Straight 'out of the box' the D600 image IQ is far better than the D90. Improved detail, much lower noise, better DR etc.

Caveat is that most of these images were shot with my Zeiss 35mm F2 lens.

Second caveat is that I have only invested in FX lenses for the last 7 years or so, so the migration wasn't that painful on the pocket.

Now I'm back in my expat flat I'll have more time to evaluate the 2 cameras one on one. However I can't see the D90 coming close. Frankly I'm really impressed with the D600 IQ.

If you can rent a D600 then give it a try. I think you'll find it's a worthwhile exercise.

Otherwise, there's a lot of excellent advice above and it's a matter of 'horses for courses'.
