Re: Perturbed by the Rudeness and Hostility on these Forums


Don't just decide to go with a D800 because a lot of people are moving from DX to FX and the D800 is probably the best FX DSLR out there.   FX isn't a natural 'upgrade path' from DX.  It's more of a different beast altogether, with different strengths and weaknesses.

This post makes a lot of sense.  To be honest, someone who has never owned an SLR before and has to ask "what lens should I buy" probably should not start out with a D800.  A D3200 kit would make more sense as a starter kit.  In a few years after you improve your skills and the D800 is old news you can sell your D3200 and upgrade to the D900e.

This post was not meant to be rude or hostile.  There is nothing wrong with a D3200.  Is there something you will not be able to do with a D3200 or a D5200?
