Re: DX to FX

Here's my take on it:

I went from a D300 to a D800.  I wasn't sure what to expect, but the low-light quality of the newer camera is huge over the d300.  In fact, I would say tha almost any newer prosumer or higher camera will have much better low-light capabilities than the d300.

Low ISO & daylight pictures, I'm not sure if there is a huge visible difference at regular print sizes.

What I think you will notice though, is that you effectively get much wider with an FX camera than with the d300.  The lenses are more expensive, but I can see how for architectural shots, this could be quite useful.
