From Canon to Nikon D610...

I switched from  a  Canon APS 450D, 17-55 f2.8 IS, 70-200  f4 IS, 100f2, to a Nikon D610 with 28 f1.8, 50 f1.8, 70-200f4 VR and a Tamron 24-70 f2.8 VC (which will go back to the dealer).

It took me a while until I was ready to switch the system, I tried different FF Canon and finally decided for Nikon, because of the superb image quality of the D610 (24 MPix is enough for me).  D610 is simply outstanding .  A friend has a Canon 5D MkII and it was not a  big improvement in image quality compared to a good APS-C camera. The Nikon has much better resolution, than Canon APSC, better dynamic range (visible), a very good user Interface and a build in flash, that I like a lot if I have bad light and want to shoot my children or use it as a fill light. I do not understand why Canon is producing high Price FF cameras without flash.

For more than 2 years I was not ready to switch to FF , but this D610 makes the difference and I am really happy that I did it.

The Nikon lenses 50 f1.8, 28 f1.8 and the  70-200f4VR are very good  (also border sharpness) , but the 'Tamron is not that good. I am not pixel peeping, but with 1:2 magnification you can already see the difffernce in IQ.

The question is, if I really need a zoom - maybe the primes are fine.
