Used D610/D3 or wait another year use F5 and develop Film digital
I have a Nikon D7100 which I use as my general go to camera for Butterflies, portraits and general photography. My general hobbies are candids when people aren't looking to get natural laughs and natural expressions. I have a pretty extensive prime lense line up, ever since I got an annual bonus while being posted in Japan and discovering the joy of scouring used lense shops.
The APS-C gives me a bit of longer lense distance (field of view, etc.) and so I can stand a bit of a distance making me being less noticed. I also bought - more for nostalgia an old F5. It is build like a rock and the 'Ka-Ching' of the shutter is just fun ! Really a lot of fun. I then develop the film with the 'digital option' and get a CD as well.
I am also super casual, like a proper hobby photograph. From time to time however I do wonder what it would be like to shoot with a full frame digital camera. I have a manual Zeiss 85mm 1.4, which I would just love to take to the field. I also really don't want to buy the same technology of my D7100, just with a different sensor.
From what I gathered from the other forums is that the D610 has a better sensor than the D700, that the D750/D800 is still better than the D610, but both are for my taste too expensive for the rare occasions (weddings...) where you have a lot of people/relatives around where it is possible then to really stand around and snipe snapshots.
Does anybody shoot (for holidays etc.) normally with a Dx setup but has a FX setup around for portrait etc. ? Is it true that on FX the colours are generally 'better' than on DX ? Or is it practically all the same.
And how do in terms of colour rendering these days compare Film digitised vs. e.g. a used D610 ?
