D810 as D7000 Replacement?
1

My D7000 is being borrowed on a more or less permanent basis by my son. The only cameras I have constant access to are my iPhone 11 and a handful of Nikon 1 bodies. I would like to have a camera with a larger sensor than what the iPhone 11 and Nikon 1 cameras have to offer. I have toyed with the idea of getting a current DX DSLR, such as the D7500 or D500 (for high-powered shooting performance). I do like to take photographs of birds. But I would also like to get a body with an FX sensor so that I have another tool in the box to use as needed. I figured that the D810 in DX crop mode could perform the role of a D7000 for times when that makes sense. (I like cameras that can perform multiple roles.) Used D810 bodies are available in my area at reasonable prices right now; hence my interest. Does it make sense to consider getting a D810 at this time as a D7000 replacement that can also provide FX coverage?
