I’m looking to update my camera/gear. I have a d80 with a 18-135 and a 70-300 lens, and a Sony a5000.

I’m looking at the z50, z5, or a used z6. Other brands are a possibility, but I already have some Nikon gear. I’m leaning on going full frame for low light performance, better dynamic range, etc.

What is your budget? If you want to go FF route, I would probably buy Z5 with 24-200mm. In this case it's a question if keep 70-300 (which version you have?). Other gear is for sell.

My question is will ff give me more versatility in post processing? I shoot raw and love to push things in editing. I’m not sure how much difference the jump to ff would make if any.

You can see difference in both going to new sensor technology and going to fullframe. You can check dynamic range of various cameras here:

It affect also mentioned versatily in PP.

Any thoughts on this or camera suggestions are appreciated. Thanks.
