Moving into full-frame

Thu Dec 21, 2017 9:12 pm

Hello all!

After some years on DX format, I am thinking of upgrading to full frame, with a bugdet less than $2500

The options I am considering are the D610 or D750 with a 28-300 lens either the Nikon or the Tamron.

My main concern is the performance of the lenses especially in the 200-300 range, under the scope of uploading to a.net.

My other concern are if the small differences in some specs of D750 (fps, buffer, ISO) will make a noticable difference.

I will be also open to any other solution you may have in mind!

Merry Christmas!!!!!

Someone I know has the 28-300 Nikon lens and does alright with it.

Go the camera with the better ISO, that will be really helpful. I've used FX format cameras for a long time since the D700 and D3s.

Don't factor A.net into your decision. Both the hobby and good images are bigger than A.net. Shoot to your criteria, not A.net's.

For aviation I would rather go D7200 with 2 good lenses before going FX with a superzoom. And while the Nikon 28-300 is decent it only makes sense to make an existing FX set-up versatile, but not as the lens to use when you switch.

Thank all for your answers!

@seahawk. I totally agree with you, I already own a D7200 with 18-105 70-300. Probably one of the best DX set-ups.
But since I moved and left the camera behind to my family, I am not like getting the same thing again.

Deal was finalized with a D750 and a Nikon 28-300.

This is the best advice here. If you photograph for a.net you'll end up taking a lot of bland (but very sharp, and correctly exposed) images
