#51. "RE: Help with Stepping Up To Full Frame fron D7000" In response to In response to 0
I been uncomfortable all week thinking about my original comment shown below so I'm going to change it now as I wasn't thinking about it neutrally:
>> I have the D4/D800E and based on what you describe, I think the D800 would be the better all-rounder fit. Isn't the D4 more of an extremes solver? I.e. lowest of the low light, fastest of the fast cameras, toughest of the tough >> The D800 really is a well balanced camera and takes gorgeous video too (of course the D4 does great video too, especially on the telephoto end with its CX video mode).
Here's my revised answer: - actually between the D4 and D800 it is the D4 that is the better all-rounder camera. I wasn't portraying this logically. The D4 can do a broader segment of needs well than a D800. That part is absolutely clear. It's just that it is double the price and weight. If you are willing to pay the financial and weight price, the D4 is, of course, a wonderful camera that is no muss no fuss at time of shooting and also in post.
Stan, not sure about all this protestant work ethic angst about going FX Here is my logical rebuttal: 1. Time is passing 2. Time is passing 3. Time is passing 4. Time is passing 5. Time is passing
The OP is a senior and his grandchildren are getting older every day. I would feel zero angst about going FX in this or many other situations. Was my own photography being held back by DX - YES ABSOLUTELY and Time is Passing
