First of all, thanks for sharing your thoughts. I am posting in this forum because it is the "entry level" (in terms of $) for FX bodies.

Let me be clear, I am going FX at some point in the (hope) not distant future. Not trying to offend anybody. I am just doing my due diligence .

Wondering what your thoughts are as to why somebody would/should "go FX" vs staying DX (assumes you already have DX gear). Would love to hear your pros/cons. Here's my short list (apparent "winner"in ()) add as you see fit.

Camera cost (DX)
Lens cost (DX)
Camera Size (DX)
Camera durability (FX)
Accessory cost (tripod/monopod, heads, filters) (DX?)
Lens Choices (FX)
Shots-per-battery (FX?, not so much with newer battery technology)
Burst speed (FX)
Look-like-a-pro factor (FX)
Mine's bigger than yours factor (body, sensor) (FX)

As you can tell from the last couple, I don't take myself very seriously

Please let me know if you are a Pro (get paid for your shots) or a hobbyist (no $) like me since that may "taint" your opinion LOL. Again, thanks for helping me justify what I'm going to do (anyway).
