I am still confused about upgrading from my D200 for bird photography -- my longest lens is the Nikon 300mm f/4 and have the TC17e II -- so, the question remains -- DX or FX -- say, the D600 or the D7100.
D600 or D7100????
Interesting thought – same lens, same subject, from D600 and from D7100 – both cameras have the same megapixels – but D600 is FX while D7100 is DX – so, the image on the FX sensor will be smaller than on the DX – we crop both so that the image will be 8x10 – the FX had to be downsized more than the DX to get to that size – therefore, since both cameras had the same megapixels, the DX would have better IQ – since it didn’t have to be “downsized” as much???

Am I correct? If yes, then the D7100 would be the choice for ME????
