Recently retired, have been shooting with D90 for the past 3 years. Looking to go to full frame, just sold my little sports car so I can go up to $5k. Want to stay with Nikon brand lenses for full frame- resale purpose.
I have the sigma 8-16 & 17-50(dx). Nikon lenses 35 f1.8, 18-105, 70-300VR(fx). I shoot everything with a lot of different camera clubs/meet-up groups and have 10 grandchildren aged 2 to 12. You can see some of my pictures at http://www.flickr.com/photos/52333300@N05/
My question is I enjoy my sigma 8-16, most shoots I go out with my 17-50 which is always on my camera and my 8-16. Plan to use my 8-16 in DX mode. How much quality would I lose with the 8-16 lens on a D600 and D800 as compared to my D90. Plan on also using my 70-300vr in dx mode to get the extra reach for kids sports.
I have printed up to 20x24 in metallic finish and would like to go bigger.
Looking to go with D800 and Nikon 24-70 f2.8. currently $200 off each at B&H.
PS: I enjoy post processing, have photoshop cs4. lightroom, topaz, photomatix and silver efex. will have to upgrade computer with either d600 or d800.
Will be in and out today so I apologize if I don't get back to you in a timely manner. Thank you. Mike
