Lot of other issues involved. FX lenses on DX camera are great because you're always in the middle of the lens. FX can't use any of your accumulated DX lenses in FX mode. I really can't think of any reason I'd choose an FX over a DX just to have an FX. More pixels crammed into the FX sensor are the only reason I'd consider the FX (super crop ability) and then if you don't mind stitching images a 24mp DX camera is going to have more pixels to work with than 36mp FX. If I hadn't owned a box or two of FX lenses I'd never have gone FX. As for the bigger the frame the more you capture, that's true for the same lens. I use a 16-35mm on FX to capture what I did with the 12-24 on DX. If I shot nothing but wildlife or macro, I'd be all over a DX camera with a lot of pixels. Of course the more pixels you have the more the more light you need (ISO performance suffers with high MP cameras). If the D7100 had been available when the d800e came out, I'd probably be shooting on of those (and still may).

One place an FX camera with a LOT of pixels (d800e) shines is in cropability. I can crop way down on the full frame 36mp picture and still have a great picture, can't do that on the 12mp d700 even though it is FX. FX with lots of pixels also has an ISO issue. To use that cropability, you have to keep ISO low. My D800E lives on ISO 100 and I will push it to 400 if there is simply no other way to get the shot but I won't expect much out of it.

Bottom line to me is it isn't just FX, It's FX and a lot of pixels to work with which leads to own set of issues. I never had much favor for my D700 but I love the D800E's pixels even if I do have to clean it monthly. I'd still like to try a D7100 just for fun though and see what if anything I really give up.

Thanks for all the info I AM NEW to this I always assumed the bigger the frame the more you capture. Which I thought was better that's why I wanted a full frame camera. But IF ya'll can tech me different I'm willing to learn PLEASE TEACH THE NEW GUY(me)
