I have been a happy owner of a D90 (with a few lenses) for three years and I’m thinking of upgrading my equipment for landscape photography in the next 3 to 4 months… Two paths are possible in my range of revenu :
In DX format : buying a D7000 body and its 16 Mp sensor (now available new for $ 750) and the DX AF-S DX NIKKOR 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5G ED (for $ 830). Total cost of $ 1580. (or the future D7100, adding $ 400 or 500 more)
In FX format : buying a D600 body and its 24 Mp sensor (which should sell for about $ 1700 in a few months) and the AF-S NIKKOR 16-35mm f/4G ED VR (for $ 1140). Total cost of $ 2840.
Technically speaking (sensor and optic), and for lanscape photography, which is the best option, taking also in consideration the difference in price ?
Let there be light !
