Looking to get your advice on my personal situation. I have a d7000 I have owned for several years but have only been shooting raw/ manual mode since last June. I've really been getting into photography and I'm interested in the lower light capabilities, faster and more accurate auto focus, full frame and more focus points. I'm on a limited budget and I have found a local d700 for $1400, 30,000 clicks. For lenses, I have the DX lenses - 18-105 and 35mm 1.8. I have some MF primes, 28, 50 1.4, 24-70, etc. It's likely that I would also be ordering a 50mm when I move to FX.
I do have some concerns about the lower megapixels as compared to the d7000... I'm not sure its an 'upgrade' in that sense. On the same token from the reading I have done the d800 can be overkill megapixel wise. My real hesitancy is that I'm trying to 'save money'.
Right now I am an enthusiast but I have considered doing this for some extra money in the coming year.
Curious if you think it is too soon for me to get a 2nd body? Perhaps I need to put in a year minimum before I make a move like this.
