Hey guys I am after some advice on upgrading my camera and having saved up since the D90 came out I am now well placed to make that move. Better dynamic range and image quality is the main driver for the upgrade, I don't intend to upgrade for a long time after this so the balance of 'used kit vs the most current' is hard for me to decide.
I currently own a Nikon D90 and have the following lenses:
For me this is a very active hobby and I mainly shoot wildlife, general street photography/travel and increasingly nighttime /low light photography. Wildlife is my emerging favourite along with night shots (light painting/star trails)
So the options within my budget:
1. Go FX:
a) buy the Nikon d750 as the step into full frame knowing I need to buy a wide angle fx lens. I think my telephoto and 50mm gives me the other range needed.
b) buy a used d800. (I think this might be over kill given its pixels!) but might work out cheaper than a d750).
c) buy a used d700 as a dip into the FX world but this is outdated so not sure it will achieve what I need.
2. Stay DX.
a) wait for the d7200 (effectively same spec as the d750 but dx)
b) buy a used d7100.
The issue for me is I am travelling for the month of April to indo China. Therefore this is a driver in my wanting to upgrade now.
Any thoughts, experience or considerations would be greatly appreciated. I am leaning towards the d750 as the d7200 isn't out until the end of the month, when I will need to have a new camera, and having had time to have played with it.
