im a long time shooter, but not a pro. I currently have a D200 and DX 18-200 lens. My camera really suffers in low light situations, either live concert/club shooting, or in low light interior shots (weddings). I see some amazing low light shots now where the colors and sensitivity are amazing!
What will be my best option for low light???? upgrading to a newer camera (D7100) with a way better sensor or buying a better lens ( DX17-55 f2.8)???
I have a feeling it will be a newer sensor... that D200 is from 2005! A new lens will only offer me one or two fstops better right?
or is it because im shooting jpg and not processing from the raw files? is THAT how i get photos that have remarkable detail and lighting?
IM about to invest in some new gear, but im not a pro so i cant buy whatever i want. I was even contemplating the FX vs DX format... but thats not an issue if i can get the photos i want.
thanks for the input in advance
