Cool, Loren. Congratulations on your coming graduation, and good luck in the job market!
In your case, I'd honestly keep the D7000 for now. It should be good enough for your internship needs, and I really don't think you'll get more out of a D600 than a stop or two better high ISO performance. As seen in this thread, this can be important, but some will say that people make too much of it.
If you're looking to do photojournalism, IMO the Nikon camera you should be lusting for is the D4. From what little I know of that...Show more →
Thanks Marc! Yeah the D7000 is a capable camera for sure. I agree that the ISO improvement of going to the D600 isn't reason to make the switch on its own. I shoot a lot of night tight-quarters night stuff where a 24mm F1.4 on an FX sensor would beat the hell out of the 2.8 I am stuck with on my (loved) Tokina 11-16, but I can limp through. The other draw of DX is that I would go from a 6 lens kit to a 4 lens kit though to cover most of the same stuff. Instead of having 11-16/2.8, 17-55/2.8, 70-200/2.8, 24/1.4, 50/1.4, 85/1.4 I could downsize to 17-35/2.8, 70-200/2.8, 24/1.4, and 85/1.4 and cover pretty much all those same focal lengths at the same apertures. (I sprung for the 24/1.4 because it was a rare deal but if I do stick with DX it will likely make sense to use the Sigma 30/1.4 instead based on the price difference)
You're a bad influence to even mention the D4 though! Ha maybe if I end up with a dream job where I am provided a D4...but the price tag is pretty crazy.
happy shooting -Loren
