Thanks Scott, Leighton, and Ray.
I just learned this morning that DX is just a crop of FX. I had no idea
However, I also learned that DOF in FX is narrower so you get better isolation. This is a big factor for me so I will still pursuing FX once uncle Sam is happy.

I think full frame made sense for you. I can see how it helps with portrait and landscape. I considered the D600 but several things held me back. Price, 1/4000 top speed and losing the extra reach. I am more of a wildlife, flowers and landscape photographer. I can count on one thing every three years I want a new camera. I am just happy that Nikon is keeping up with quality in it's DX line!

Although the DOF is narrower in a FX you can get great isolation with DX. To me the extra reach is worth the trade off. This is using the 180 2.8 AI

Look what I got from Reagan in the mail today, the 28mm f2.8 AI-s. It was a deal I couldn't refuse.

Thanks Reagan!

I have used that lens and it is a beauty. I guess your 24mm will be for sale soon? Congrats Leighton!

You're right, it is a beauty. I may keep my 24mm unless you want it, I'll sell it to you for what I bought it off Brad for.

I am going to sell my 28-50mm f3.5 AI-s though. If anyone is interested PM me before it goes on the B&S board.

I bought my 24mm AIS off of John when I first got my D7000 but thank you GLWS

Check this thread out. http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1191862

I wasn't sure about the "reach" but based on what they are explaining, "reach" is a cropped of FX. So I can just shoot in FX and crop it manually to get the "reach" in DX. No loss to IQ.

...but, it seems like the D7100 is offering more with another layer of crop factor.

Chuong, On the D7100 a 300 mm lens would give the same Field Of View as a 450mm lens would on a D600.
If you employ the 1.3 extra crop value on the D7100 the 300mm would have the equivalent FOV of a 600mm lens However the MP would be reduced to 15.2 MP instead of 24 MP. You are correct that you could crop this after in post but with the D7100 you can see what you are getting in the camera. Clear as mud?
If you crop the image of the D600 to equal the 450mm FOV of the D7100 The IQ would theoretically be better on the D7100 because you would be cropping away many MP's of information from the 24 MP D600
I usually end up cropping most of my images so I prefer the extra reach of the D7100

Well my excitement was short lived. My 50-135 is going back. The first ever lens I have returned to a seller on Ebay. Normally I don't get wound up about the small stuff but this time something got into me. It was described as mint condition and perfectly working condition. It was a buy it now with a make an offer. I based the offer on condition described and they accepted. The first thing I noticed on the invoice.(it is a camera shop) 50-135 AI-S, Dust. Ok no big deal a few bits and pieces under the front area but that word dust was never mentioned in the listing. As it had been in the UPS truck all day it was freezing cold. The zoom seemed a little loose but not bad. Well when it sat in my house a couple days and I picked it up it does the Fosberry flop. Tilt the camera and away it goes. I know- a minor pain in the arse but nevertheless these lenses are not hard to find and if you get a good one that is not loose chances are it has been fixed or at this age it never will get loose. Loose flopping zooms drive me nuts so back it goes. I guess I am being too picky.

Speaking of Philippe, where is he and Georg. Did parts of Europe lose power?

Leighton, first you switch from the D7000 to FX-land, and now selling the 28-50! Somehow the axis of the earth just shifted a bit.

It does feel a little strange at the moment! I like the 28-50mm, it's sharp and has good contrast. The only thing I didn't like about it was that you couldn't get close enough at 28mm. I like being able to get real close in to something at that wide of FL. Even the 28mm f2.8 AI won't get as close as the AI-s version. And since I now have the 28/2.8 and a 50mm f/1.2, not to mention the 55mm f2.8, I feel I can let the 28-50mm go and not be missing anything.

+1 to everything you said here. The 28-50 is very versatile, especially when you want to minimize lens changes in the field, but the 28 2.8 ais is sharper and focuses closer. It is always a tough decision which to carry, the 28-50, or the 28 2.8 and a 50 or 55. Now throw the 50-135 into the mix and it really gets confusing! Not bad problems to have.
