I upgraded to a Nikon D600 about a year or so ago, and also a couple of FX lenses (about $3500 total as I recall). Why would you upgrade and stay with a DX format camera? I get great results---and RP accepts virtually all my shitty images.

The Nikon vs. Canon stuff is silly. It's a lot like Ford and Chevy. They're both cars---and that's about it. Why not get a Hasselblad H4D ($45,000---batteries not included)?

Hi Ron,

One advantage of keeping a DX body in the bag is "reach". When I stick the 70-200mm FX lens on a DX body, I effectively have a 105-300mm on there.

Something to be considered.

That's an excellent point. I still have my D200 so I'll try it out. I also have a 300mm, so that would really ramp it up. I could shoot roster shots in Barstow from my porch here in Big Stone Gap (although I would need some special optics to reach over the curvature of the earth about every 30 miles...).

It seems to be getting good reviews (7100) I do shoot mostly in the day or people with a flash, so I might be good until I can afford one of those D4's.
If you want to do HDR, stick with the Canon and do your HDR in Photoshop. Instead of investing money in a new body (and new glass to boot), do yourself a favor and buy yourself some L glass. Check out KEH.com for a decent deal on some used L lenses. You won't regret it.
