Christopher Price Posted May 15, 2016 Share Posted May 15, 2016 Anyone who shoots birds will not enjoy FF unless you have a 600mm or thereabouts lens. I shot birds with my 80-400 on everything from D70 to D7000 before going FF. Yes, you can crop. It just wasn't the same. You are not seeing the birds eye as closeup through a FF viewfinder. I hated it. Crop cameras are the way to go unless you can afford the really long lenses. IMHO. Hi Betty, I suspect that I have the same 80-400 and like the convenience of having it permanently attached to a second body. Likewise the image the DX viewfinder gives is a blessing to those who still use manual focusing. To tell the truth I haven't tried it on my D800 in DX mode so don't have a good feel for how that would work for me. But a used full frame is still likely to be out of my price range and I do like having a dedicated big lens camera. Thanks Chris Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
