I'm after some opinions and thoughts on what you think would make a decent D90 replacement if I go down the road of converting it to IR. In terms of lenses, I've got:
Nikkor 18-105 DX kit lens
Sigma 10-20 DX
Nikkor 50mm F8 FX
Nikkor 70-300 (Is it FX or DX?! I thought FX but not sure....?)
I mainly shoot landscapes, although I'd be looking to use it for general shooting too, which might include airshows, but If Ihave to compromise, I have to compromise!
A year or so ago, the natural one-step-up upgrade path would obviously have been the D300 but the water seems particularly muddy now in terms of upgrade options! I'd considered looking at:
D7000 - Whilst an upgrade, I guess has been superceeded by the...
D7100 - which looks like it should be an excellent camera and a worthy upgrade, however the....
D600 - would give me much greater capability, and I'm curious about going to a full frame body, however I've read a number of comments about oil spots, which leads to the...
D800 - which I've read on here is an awesome camera, but I'm conscious that my current glass isn't really going to do it justice, and the body would wipe me out! On the other hand, I understand the DX crop mode still gives you a 16 megapixel image, which is still better than my D90!
I will be keeping my D90 as an IR conversion, so current lenses wouldn't immediately go to waste (although I would be upgrading over time I would imagine) but I would need to use my current crop of lenses on the new camera, at least in the short term.
So what are your thoughts?
