All of my photos so far have been taken on dx format. I have never really considered going full frame until I saw a used 12 megapixel Nikon D700 going at a really good price - cheap enough to buy and try out for a month and sell for a small profit if I decide it's not for me. When my CF memory card arrives I will be able to try it out. Of course I always research anything I buy and I know this is a very good camera. Update: After a week I swapped the D700 for another D7200. I prefer the twin card slots, sd cards and video of the D7200.
