    I presently shoot with a D7000 and would like o make the plunge to full frame. I really like how the D7000 has both front and back dials for the shutter speed and aperture, and like that I don't have to dig to change the ISO or set my white balance. I have no idea which full frame to get and am open to suggestions. I shoot primarily newborns in a relatively small space, and use both natural light and of camera flash. Thanks you!

    The D600 would be an easy transition... it's basically the D7000 that went through puberty.

    D600 would be my call also, unless you want to go D800!

    Thank you-

    What would be the advantage or drawbacks of one over the other? (I've been googling and trying to read comparisons, but hearing firsthand/personal feedback is always helpful as well).

    I think the D700 is a PHENOMENAL camera and due to all the "new" full frames you can probably get it for a song.

    If I were you I would consider it :)

    I'm assuming you mean, "What does FX offer that DX doesn't?".

    Well, for starters, a whole lot more options with lenses. The Nikon F mount was introduced in 1959. The DX-format is a relatively newborn into the F-mount family. So the vast majority of glass out there will work on an FX body. The DX format lenses are all electronic, so old lens on DX bodies won't always work. And once you get into ultra-wide lenses, DX options are mighty thin.

    Body focus motors. FX bodies have them. Some DX bodies don't. So some AF lenses just won't AF on them.

    FX also has much better noise control in the shadows of an image.
