So with the quote in for the repair on my D80, I now need to make a decision on what to do and one thought is to just buy a new body.
The money from isurance will cover most of what I want to do fortunately (I am pretty sure I dont have to get it repaired).
Do I buy a D7000 or D5200.
The 7000 has been around a little while now and a grey body is in the order of $700-$800. The 5200 is not out yet but will probably be a little higher in price.
The megapixle rating of the 5200 is higher than the 7000, but thats not a sighn of quality. Is the 7000 any better than the 5200 [expected to be]?
Mind you, I have D600 now, but the D80 was my wifes camera and although she is a point and shoot photographer, I should relly replace it. I will use it as a second camera from time to time as well.
Maybe the 3200 is a better choice, but I am not so sure on that one.
I am thinking of a 18-300 VRII lens as well, something that is a good alrounder for just about any occasion. The FX lenses I have obviously can be used if the need arises to get a better shot from teh DX body.
Any thoughts on the matter appreciated.
