As a D800E owner, I would recommend it wholeheartedly. Or the D800/810. If you want all the control you'd ever want in a body that will last you a good long while, that's it. The moire is really not an issue, as the few instances it does come up, it's easily corrected in software. You do need to pair it with good glass however. As someone who never really saw a huge difference between good and mediocre glass on lesser bodies, I definitely notice it on the D800. Fortunately, that doesn't always mean buying the latest and greatest lenses. Check out DxO mark to see what pairs best with the focal lengths and budget you have to work with.

You can get the D610 and get glass with the money you save, D810/800 will have the best IQ and will be a body of Pro quality (i.e full magnesium body with better sealing and more buttons and knobs, better finder etc) I would also want to wait out a bit because the successor to the d810 is about to come out pretty soon, I'm guessing its going to use sony's new 42mp sensor that's found in the A99mk2

As someone who owns a D810 and D610 (as backup), the D750 is absolutely worth the additional cost over the D610 if for nothing else than competent autofocus in anything other than daylight. And probably being able to map the top-plate record button to ISO, that's something that's a bit of a niggle for me because switching bodies is more of a mental workout than it should be. If you're considering doing weddings, all I can say is that it's tough with one body, and I would seriously take a look at what you're looking to achieve by moving to FX. Nobody will take you more seriously based on what camera you're holding, only by what output they're presented with.

. The D800E is the chunkiest of the bunch, also one of the oldest and slowest in terms of frames per second. It doesn't have an AA filter, so you might find it is slightly sharper than the rest - though also more prone to moiré (not sure if this might be a drawback, considering you'll shoot mostly people).

Both the D800 and the D800E also shoot at 36mp vs 24 on the rest - which might again be something desirable.

On the other hand they're also considerably heavier than the 750 and especially the 610.


It's more a matter of what features you value the most and then going with the one that fits your needs.

What price you can get them at also may play a big role.

thank you for your reply, i have already bought the d800 used, it is a really good option, i know that it has 4 fps but it rocks for me, indeed d800e it has no AA and it is more sharp, so i ll buy a 1.8 lens, maybe the 50mm

now i have a lens for a couple of weeks till i buy one new, i have now the 70-210 f4 nikon

d810 is like the yamato ship tooooo powerful (doesnt matter that it hasnt the 4k ability) i love this camera and the nikon series d800, d8003,d810,d810a

d750 is nice but i prefer the d810

d500 is what you need for 4k and sports, it is an option if you are shooting mostly wildlife and sports smile.gif

2. Doing pro work you'll likely want 2 bodies (main and backup), Budget accordingly

3. What does your 3200 lack for you right now as a photographer


1. i have given all my gear, dslr, lenses, filters everything and i bought a used d800 and i too happy, way much happy with her

2. later i ll buy, a d700 or a d7100 - 7200 as a second body OR a second shooter

3. my d3200 i have pushed her to the limit, it was a nice camera, i surelt pick her if i ll go to a safari with a big guns lens 150-600 or so

if youre doing FF because its just sounds awesome and you think you need it then i would invest in glass and upgrade to a more workhorse DX body.

either way you are going to struggle if you want to assist on weddings with a D3200. you can second shoot weddings technically with no problem on a D3200, a nicer faster camera makes it easier but not required.


i ll play as a second shooter on weddings or just shooting portraits in a photoshop (post processing etc)



what lenses do you have? id be willing to wager you have room to upgrade your kit in that category if your main work is as a second shooter you dont need the fanciest camera. cameras have a pretty loing shelf life but lenses last WAY longer. i would upgrade to FF/pro bodies when you are primary shooting gigs on the regular. as an assistant and second shooter you have no real need to upgrade camera bodies


in case that i dont have a work in a photoshop i ll have a good camera for nature/sports/wildlife/outdoors photoshooting,

indeed d800e it is more sharp than d800, this you can make it work the same (almost) with the d800 while buying a good 1.8 lens, now i ll buy either a 50mm 1.8 lens or someone like 2.8 tamron 24-70 2.8, etc used ofcourse...


thank you all for your advices and for your time biggrin.gif
