FX is wonderful. On the other hand, so are the latest technology big-pixel DX cameras.
If I did mostly telephoto work, I'd go with the DX.
Mostly wide-angle, the FX
but there are lenses to solve the FX and DX problems, if you care to do so.
In my case, I ended up with a Sigma 10-20mm for the DX format, and a Sigma 15-30mm for the FX camera.
Full disclosure: I now shoot mostly Canons for digital, but the principle is the same.
I am considering an upgrade of my Nikon equipment from an F and Nikkormat EL to a Nikon F2, if that makes my presumption any more tolerable. Sometimes we just have to move on to keep up with the times. ;)
