In Topic: Which camera best for me?

Yesterday, 07:54 AM

In your situation, I would go with the D500. Remember that you will need to budget for lenses as well for the upgrade to give you the most benefit. The D500 is just as demanding as the D850 as the sensor pitch is the same.

 

Do not forget to get fast memory cards from the start as you will need them.

 

If you plan to shoot much aviation, especially prop aircraft, get a grip for whichever camera you get. Panning is much easier when the camera grip gets a bit taller.

In Topic: Is my lense fx/Dx or DX only

The only AF-S 70-300 is the VR one that Adam linked to. It was made between August 2006 and July 2017. It is a very good lens that holds up well on modern sensors even though 12 MP DX was high resolution when it was introduced. It is FX

The life expectancy is 150000 actuations. Mine worked until a bit over 182000 when something gave up and I had it replaced.
