FF (Hate the Term) and APSC but I have not been happy with any of it, a Sony A77 and A850 were the last straw!

I was going to buy a Sony 850 as a backup for my Maxum 7D until I tried one. Even the reports said they were very noisy but I thought best to try for oneself.

Odd taht Sony make some fine sensors yet can't use them to best effect.

What Nikon did you try as I'm very happy with the kit I use.

As for Canon, I'd take up painting before I'd buy a Canon DSLR.

Sounds like you have had your fingers and wallet burnt.

Welcome back

Depends which period were talking about really, I've had over the last four years a D3 (too big) D700, lovely but underwhelming (Viewfinder irksome) D300s, lovely Camera, and latterly a 7000. Which needed a windscreen wiper to wipe the grease off the sensor that i flung fom the shutte mechanism after every days shooting. Nikon would not acknowledge the problem and told me it was dust and my fault!!!
Then they iced it by locking my Nikon Capture because I'd installed it too many times! (I have a Degree in Computer Science and spend a lot of time building my own PC's).
Been using Digital Nikon, pretty much since they came out and I know dust bunnies, anyway I got rid of it all and couldn't be more glad, never going back to them again, I'd sooner just hang up the shooting vest (Rant Ends)...

Sounds like you had one of the early D7000's with the oil issue for sure. Yes the D3 is a beast hence I went with a D700.

Thanks for the info as you have really made me happy. I have yet to have an issue with my own kit (famous last words)and I normally end up with the dogs.

As for the monies you've spent, well done that man! Hope you will find peace and contentment with your new kit.

D700 is a fine Camera, My only gripe as I said was the viewfinder but coming from a D3 to that one, you can probably see (Pun) where I'm coming from. The D700 has the ability to shoot in light levels that would amaze anyone who first tries it as I'm sure you know. I flogged mine for a 5D MKII Which was a big mistake! It's like a Rebel on Steriods, no idea what I was thinking there
Pixel chasing probably... Another big mistake...

Welcome Back Jules, but what made you venture away in the first place?
You said it yourself when you looked at your hard drive and saw all those glorious Pentax images there!
Not everything in life is Black & White, If only it were!

Like Mike P said the grass looks greener, also a certain amount of peer pressure from long time Nikon Users like myself (Nikon User 25 Yrs)and fellow Landscapers to go FF. (Still hate the term!)
Pentax was however First, an ME Super in 1979 I think?
So back to where I began... Again and on pain of Death if I ever sell up on a whim... again...

With Pentax, your crop-sensor frame is always half full, not half empty!

Your better half is either an angel or very very tolerant. My better half is possibly both as I just mention a camera for Xmas, spring, summer or the weekend and it's a done deal.
