    For me I am intending to go from 500D after 3 years to FF, main reason is the high ISO performance. 500D has served me very well, shooting in wide variety of photography but slowly I am not too pleased with images with ISO 800 and above.

    I may be a hobbyist but I thought if I can afford a better gear why not? Haha not really a gadget geek but I guess people wish to own better gear, though justifying the purchase is another.

    Can I ask?

    So as compare with Nikon D7k of ISO6400 and a
    Full frame camera of ISO6400

    The one in full frame will be better??

    I switched from a D5000 to a D3, main reasons are the high ISO capability, every feature button for ultimately easy access, and the ergonomics of the body. Even though it's an old model, it still packs a serious punch. No regrets

    Because bigger is always better? Or more $$$ is always better?

    I think it's more important for the TS to think about what the TS is looking for in a new camera, rather than what are the reasons to get a "full frame" camera... what is it in your current camera that you find inadequate?... what do you shoot? where do you shoot? in what way is your current equipment holding you back, if any?...

    they are all film cameras, and notice catchlights' description: they are all "full frame"... but they are all using different size film... "full frame" is not a format as such, it is used by some companies to say their digital sensors matched a certain film format, typically, but not exclusively, 135 (35mm) still photography film format... but one can also have a "full frame" aps-c sensor, or "full frame" of any other film format, and there are many formats...

    Thanks for the explanation !

    I am lucky to live in this digital age.
    But if one been thru the film format,
    I think one will even appreciate more.

    I have a Bronica SQ, a 120 6x6 full frame camera
    Vege Bird is very lost.

    So is

    Kodak instamatic a full frame camera? What is 126?
    4x5 wooden pinhole camera a full frame camera? What is 4x5?
    F90XA full frame camera? Is the 35mm a special lens to the F90XA or something else?
    Bronica SQ a full frame camera What is a 120 6x6?

    What is a full frame? You take a photo and it can fit nicely into a photo frame? (Maybe photo frame has a standard call full frame IDK)
    Are those camera point and shoot digital camera with different length?
    126mm, 20mm (4x5 = 20), 35mm, 120mm and 36mm (6x6 = 36)

    Prime lenses are seductive. You should try various lengths to see the effect & they affect your photography+how you look @ an image again vs zooms. If your 35mm is an FX lens then you can use on FF body but if it's a DX lens, then the pixels are halved. A lot of tech details on this so you should do some research.

    I have D700 then bought the D7000 & both serve different purposes though there's no qualms about using the D7K for important shoots. Sometimes, I also shoot with my Canon7s & FM2 or even those "idiot" cams.

    For me, ISO of D7K starts to fall off @ 400 while I can still use Iso800~1000 on the D700. Anything above 1600 sucks on both. All manufacturers boast about their techincal features but we only use 20-50% of them in real life while I keep the ISO as low as possible & only push it for the grainy effect but rarely.

    Sounds like you've not fully utilised your D7k but as a shopping spree, then go for D800 or you'll find yourself posting a thread between 700 vs 800. Beware the FF though, you'll need quality lenses to go with it.
