    If you are not sure what you want in terms what you will be shooting, then better stick to your current camera and invest in better/different lenses. You may not have fully utilize/understand your current camera system.

    A good read from the below article will illustrate my point.

    For me, it's clear what I want. I needed a very capable low light camera (plus good overall performance) hence I chose 5D3 which is a good 3-4 stops better in low light performance over APS-C. so what is your compelling point to choose either D800 or 5D3 or even a Lecia M9. What are pros and cons if you were to switch. You will need to know this when you spend your hard earn money so that you dun regret later.

    My 2 cents worth
    Agree.

    And why wouldn't a 50mm f1.8 bring out the full capability of the FX. Using FX, it will be 50mm. The limit is whether you can produce the photo you want. Honing your skills will be a better way.

    It's hard to tell without knowing the kind of photography you are into and what stage are you in now.
    Do you plan to purchase for professional use? or it's just a hobby?
    You can still get magnificent photos our of your current gear, if you feel that your photography quality lack because of gear limitation then you can consider to upgrade. If you have lots of money, then go ahead. Who cares right?

    I shoot street, and I rarely touch my DSLR anymore, in fact I use my point and shoot most of the time (RICOH GRD4).
    I downgraded (tech wise).
    It serves me well.
