    But is there any lens that's equivalent to a 12mm ultra-wide on a FF??

    Have a nice day.

    Why I upgraded from crop body to FF?
    The perceived improvement with low-light shooting when accompanied with awesome glass.

    How was FF?
    Don't know. Hard to say when one hates the system.

    Why I am going back to a humble D80 and DX all-in-one?
    Meh. Crop has worked well for me in the past. Don't need the fancy 5D2.

    Recommendations?
    Research properly as I didn't.

A good photograph still depends largely on your imagination and your eyes. There are dozens of crop-sensor users who produce more stunning shots than FF users out there. As for FF, you will get more choices for wide angle lenses.

    There are circular fisheyes for FF as well. Like the el cheapo Peleng 8mm for instance, and the sigma 8mm.

    But i am not aware of any autofocusing circular fisheye nikkors/canons for FF. There are the older MF nikkors and are pretty pricey and not easy to get.

    Sounds kinda true

    jokes aside, crop bodies can produce good photos also.. and do remember, when you use FF, to get the most out of it, you have to use GOOD GLASS.
    Hmmm, true... but I'm wondering if that applies to crop bodies as well? (i.e. to make the most of crop bodies, i have to use good glass as well?)

    GOOD GLASS = L lens?
