Hi Everyone. Well I just got back from Great White Shark diving off Guadalupe Island and it was amazing. I took my current setup with me which is a Nikon D3200 in an Ikelite housing. I took a ton of photos and some of them look really good (or so I thought). There were a few divers that had top of the line equipment that cost 10 times what I have and their photos looked unbelievable. I have attached a photo of mine and a photo from one of the other divers. Mine is the 2nd photo.
So I am now at the point where I want to upgrade my equipment. I am debating on whether to bite the bullet and get a D810 and new housing, but I would have to buy all my lenses again. The alternative is to get a D7200 and new housing which is the best crop sensor Nikon makes at the moment. If I get the D7200, I already have all of the lenses.
So here is my question, is the D810 worth the extra $3000 after I buy all new lenses? I've used the D7200 and D810 topside a couple times, and they are both great cameras. I did some low light tests and that is where the D810 seems to excel. But does is it worth spending $3000 extra?
Let me know what you think. I appreciate any help you can give me.
