I know they're totally different camera bodies but it got me thinking about all the other options that canon offers. Lenses are cheaper for canon but I guess I haven't looked into the other Nikon's that are out there. I want to get a prime lens but I'm thinking about getting a different full frame body. Any suggestions on upgrading from a D3100?
Not looking to spend a fortune here lol.
Upgrading to a full frame is going to be a fortune whether on Nikon or Canon. How long have you had your D3100? You can get good shots out of it.
Looking through for flickr photostream, I see you shoot primarily with an 18-200 and 18-55 still pretty good lenses for general shooting in daylight. Judging by your shots and the exif data you like to shoot with a wide focal length. I'd recommend the DX 35mm 1.8G. Cheap (can be had for around $100), fast (f/1.8 ), light, and great image quality.
You'd be better off getting the prime and improving you skills instead of the camera. I'd say you only need to upgrade if you need more capabilities for shooting and more functionality on your body. If you must upgrade, go for the D7000. Still a crop sensor, but one of the best Nikon has to offer in recent years. Going for about $800 now in some places.
