Full Frame vs Crop sensor comparison

Images below are from a Nikon 70-200mm on a tripod using a Nikon D2x (crop sensor) and a Nikon D700 (full frame).  Both cameras are 12MP, the D700 has a better exposure metering.

Infrared Conversion by Life Pixel

After taking the above shots, I sent my D2x to Life Pixel to be converted to full time infrared using their Standard Filter.  Below are some IR examples.
