| p.1 #15 · Wildlife shooter considering switching to Nikon - advice needed and appreciated |
The Canon 7D is probably the BEST camera for wildlife right now. Nikon really doesn't have an equivalent. Nikon's equiv. to the Canon 100-400mm IS is now aboug 10 years old, too. If I were you, I'd simply get an adapter and use a 200-400mm f4 on your 7D. A d800 would be my last choice for wildlife. You lose the 1.5x reach, there are AF issues, and the fps is pretty slow. It's more of a wedding camera. The problem with shooting a D800 in crop mode is you are basically getting the performance of the D7000 camera. Why spend $3000 on a camera and then have it perform like a $1,000? It makes a LOT more sense to just buy the $1,000 camera and spend the $2,000 saved on a great trip somewhere, or on a better tripod etc. There is a LOT of hype on camera bodies.
