p.1 #1 · BIF with D7100 & 80-400AFS


I know we don't really talk gear here but this combo (well more the new 80-400) is so big for us Nikon shooters (IMO we never had a good handholdable zoom for BIF) that I thought I'd share a shot from this morning

The D7100 is quite an amazing crop body but the new 80-400 is where the secret sauce is. You canon guys have had that awesome 70-300 and we had nada. The 80-400 AFS focuses like a prime and it's IQ is also prime like.

This was shot this morning from a rocking/moving boat on Lake Norman. I can't begin to tell you how much more fun it is to HH this combo vs a 300 2.8, 400 2.8 or 500 f/4 (I usually shoot all of them out there).

Finally getting old is fun again

Love to hear comments like this since mine JUST arrived and is sitting in a box next to me.

It's taking a lot of self control to not leave work to go play.

Beautiful light on that one.

Thanks for the offer! Probably will depend on when, but I'll PM you about the details.

The weight is the same as the 300mm f/4 + TC, give or take an ounce. I shot with it for an hour at lunch and it feels a little fatter in the hand, but it really handles very similarly.

Great images! I was wondering if you would mind posting up the settings you are using on the 7100 for BIF. I am getting my 7100 on Friday and would like to find out what setting are yeilding the best results for BIF. You can PM me if you would rather not post them up on this thread. Thanks!
