I'm quite happy with my D700 still. The only real improvements I'd appreciate are a 100% viewfinder, and the sensor from the D4, or the D3S before it.

I liked the D800E I was playing with at the local Henry's, but I'm in no rush to upgrade. The D700 is just that fine a camera.

Really good Jeff! So many to mention...Ray's eagles...Leighton's rainbow. Man, my memory is not so good, but I enjoyed them all. Just wanted to mention. The camera bodies deprecate faster than you can say "great shot"! Lenses, on the other hand, lose value slowly...and sometimes even appreciate quite dramatically. It's something to consider when purchasing camera gear. Good glass holds it's value.

Yikes! Just joined this group, and I already made a disloyal acquisition: a Rokinon 85 1.4 with chip. Really want the Nikon 85 1.4 ais, but good ones are going for ~$700. Well see how this compares to my 85 2 ai.

On the plus side, I did get a 135 2.8 ais to round out my collection...

Oh man...I can't spell either. I meant depreciate not deprecate...

If you or anyone you know is interested, I have a 105mm 1.8 on the B&S.

Now I am going back to trying to get over this crap cold/flu/whatever I have. Hopefully I will feel better tomorrow, so I can go out and shoot some.

Thanks Jim!

Tony, if I didn't have a 105mm I'd jump on yours. Good luck with your sale and hope you're feeling better.

Rafael, have a great trip. I look forward to seeing your shots from El Salvador.

Some Doors especially to help Leighton pass the time as I believe he has stated he has a thing for them. These are the doors of Sanguinetto in Italy (near Verona).

1-4 are with the 55mm micro and the last is the 28mm series E.







Thanks for the doors Mark, I like this one the best. Maybe I'll quit farming and travel around the world to shoot doors!

I think that if this pixel density were a problem we would have heard of any problems from the D5200 or D3200 they both have 24mp although they are different sensors. I had thought that if I did sell my D7000 w/kit lens I would ask $900. The D7100 w/kit is $1500.


Ray, FWIW, I sold my D7000 ant kit lens separately right after the D600 came out. I got $850 for the camera and $215 for the lens. Good luck selling yours and I'm looking forward to seeing your work with the D7100! Judging by the latest eagle images you posted, it really wouldn't matter what camera you had they would be great!

Mark, great doors.

Ray, more wonderful eagle shots.

Here's a b&w conversion, taken with the 28mm 2.8, from one of my favorite local trails.







Wonderful play with light and shadows with this one Jeff, Well seen, and nicely converted.

Well David, you can just claim temporary insanity! Congrats on the 135 though. And so it begins.

Looks like a stellar lens. Hope you feel better soon.

It will also auto focus up to F8 instead of F5.6


wrong audience





Not necessarily as the TC16A is allowed, and also the focus lights are very useful when focusing a manual super tele.

Sounds like a great camera on paper. My only real concern would be packing that many more MP's on that size sensor.

They said the same thing about the D800


I recall reading that the pixel density of the D800 is very close to the density of the D7000. With this increase, the D7100 density will be substantially higher. Yes, we learned that increasing pixel density is not guaranteed to reduce low light performance or create other anomalies but we'll need to see how this camera performs to know for certain. I understand, of course, why this camera would appeal to you Ray. Your work with the D7000 is outstanding and you've described some very attractive improvements in the new release. I hope it performs as expected and that you find the means to get one for yourself. I'm guessing the market for a used D7000 just took a hit, which doesn't work for you but might spur Peter to take the plunge...

I'm still waiting for a D700 replacement...


Once you go FX ye shall never go back!!! But seriously we all know what is coming. Hey I got my new D7100 and it is way better than a D800 or a D4 yada yada yada yada. Just exactly what does anyone on this thread need with 51 autofocus points. I don't need any. In fact I wish I would have kept my D3.


It depends on one's use. I play both sides, far prefer manual focus but sometimes AF is needed for moving subjects.

You sold a D3? Why?
I love going to the Canon forum to listen to the weeping and nashing of teeth


I sold my D3 and then got the D800. In the hands of the right person it may of made a difference. In mine it was a waste of time.! At least I sold it before the bottom dropped out of the price on it. The price is already really low on a used D7000- I hope it does not go down more because of this new camera. My wifes is a great camera and it is not going anywhere.


I kept the D3 when buying the D800, glad I did, I have 20*30 prints from the D800 that the D3 could never make, also have 12*18" prints with the D3 that would not be any better from the D800. Also for high ISO the true results are equal for prints of any size, anything 1600 or over the D3 and D800 are equal but with a quarter the file size and processing time. I use the D3 for people and the D800 for landscape. Just my HO.

Ray - You are getting so good with the 300mm f4.5.

Took a flower from wife's V-day vase...

50 1.2 AIS

Going slightly off-tangent, Anton (agentbird) is in town, although he's now off galivanting in other parts of SE Asia. Trying to get hold of him (or him of me, looking at my work schedule) so we could put the 45PCE through the paces together. Simply thinking that it's because of this thread that I'm now friends with a zany Norwegian from halfway round the world, well, gives me goosebumps!
