Thanks guys for the very kind comments.

Georg, in fact I sold the D7000 and did not made any tests. I have not fully explored the camera, since I bought it less than 3 months ago. Generally the images are similar with 2 differences: it seems the newer model has a little bit more noise (no big deal since I like grain and sometimes even add some!) but at the same time D7100 allows a lot more cropping (always needed for birds).

Wow Ronny, surely you are the master of damselflies!!

Next 4-5 days I will be travelling to the countryside for collections of field data for my ornithological projects.

A couple more from South Caroiina before I went to Kentucky
Fall was still around
All with my favorite lens I was worried that I wouldn't like as much on crop as I did with FF but I was wrong.

I like the first one Reagan. Calming colorsif they are such a thing, or should I say pleasing colors.

Eric I love that place .... Yosemite is a treasure trove of image opportunities ... is it possible to fail there ??

Reagan - Nice Autumn colours !!

Ronny - you are setting the standard high again ... I've got to wait now till spring or summer for the chance to emulate.

Phillippe - your Paris shots are making me want to re-visit the city .... excellent

Chin ... that Tokyo shot is Tack Sharp ....Love it. - I just took delivery of the same lens. ..... here's hoping

Ron congrats on the Df ... nice shots !!

Jay your gratuitous bokeh is stunning .... Love it !!

Just took delivery of a 28mm f2.8 Ai-s a couple of days ago ....

Took it with me to work ....

It was dark on the way back ... winter for you ....

Apparently Manchester hosts the largest German Xmas Market outside of Germany ...

Not sure it gets as big as the one Goerg took pix of the other day !!!

Anyway ... 28mm f2.8 ISO1600

I just got my new 20mm 3.5 from our good friend Chuong and it's a beauty. I think I am going to love this little lens

Ray, I have the same lens (only in much worse cosmetic condition than yours). Let us know what you think after you shoot with it some, I can't see giving mine up.

Great shots everyone, especially the night scenes!

D800 24mm PC-E The slide lock suddenly doesn't work, so I had to hand hold the movement, focus and shoot. Now I'm wishing for an old fashion metal lens!

Ray - thanks for the positives

James - thank you. I love the iced grass shots, perfectly focused and well seen.

Scott - I like the image and am amazed at the climate changes you have

Eric - the crane hook is spot on - the other 2 a little soft perhaps.

Georg - thanks. You're right all sports have changed to "fashion industries". In the past guys would go fishing in old clothes now they have more logos on their clothes than Sebastian Vettel!

The Xmas fair shots are terrific and you have captured the atmosphere which is IMO as important as any technical stuff.

Dan - congrats on the lens. I like your shots esp of the dog.

Reagan - where's the washing? Love the pegs

Jay - I didn't realise there are mangrove swamps in Arizona! Nice shot.

Philippe - wonderful image. Love the detail and DOF.

Chin - just superb "hello kitte"

Ron - the 2nd shot does it for me.

Jose - lovely thrush shot

Ronny - beautiful damsel fly

Chuong - very nice selective focus

Georg - it could have been worse - a Wartburg

Jeff - the couple of days were well spent. Excellent.

Steve - thanks. Terrific market shots - I love all of these images (yours and Georg's) because they're the 21st Century equivalent of Pieter Bruegels 16 th Century paintings

Ray - a beauty. Enjoy!

Jay - well seen and done. He'll be out of business when the US manages to shake off its Cuban complex

Thanks Chuong

Rick I will try to remember that

Thanks Ray. A few of us from florida along with Jay from Arizona are going to Bok Tower on Weds so I hope to put this lens to some good work. I am also looking forward to using Jays 55 1.2

Thanks Steve. I love your "everyday life" photos. It is so nice to see other parts of the world through a friends eyes.

Jay looks like you had a great time in Ybor City. Cigar rolling is this part of Tampa's speciality and that's a great shot!

Thank you Peter I think I will enjoy this lens hopefully as much as my 24mm 2.8 AIS

Wow ronny last one is superb!

Peter ,Yeah I know the coffee cup is definitively soft but in this case I like it that way. I didn't even try to sharpen it up or increase clarity, it felt right to me. Thanks for pointing it out to me. I am a sharpness freak and I see right away when it is soft

Ray (FL), beautiful acquisition from Chuong, who looks like took very good care of the 20 3.5! Those lens pictures sure make the heart skip a beat

Steve, always enjoy those scenes from London and Manchester. Seems like the shoppers are in very much the holiday mood. And look at that orderly crowd at the subway. Haven't quite seen that little entropy in the DC metro when its crowded

Jay, what a great scene of the guy working on cigars! And interesting mangrove.

Ronny, the colors and sharpness on the second pic are excellent!

Georg, very neat look at the hanging tail light and thanks for sharing your early automobile memories. And those holiday market images are so alive and colorful, its a pleasure going back and looking at them several times!

Jeff, what a grand scenic place to spend Thanksgiving, will look for more of your pics from there.

Reagan, nice fall pics from South Carolina. And enjoyable clothespins!

Philippe, enjoyed the look at Musee Grevin very much!

Chin, you made the 28 2.8 AIS do quite admirably in the absence of the storied 14-24 AF I keep on looking at that scene, one of those wall hanging types.

Jose, the thrush is so accurately captured with your technique!

Chuong, the 85 1.4 really likes that door knob! Very nice.

James, loved that frozen dry grass!

Scott, glad the snow is staying with you for now, although the season's just getting under way, I shouldn't speak too soon That image of the red berries holding up a tuft of snow is marvelous!

Eric, looks like a lot of fun with your new 50 1.2 AIS. That blue hook is particularly nice.

Dan, nice acquisition of that superb lens. The 85 looks to be in excellent condition, you are going to enjoy the capabilities of that lens.

Peter (Knysna), the 500 f8 is very capable in your hands. Nice capture of the expectant look on the boy who is fishing. And great colors in the sky!!

Sar, what an amazing close up of the owl. More than the crisp feather detail on its face I love the look at the intelligent eyes. You are giving Jose some competition here finally

JD, very nice birding work with the 200, especially the hummers! As Leighton said, the 180 2.8 should not be too hard to find at a good price.

Chuong, hope to see more with your 600mm super tele.
