Bought a new body



Log in to see fewer ads
No not that kind of body (the old one has some smiles in it still), a new camera body...

Nikon D7500. Just had it for 3-1/2 weeks. It's a keeper!

When paired with a Sigma 150-600mm lens (that lens is a keeper, too), it's unstoppable.

Great choice, love my old D7000 too! Almost keeps up with the D2Xs in image quality but does have more features. Stil waiting for the price of a used D3 full frame to drop a little more.

Excellent choice and great images. When I pair my D7500 and Sigma 100-400mm, the results can be amazing.



Got these shots at the Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge up along the Red River west of Sherman, TX.

Amazing shot. What gear did you use?

COW 54 - Nice camera & lens combo and great pictures by other contributors. I have been a Nikon user over the years and my last effort in this area was a pair of D7100's. Similar to switching barrels on rifles, I missed a lot of shots when I needed a bit more reach or wanted to do some Macro work . . . so I added a second body and pretty much dedicate my AF-S Nikkor 300mm 1:4D for the longer range work. It's fast enough that I can handhold with the IS function. The other D7100 usually has the AF-S Nikkor 18-300 mm 3.5-6.3G ES mounted ( I call it my walkaround lens) so I can zoom in & out as needed to frame the image. It also has IS so most work can be done handheld, but I also have monopods that assist that effort..

I usually return the selector to "Auto" just in case I do not have the time to choose my preferred setup for any given shot. I typically use "A" "S" or Scene options when I have the time.

The smartphone cameras are getting better and better, but I still like my D7100's for wildlife, plantlife, and landscape efforts. The lion & leopard shots were taken from a moving overhead tram at our local zoo. I like hunting with my 35mm's. . .

Nice pics and gear. I recently upgraded my stuff as well. I am a Canon user though. Bought a new D77 to use with my bigger lenses. I also picked up a nice 100-400 L series lens. For a walk-around I added an M6 mirrorless body as well.

We have a lot of pronghorns around here so I have been harassing them with my cameras.

I do all of my photos offhand. We tend to do a lot of birding - when the opportunity arises you HAVE to get the shots off very quickly. They come from all over

Canon's take good pictures, too...

Half to two thirds of of 'em are in skilled pro hands. Sometimes I feel like an outlier with a Nikon.
