Hope everyone is doing well!! Summer is officially here, today is the longest day of the year!! From here on they get shorter.
So, what am I thinking now after a couple weeks with the D7100? No surprise, I Love It! My initially concern over the learning curve was wiped out in 2 days of using the camera. I am now very comfortable and find settings & adjustments much easier (more intuitive) and as a result faster.
I have been pleased with the images I have done so far... they include floral, pets, scenic, HDR and Panorama.
I have also been in the market for both a Macro (Micro) lens and an Ultra Wide. I recently missed out on a Sigma Macro (105) and have recently seen a Nikon 85 Micro but had been looking for a used 105. If I do not catch a line on a used 105, I may make an offer on the 85.
I did land the Ultra Wide. Ordered a Tokina 12-24 f/4 (new) and it is shipping today. I was looking at the 11-16 (very pricey) and the sigma 10-20 but could not find any used deals. A friend at Nikonites.com gave me a lead (he just bought one) to a guy had 10 of them and they were priced right. I am now waiting for it to arrive. My lens stable will be complete (for now) once I land a Macro lens.
Thats all this week folks. Get out and enjoy your gear, practice makes perfect (or at least "better").
Have fun shooting ...
