Drum Roll please.... What did I get?? The New Nikon D7100!!! The BOSS surprised me with it last Wednesday... I had been talking about it for a while now, and doing a flip flop between the 7000 and the 7100. I could save some money with the 7000, especially if I went with a Re-Furb. The problem in my mind, the 7100 had newer technology and would I regret it later??
Well, knowing me and sometimes too much of a penny pincher, the BOSS took that decision right off the Table! I found the learning curve a bit tough as this had more buttons and programs and less Menu than my D5100. This is NOT a bad thing, just going to take a bit longer to learn it all.
I was out of town Fri and Sat and spent Sunday getting real familiar with the camera and its operation. I worked specifically to take 2 pictures for an upcoming challenge and was pleased with the quality of image and the operation of the camera. This really appears to be a quality unit with many top of the line features.
Here are the 2 Challenge Photos' for the Subject of "Love" The "hands" was my final pic to enter...
I have ordered a Battery Grip along with a spare battery and faster SD Card. All of my lenses are compatible and I will also be keeping my D5100 as a back up.
Have fun shooting!!
