New Year, New Body, New D7100

Posted on Posted in Nikon D7100

This new year is going to be a great one for me in the world of photography. I’m journeying outside of my home of Austin, TX to shoot a lot more of the United States, but I decided beforehand I would need a change.  After several months of debate I decided to take that leap once again and bought a new body.  After reading countless reviews, forum posts, and watching youtube video after video I decided on a Nikon D7100.  Even though it is a few years old it hit all my requirements over the Sony A6000.

The first point being I have been a Nikon shooter since the D40 days and I have too much invested gear wise into Nikon lenses to just up and go to another brand.  I do love quite a few things about the small and easy to shoot Sony, but the expense going into the camera and buy the lenses I wanted was just going to be too great of a cost.  I ran across a great deal on a refurbished body that seemed to only make sense at the time.


I have to say that I am more than pleased with my Nikon D7100. The camera is quick and has a great dynamic range.  While I still haven’t gotten the hang of everything on the camera just yet I would like to say that I am coming along after a few weeks of use.
