Crazy. I sent my camera out on a Saturday, they received it on Wednesday, I had the estimate the same day, I ok'd the estimate, they did the work the following day, I had the camera back in my hands early the following week. That sux you are so long without your camera. Hopefully since they have your camera on the bench the repair will only take a day and back out to you.

iOS support will be coming this fall.
Anything is better than a canon.

I just wish they'd announce the D400. If I can swing it, I want one for a graduation present to myself this summer.
If they can get several thousand prosumer sales because of red, so what. I'd get the black one anyway. If they only had the red option, then I'd go a different direction unless they had red lenses too

I dunno... The D5100 has dropped in price to match the D3200. Does that mean the D5100 is up for an update soon or in danger of being obsoleted / discontinued? Anyway comparing the feature sets I don't see much of an advantage of either one and I'm now leaning towards the D5100.

Depends on what you are looking for. The D3200 has more mega pixels, 24 vs 16 but the D5100 has better ISO performance. D5100 has continuous video focusing but the D3200 has a better external mic. The D3200 is smaller and lighter. The D5100 has built in HDR. The D5100 should be a bit cheaper too. For me, the only thing that would make me unsure is the mega pixel or ISO decision. All the other stuff I could care less about.

Unless you're printing up billboards, anything past 10 mp is academic. You have to go from 6 to 24mp to double the lines/mm or dpi. That swiveling LCD makes it a lot easier to get odd perspectives and shot angles. I'm too old to twist like a pretzel trying to get those shots with a fixed LCD (not to mention macro shots). I do like the newer next generation processor in the D3200, but I'm not sure how much better the image will be compared to the D5100 because of it.

I'd go for the d5100...

In other news, new rumors today of a Nikon D600! Supposedly its going to be an entry level full frame camera, and probably nicely priced....that should get a few of you salivating and saving your pennies lol...

Unfortunately you'll still have to buy FX glass, so you better be saving a lot of pennies lol!

All I have is FX glass LOL. It may be old, but I can have it chipped and it should be good to go for another 35 years.

I'm looking forward to the D400, if it ends up being DX. I don't feel like nor can I afford to replace all my glass anytime soon.

Thanks, I'll have to check it out...



In other news, here's some pics from a recent engagement photoshoot, hope you guys like them as much as the clients did, they were such great people! Feedback is welcome, we all have room to grow and get better!



5.



This photo is amazing sir. The couple is totally stand out of the background. Is that 80-200 2.8 III? What other lens you use for D700?

I just got a D700 2 days ago, amazing camera!!! I could never done this bokeh on D7000 before, on a 50 1.8D

Thanks! It was taken with the 70-200 2.8 VRII. The 70-200 VRII is my absolute favorite portrait lens, it just gives such amazing results when you use it right, and the VRII is a lifesaver in general and especially in dimly lit churches. I also use the Nikon 24-70 2.8, Nikon 50mm 1.4G, and Nikon 35mm 1.4G ...I want to get a 24mm 1.4G again next, and then a 14-24, but I want to get a new 27" iMac when they release the new models sometime in May or June, and then I can think about more lenses

And nice shot! You'll come to love that D700 and you'll become inseparable. And I agree, one of the biggest advantages of full frame cameras is the amazing (lack of) depth of field that you get

My 55-200mm 4-5.6G works on my D3100 perfectly as it should, but my older 28-80mm 3.3-5.6G doesn't AF on it. I don't have my D7000 to test it on to see if it auto focus. Why would one G lens work while the other G lens doesn't?

They should all work, but yours apparently doesn't.
