"I think Nikon just talked me into buying a second body"


Ontario, CA
          

I bought the D600 in December after selling off 20+ years of accumulated Nikon "stuff". Bags, bodies, lenses, etc and sternly told myself that never again would I collect more then one of anything that I didn't use on a daily basis. My assistant (read wife) who had to carry all the "stuff" around while I did the important things - like taking pictures - agreed with this while displaying more enthusiasm then what I thought appropriate.
Now after reading the specs on the 7100 I can see myself using it as a dedicated wildlife/bird camera with my 70-200 f2.8 and 300mm f4. When I envision sticking my AFS TC-17EII into the mix I begin to hyperventilate. I'll wait till people put the 7100 into use and read the reviews for a couple of months before I tick off my wife but as it stands now it looks most promising. "

I can't yet comment how well the D7100 will do with long lenses and TCs - we'll have to wait until the camera is out - but meanwhile I'm impressed with how you got your wife to carry the gear for you.

It's a long story Tom but if you want to see what she had to go through check out the picture of her in my Northwest Territories (Sub Arctic) gallery. The picture where she's wrestling with a frozen Manfrotto tripod at -35 degrees F.

I often wondered how folk carry 50lb plus of gear all over the place That said I'm more than happy with my "assistant". She won't carry my stuff but there is no upgrade possible on perfection

I like and approve of your attitude toward your "assistant".

That all sounds good (especially the part where the wife does the hard part), but given the pixel density of the D7100, I feel you may find the limit of the TC-17E II. That has been the case for me when I've used that teleconverter with a 300 f/4 on a Nikon V1. The pixel density of that sensor is even greater than the D7100, but still.
