#15. "RE: Great greys, and now this Al?" In response to In response to 12 Fri 15-Mar-13 01:44 AM by cockers
Actually it was guys like you and Dave Sommers that really got me thinking about the potential benefits of the 7100 for nature shooting. So when I read this thread this AM I called my nearest brick and mortar store in Oshkosh around noon and they had just received their shipment . . . 4 kits and 2 bodies only. I told them I was on the way over after work and made it there 1/2 hour before closing. BINGO!!
First impressions are solid, well laid out - other than the goofy zoom controls. I did some quick handhelds in the house with 24-120 f4 VR and wow - very sharp! I can't wait to try it out on some birds - I'll take it up to my cabin this weekend.
I wanted to get the grip also, but they're not shipped yet.
