"first outing with D7100"


Reading, GB
          

I received my new D7100 yesterday and proceeded to put it to its paces today with my travel lens 18-200mm. My first impression of this kit is very favourable: although the weather was dull and rainy I was pleased with the results: the colours were very true although a bit underexposed. I attach a couple of shots (a couple of them look a bit soft (water fall and winding road) as I used glamour glow).
Comments welcome
Jean-luc

Thank you Derek. Yes, I went to Virginia Waters despite the forecast and ended up quite wet but still enjoyed it: it is really a magnificent park.

Thank you Tom. Yes, I did not expect to get some decent results right away. I was lucky enough to find a very good youtube video which explained the focusing system and this was really useful. My next step is to get some shots of moving things, people or animals.

I really like the bridge/reflection shot! I own a 7100 also and was almost tempted to trade it for a DF but I came to me senses today!

very nice shots. I'm becoming enamoured with reflective shots. even with the 7100 on the sick list, I think I may have to take the D80 out this weekend. I have a few idea of where i want to shoot weather permitting

Congratulation and some fine images. I love my D7100 and although have used it mainly for wildlife it's fast becoming a landscape friend to my D800. With the absence of the AA filter, I even think of it as a D800E lite

Thank you Richard. It is interesting to hear as I also have a D800 and was considering using the D7100 solely for my far away travels (usually backpacking) but maybe in other situations I could take both: the D800 with 24_70 and the D7100 with 70-200 when I have the space : do you sometimes carry them both? my bag would not accomodate them.

<<.... the D800 with 24_70 and the D7100 with 70-200 when I have the space : do you sometimes carry them both? my bag would not accommodate them.>>

An interesting question, but no I don't take both. I use my D7100 for wildlife + 70-200mm f2.8 and 300mm f4 and associated tele-converters and my D800 for landscape with my 24-70mm f2.8 and 16-5mm f4. As an example, next year we are going to Norway and Iceland and I shall take the D7100 + 300mm for wildlife, however I have very recently bought the Fuji X-E2 + 18-55mm lens as a holiday and travel kit instead of lugging the D800 combo's about.

A quick calculation tells me that the D7100/D800 plus 24-70/70-200mm would add up to 4Kg + the bag, so you are looking at around 5-6Kg but no other lenses with all the accessories. So for me at least that's too much.

Some very fine photos. Seems the D7100 is the right camera for the 18-200mm lens.
