I shot this this evening, This is just cropped, right out of the camera, no adjustments! I am thinking that I might like the new unit. Will be trying it out this weekend, hopefully with some light.
D7100, 70-300mm VR, @300mm, ISO 640, 1/1000 F5.6

Hi Paul very nice picture. I just had to process it, hope you don’t mind. I would like to get this as a backup camera.

Happy Shooting,
Bill

I processed it in OnOne Software Photo Suites 7; I can only guess now what I did. But this will be close.

1. Color Correction – Auto Fix - 80%
2. Landscape – Magic Ocean – 30-40%
3. Sharpening – Amazing Detail – 10-15%

I ran your new picture thru it but you already did a great job on editing it. The Amazing Detail pulled a little more detail out of the bird.

Great Shots,
Bill

Great looking images, and with a bit of pp much improved.

Your images confirm what I've found in only a couple of days in the field.
This camera really works well, had great image quality and focuses dead sharp. No discussion, no perhaps, no hesitation.
I've been waiting for a replacement for the D7000 and the D300s and I think this will for my work fill the bill admirably.
My 500mm f/4 and 300mm f/4 haven't looked so good for a long time.

Larry, just a suggestion.
Try using your 70-300mm lens at 250mm f/8. You should see an appreciable increase in sharpness over 300mm and over f/5.6.
