I got my new kit yesterday! They were sold out of the D5200 with kit lens so I bought the body separate, 70-200 f4, Sigma 8-16, and since I didn't get the 18-105 kit lens I chose another lens off the rebate list, the 60mm micro.

I know composition wise there is nothing this image has to offer. However, I am pretty excited about my first ever true macro lens. I think it is a lot of fun! If I wanted to get up close and personal with the beetle, I would definitely have to use a tripod (uggh, more money, lol) but for a hand held shot I am impressed by the lens.

Shooting what little I have with the D5200, it is exactly what I wanted and I am happy with my selection! The size is perfect and I think the 70-200 f4 was an outstanding choice. Much lighter than the big brother 2.8. I still need to test the 8-16. I know I will want to add a jack of all trades type lens (probably the kit lens) at some point. I will likely try and snag it used when I find a good deal on it.

One last question. I know the D5200 shoots 14 bit RAW and that is what I want. However in the past there was a selection for 12 bit or 14 bit and I don't see that as a choice. I just want to make sure I have the correct setting, especially since it is said that banding occurs far less often when using 14 bit.
