Just wanted to say hi to everyone, I am a new D100 user (2 days now) and wanted to introduce myself to you all.
I live in the UK in Yorkshire and am interested in Wildlife/Nature photography but also cars and aircraft!!
I have jsut bought a D100 with 28-105D and 70-300D lenses after much deliberation!!
I considered the usual 3 S2 Pro, D60 and D100. I discounted the S2 Pro due to the batteries required, the D60 was noticably slower using AF and the Nikon just "seemed Right"!!
Must admit was rather worried with all the "problems" (or are they moans) from other users but so far have found the camera excellent, no problems so far!
Well actualy that aint true, the first D100 I bought I took back as there was a big black mark in the top left hand corner on every picture taken! So got it swopped and have done some reasonable pics already!!! I would post them but dont have a clue how!!
Well would love to hear from anyone else in the UK especially Yorkshire who is into Wildlife photography!
Hope I can be an active member!

Welcome to the "club."
To post your pictures, you type in a path to an image in the "attachment" box below the message box in a new posting. Open up a new post, and you'll see it down below. Be sure and keep your image size 70K or below. Use a JPG image.
Or, you can simply type a URL address directly into your text, and the Nikonians forum software will display the image instead of the web address.

Hello Kevin, welcome to Nikonians, and congratulations on your new D100!
>Well would love to hear from anyone else in the UK
Check. West Yorkshire, near Leeds.
>who is into Wildlife photography!
Ah.... Mainly landscapes, I'm afraid.
I'm sure you'll recognise this:
Now if I'd only had the 80-200 with me that day I could have posted some shots of the seabirds that nest on the cliffs....

Nice meeting you all!
Glad to hear that there are other fellow photographers about in Yorkshire who have gone digital!!
If you ever plan on coming over the East side give me a shout!

Glad to have you as a member. Try looking up Photophil. He's in Belgium, but definitely into wildlife.
I've got my D100 about two days as well and so far I really like it. Cheers.
