Hi all,

After eight inches of snow fell today, my dog had a serious case of cabin fever. I let him outside to play, thinking it would also be a good time to test the autofocus speed of the D7100 I'd received a few days earlier.

I must say I was blown away by how well the autofocus worked. It struck me as much better than my aging D300. I also loved the large files and the fine gradations in the snow.

My dog was running full-bore straight at me in most of these, and he's one fast pup! Obviously not all shots were keepers, but I was pleasantly surprised how many were.

Specs: D7100, Nikon 70-300 VR (not the fastest focuser in the world), ISO 800 & 1600, f6.7-8, 1/500 to 1/1500 sec., plus 1.5 exposure, 51-point autofocus.

Postprocessing: curves, tone and smart sharpening adjustments in PhotoShop CS5.
