So, I've been reading up here and there and checking comparisons and have come to the decision that I want to buy a D7100. I believe it's recently come out?

I currently have a D90 that I work with and have gone into a shop to check out the size and weight of the 7100. A little bit heavier but not a lot.

I'm thinking I'd like to get the Sigma 50-500mm as well and believe these two would be a good combination for birdlife and wildlife shots?

Do you think I'll need to use a tripod or could get used to doing handheld? Of those of you using this combination do you do handheld?

Birding is a challenge in itself and it took me a good 2-3 weeks to get used to holding my current 70-300mm without shaking too much - even with the VR switched on.

Looking for feedback on what others are doing and how they find it please.

Oh, and I'm in Melbourne, Australia, if you have suggestions for places to get both.
