tukaniSVT If you are debating between the D7100 and the D800 ... If you have the funds ... D800 hands down. It's Full Frame, it has way more pixel to sensor and is amazing in lowlight.

I have shot with the D7000 and compared to the D800, it's miles apart.

Same thing happened when the D300s and D700 were both out, though the same pixels, being Full Frame the pixels were able to breath more which in turn gave more room for low-light capability and cleaner shots.

I own the D300s and D600 and shoot with the D800 often for projects. These new Full Frame Sony sensors are just plain awesome.

Duratec 2.3 Don't forget the d7100 also remove also optical low-pass filter, I am either considering getting one or the D800

tukaniSVT Yes the D7100 does have an internal focus motor for older lenses.

Also just found out that they are stepping away from the Sony Sensors and went with Toshiba for the D7100 sensor.

Interesting find there for me. The D7000, D600, D800 and D4 all have the Sony Sensor.

rambleon84 Anyone have any suggestions about getting into macro photography? Needs some suggestions on a decent setup to start with. Looking to get at least a 1:1 or something comparable. Something that I can take out to shoot flowers, insects, zooming in on someones eyeball ect..

The camera is a sony nex-5n. The way I see it I have three options...

1. Sony SEL30M35 - 30mm f/3.5 Macro Lens $279.99 new (probably around 200-230 used.)
2. Raynox DCR-150 or DCR-250 both are snap ons and around $70 new.
3. Buying an adapter and looking at other macro lens.

Any suggestions on the best route, affordability is preferred but not at the complete sacrificing of quality shots and ease of use? Not opposed to buying used or off brand names. For option 2 with the Raynox setups, I'd be using it on the Sony SEL55210, 55-205mm zoom lens I already have. I have seen some decent results that way and it would probably be the most economical. I just have no idea how well it would work as a rig I could take out into nature or how the 150 compares to the 250.

tukaniSVT Any camera these days and up to any from 2000 and up are very good digitally and will hold a very good photo given each camera's and each photographer's abilities.

The D90 is a great camera, I use to have one. It's not the greatest in low-light, but if you light up a subject or adjust your shooting style, it can overcome that easily.

Really, it's all about what you take photos of that creates the limits for your own style.

I moved to a D300s, because I ventured into motion automotive photography. And non of the other Crop frame cameras aside from the D200 had the Continuous Focus 3D feature. The D300s, D300 and D200 were the cameras at the time that did. So that was my limit then.

Aside from that, I would have kept the D90.

speedracer ZX3 How are images from the D90? Think of getting one as a back up.

tukaniSVT Enjoy it ... it's a great camera.

And utilize the Continuous focus function. Great for take photos of race cars or fast sports and not just snapping away to get focus to react.

speedracer ZX3 Picked a D300 up doesn't seem too bad so far any tips?
