    Nikon D6 Let Me Down

    So far so good, I think this is the first Nikon where I was able to get the 3D tracking working and it worked well right out of the box. Love the custom focus groups, they put out a pdf just on suggested setups for sports. I'll give that a read tonight. So far just some shots around the bird...

    Little league is better...

    I believe that says ISO 10K not 100K. And I think it looks more than acceptable. If this keep going i'm going to paint numbers on my dogs and take pics of them running around the yard and call it a sport :)

    Nikon D6 Let Me Down

    For me it just comes down to good auto focus, especially in low light, and durability. I've had my 4s since September of 2014 and have over 200,000 shots on it. Now the 4s will be on my left hip while the 6 will be the main camera. That will make the 3s the spare for the spare. While bodies...

    Nikon D850 advice needed (wife approval imminent!!!!)

    Lots of great advice already and I'd seriously consider saving some money by buying used from one of the well respected online sellers like Adorama or B&H. From what you stated you typically shoot I'd look for a good deal on a used 800, 810 or 850 and also a used Nikon 24-70. B&H has used...
