D90 + D5100 until the D7100 arrives?
Aug 13, 2012

I have been shooting my stepson's college football games with my D90 and 70-300 with fair results. I was hoping to buy whatever the upgrade is for the D7000, but that won't be available until after the football season is over. Then I hit on the idea to pick up a refurbished (or good used) D5100. It has the sensor and better hi-ISO performance of the D5100 and should be a great complement to my D90. Until the D7100 arrives, I can walk around with the 18-105VR on the D90 for shots along the sidelines and tailgate crowd, and keep the 70-300VR on the D5100 for the action shots on the field. I will no longer have to worry about changing lenses and getting anything on my sensor. Then when football is over, sell both bodies to pick up a D7100 and get familiar with it before next fall. Sound like a plan? Is there something else I might consider?
