Re: Want to 'downgrade" from D700 to D5100

HI Stephen

I did have a d7000 for about a month but exchanged it with other bits for a D3s. Really liked it but not this time round for 3 reasons:

1. bigger
2. Had no angle monitor which I need because of my mobility issues
3. Way over my budget!

If you're going lightweight I'd suggest you consider the 18-105 VR ( very good optically ) and the 55-300 VR. The extra range of the 18-105 over the 18-55 is well worth it and very handy for general shooting.

I'd suggest you consider the D7000 as well. Yes it's bigger than the D5100, but it's also got a lot more control for someone used to a pro camera. Combined with the light lenses you're still well ahead on weight compared to the full frame options.
