Re: Thinking about moving to Nikon and buying D7100


I left Oly last December for Nikon when I purchased a D600 with the 24-85 lens. I bought a D7100 s a back-up, but I use it regularly on my 200-400 as I mainly photograph wildlife.

I'm impressed with the 7100. It's AF is excellent as is its IQ. I'm sorry I can't answer your lens questions as I don't have any experience with them.

The biggest difference I've found between the two systems is the "fit and finnish"; I really liked how my Oly gear was put together.  I had an E-3 & an E-5 with some SHG glass and I loved how it "felt".  That being said, there is nothing wrong with the build quality of my Nikon gear. I use it a lot and I've had no problems.

It was expensive to switch systems and for me it was the correct move. I haven't looked back and I have no regrets. I did keep my E-1 and 11-22mm.
