Re: "I am selling my Nikon gear"

Sometimes there are other reasons for selling 'heavy' DSLR gear - such as physical limitations.  I'm  a big guy and the weight of the Nikon D700 and lenses usually was not an issue.  However, over the past few years I've had 4 hip surgeries, with one more scheduled.  I like to get out, go for walks, and hiking on the Appalachian trail in Eastern PA.  Because of the hip I often use a walking stick or cane.  The DSLR was just a bit too much for me to handle, and quite often my hikes were not as much fun.  I really wanted to keep both systems ... X-system and Nikon gear, but as a non-professional having two expensive systems, one of which I didn't use much, was hard to justify. Yes, I miss the fast focus/3d tracking of the D700 (grandkids can move fast on a hot wheel ), but I'm finding my walks fun again.
