Re: also seriously consider D7100 body for 1.5x reach

I agree that the d7100 might be a good alternate to get more reach, but if a person is photographing under dark skies as I am here in western Oregon, then the d7100 is not a good choice.  I do have a d7100 as my second camera and it stays on the shelf when lighting conditions are not good.  For me I have found that anything over an iso of 1600 with the d7100 produces a lot of noise.
