Thanks David, the Df has replaced the D700 as my walkabout/travel camera but still have , and use the D700. Love the files from the Df, the few extra MP, but I do wish it had 51Pts.

I'm using it most of the time now since I'm not shooting as many birds (lousy year for birds here, too much encroachment on their habitat and the associated pollution of the water bodies ) .

I also think I need to send the D7100 back to Nikon since all of my long lenses need fine tuning and that seems to be hit and miss. When I think I have the fine tuning right , I'll suddenly get images that are not on. Seems the AF moves around. Remembering a post from Kris in Ct, I think I will send it in.

Jim Pearce has not had the same problem with his D7100.

Anticipate the Light and wing it when you get it wrong

Ah yes...  what to keep, always a conundrum.  I have the D7100 with its excellent 51 point AF system for birding, and like Jim, all of my lenses are spot on with it (and my D700).  I think I'd like the output from the Df sensor more than my D700 and the smaller size and compatibility with non-Ai lenses is a real bonus.  I've recently become hooked on collecting MF glass and the Df just seems to be a logical extension to my new passion.... I'm returning to Canada for the summer and I hope the prices there are a little better than here in Oz.

PS - I enjoyed your smugmug page!

Cheers and good light, D. Hamments
