Re: Upgrading my D5100

Thanks Dennis. Actually, I have the 50 1.8 G as well as the 1.8 D, and use the former now due to AF (although the latter is still a fantastic lens, even focussing manually).

If you look at my portfolio you'll see what I usually shoot:


I like lightweight cameras, so the D7200 is out for me. I'll either go with the D5500 and keep my current roster of lenses, which is:

Tokina 12-28 f4

Nikkor 18-55 VR

Nikkor 50 1.8 G

Or I'll go for the X-T1 and probably also buy the Fuji 12-28. This would, of course, cost substantially more - we're talking £2000 instead of £500, and - to be honest - I'm not sure if it's worth it ...
