1llusive's current gear

Nikon D7100
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G VR
A really great camera that is for sale only because I am pursuing something better for astrophotography.
Great from f/2.8 onward, f/2 in a pinch. Don't recommend f/1.8.
My wildlife and action lens. The most fun of all of my lenses to use. Not fast but it can't be beat for its price and overall quality and versatility.
Rokinon 16mm F2.0 ED AS UMC CS
Tamron SP 70-300mm F/4-5.6 Di VC USD
Tamron SP AF 17-50mm F/2.8 XR Di II LD Aspherical (IF)
The most cost effective yet high quality night sky wide-angle there is (if you get a good one).
Great all-around zoom with legendary sharpness. I only wish it had a bit more range. Selling to make room for other things.
Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5
Good, but slow. Considering a change...

A small upgrade.

Will be my main lens. The hope is it comes close to my Rokinon 16mm f/2 for landscapes and does portraits at least as well as my 50mm 1.8G; preferably better.

The next great thing. Excited to see how the new Sony IMX321 sensor does with astrophotography.

A curiosity at this point

1llusive's previous gear

Nikon D80
Nikon D300
Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G II
Great starter DSLR. Of course when I saw the D300 it was love at first sight, and I had to have it!
I learned a lot with this camera and it served me well for 5 years. However I preferred the form factor of the D7100, its features and improved image sensor.
Good IQ, but needed something faster in both autofocus and aperture.
Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G IF-ED VR
Nikon AF Nikkor 35mm f/2D
Nikon AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D
Good range and decent IQ, but unacceptable focus field curvature.
