1llusive's current gear

Nikon D7100
Nikon AF-S DX Nikkor 16-80mm F2.8-4E ED VR
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G
Best camera I've ever owned. Buffer is a bit of a limitation when shooting 14-bit RAW but I see no reason to upgrade at this time. I'll see what a D7600 can do for me.
New arrival. Can it replace the excellent Tamron 17-50, which has been on my Nikons for 8 years?
Considering selling this lens because I'm not sure I have a use for it.
Nikon AF-S Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G VR
Samyang 16mm f/2.0 ED AS UMC CS
Tamron SP AF 17-50mm F/2.8 XR Di II LD Aspherical (IF)
My wildlife and moon 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.
For landscape and wide astro shots, this one can't be beat. A steal at under 4 Benjamins.
Great all-around zoom. Excellent sharpness.
Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5
Don't know what I'd do without it.

I'd love to have this for dramatic full-sky Milky Way shots.

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 ;)
Served me well for 5 years, but wanted the better (for me) ergonomics of the D7100, its features and the 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.
