    Re: Thinking about upgrading my Nikon D3100

    D7200, d7500 even though its a disappointment, d500 if you don't mind the price. All good.
    Don't jones too much for in-camera hdr. We'll have you shooting raw and hdr will be grayed out anyway. I love my Sigma 150-600.

    Re: Thinking about upgrading my Nikon D3100

    I wa sstarting over again in January,. I used Nikon's for a long time. I went for the Nikon z50. I think it was the best choice I made so far about camera gears.
    Camera: Nikon Z50
    Lens: DX 16-50 mm f/3.5-6.3 VR

    Don't get confused between my personality and my attitude. My personality is who I am, my attitude depends on who you are.

    Re: Thinking about upgrading my Nikon D3100

    Thank you all for the thoughtful and helpful recommendations! I too have been doing some research on the pros and cons of mirrorless, and am now seriously considering a Z6 of Z7. I realize they're more expensive than a D7xxx series, but I found some more $$ in the budget and I consider this an investment. I hope to use this camera for many years to come.

    I'm still tempted by the D7xxx, but I think with the new Z mount, full-frame sensor, etc, that a Z series body may give me what I've been missing in terms of low-light capability and sharpness. Any thoughts on Z6 vs Z7? Obviously the extra mega-pixels in the Z7 means I could enlarge these shots to my heart's content, but I'm wondering if it's worth it and if I would be better served with a Z6. I've heard the Z6 is supposedly better with fast-moving subjects and facial tracking with auto-focus. Plus the Z series viewfinder might make shooting and adjustments on the fly faster since it theoretically will already give you preview of what you're going to get. I've never worked with a viewfinder of this nature. Any thoughts on making the switch?

    Finally, if I do decide to go with the Z series, it seems that you should really go with FX lenses (rather than DX) to make the most out of the Z-mount and full-frame sensor. Any recommendations on lenses compatible with the Z mount?

    Many thanks again to all of your for sharing your time and expertise! I'm excited to select and get setup with my next Nikon!

    Forget DX lenses with the Z6 Z7. You will want to get the S lenses made for the new mount.

    Check this for some up to date Z info on the latest firmware if you are interested in moving subject tracking compared to DSLR's:
