    Re: Happy D5100 Owner at 10,000 Frames

    Thanks again y'all. I do need to take more pictures,

    My brother just sent me our Dad's early 1970s-era Nikkor 35mm f/2.8 with factory converted AI. I figure it converts to 50mm on my D5100. It should be a nice walk-around lens and will be fun to play with. The last time I messed around with an old Nikkor lens using manual settings, it was at a car show and a woman nearby was glaring at me like I was some kind of freak. I wasn't blocking her shot. I just think she was jealous.

    Still shooting with my D5100, now at 17,679 frames shot. Up from 10,000 nearly two years ago and I still love the camera.

    I continue to think about upgrading, but haven't done any research yet. A bit more resolution and a faster burst rate would be welcome additions.

    You 5100 has been serving you well, some great RR images. But if you need us to talk you in to buying something new we'll be glad to help out.
    My 7100 has 21K after 4 1/2 years.

    Thank you. Your results using your D7100 are outstanding across all kinds of subject matter and compositions. I guess the upside of keeping an older camera is our familiarity with them, knowing what's likely to work in a situation and what might not. In any case, I'm sticking with Nikon. After 40 years, I'm not about to jump ship.

    I think my next photo expenditure will be a slide and negative scanner, either the Epson V600 or V800. I have thousands to scan including my parent's slides, so the greater capacity of the V800 might be worth its much greater price. Though, if it's made in China and is affected by new import tariffs, it'll likely be the more affordable V600.
