    D7100 - D750 conundrum?

    I'm about to order a new D750 as a second body to my D7100; That's the easy part. Now, do I put the big Tamron 150-600 on the 750 and use it for wildlife and birds keeping the 7100 as a walkabout/scenery camera with the 18-140 or, do I keep the Tamron on the 7100 and buy a new lens for the 750? In the latter case, what lens should I look at?

    Mods, if this is in the wrong forum I apologize but I wasn't sure where else to put it.

    D7100 purists, I'm not deserting you so please don't be offended at my misuse of your forum.

    Not deserting at all. A lot of D7100 owners move up to the D750 and keep the D7100 as a backup/wildlife camera. I am working on that upgrade with my wife right now. From what I have read the two cameras feel and work a lot alike.

    I think you have the equation backwards, the 750 is full frame so it is the wide view landscape camera, and the d7100 is the wildlife and bird camera. Why, because with birds you typically computer crop the image anyway, so the edges are meaningless. The entire purpose of full frame is to use the edges. Almost every image here is computer cropped rendering full frame not needed. https://www.flickr.com/photos/136279...posted-public/

    I have a D7000 and D600. The Tamron 150-600 stays on the D7000 and my Tamron 24-70 stays on the D600

    I think if I was in your situation I'd keep the D7100 as my main birding camera. The D750 would be my general/landscape camera but also my low light wildlife camera.
    You can have all the reach in the world but if your shutter can't freeze the movement of an animal then you won't get the shot. That's where I think a camera with the low light performance of the D750 would come into its own, if you're shooting in woodland or around dusk I think being able to crank up the ISO more would probably outweigh any loss of reach vs the primal beast.

    @canuck257..I would keep the Tamzooka on the 7100 and get a lens for the D750 for landscapes. As for which lens? I have a 20mm Nikon-D lens that is a very nice wide angle for landscapes that I don't use much since I bought the Nikon 24-120mm lens. If you need a walkabout lens for your D750 that does nice landscapes as well and doesn't break the bank, I suggest the AFS- 24-120mm lens.

    It does not matter what camera one has at dusk or low light, if they are using a Tamron SP 150-600mm f/5-6.3, as this is no a low light lens.

    If I gave you my cam to use, the only way you would know it's not a D7100 is that the top LCD display is a little smaller on the D750. (plus mine makes a good cup of cappuccino on voice command)
