    re: Just about to drop the hammer on a D750

    Congratulations!

    I bought one this fall (bare body). I kept the user's manual on my nightstand and read and re-read it for months. It's still sitting there for when I want or need to do some review.

    It's a fun camera!

    Stay sharp,
    Bob

    The D750 is a very good camera. If it meets your needs now, it should do so for the foreseeable future, unless your sensor resolution requirements take a big jump up! The only thing I'd change in your lineup would be to get the Sigma Art 50mm f/1.4 instead of the Nikon lens, but that is a very small difference.

    Just a bit of advice from a long-time D750 user... Since you're processing your shots try using Highlight-Weighted metering for shots like that. The subject may look a little underexposed on the back of the camera, but the degree of clean shadow recovery you can get with the D750 is astounding.

    Congrats on the new purchase. I was really close to buying a D750 myself. I am sure you will enjoy it.

    I'm not retired, but if I were, I'd get a part time job to support my photography habit!
