    Pulled the trigger on a D750

    I couldn't resist the D750 after the price dropped to $999 yesterday. I have the D5200 and cannot wait to see the difference between the two.

    I purchased the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 28-300mm lens with it and already have the Tamron 35-150mm Di that I have been using on the D5200. I am thinking about the sister lens to the Tamron, the 17-35mm Di.

    If anyone has any input into what else might match up with the D750 (lenses, accessories, etc.), I would appreciate the help.

    Thanks.

    Congratulations on getting a great camera! I never used a D5200 so am not sure about a direct comparison, but there is definitely a difference in sensors between my D7200 and D750. I assume your D5200 uses the menus for setting changes. The ability to use the buttons and wheels (command and sub-command dials) on the D750 is a big advantage.

    Are you interested in macro? Some people use a Tamron 90mm while others use either the Sigma or Nikon 105mm. Any plans to try long exposures? If so, maybe consider getting a 9- or 10-stop neutral density filter. You'd need a tripod or some type of non-moving support for that.

    What type of strap are you using? My suggestion is to ditch the one that comes with the camera. No need to advertise to hoodlums. Lol. There are so many accessories that come to mind - the most important for me are either a microfiber cleaning cloth or a Giottos rocket blower.

    Have fun with it!

    What kind of photography are you doing?

    All the lenses you have mentioned I believe are zooms. You might like a fast wide prime. There is the 50/1.8 and the 35/1.8 for example.

    You might like a speedlight. The flash tube on my SB-600 finally failed after ~6 years. I replaced the speedlight with the Flashpoint R2 or also called the V860II I think. Adorama has it on sale now for just $120. I prefer Nikon's speedlights but the Flashpoint has been fine. And $120 for a full featured speedlight is another great deal.

    Thanks for the help.

    I preordered a Cotton Carrier strap setup that should be coming in January. Looks interesting.

    I've been interested in macro and have taken a few pics with the new camera and lens yesterday that are not quite macro in perspective. You've tempted me into thinking about a macro lens

    Congrats and welcome! A very nice upgrade from your D5200.

    Reviewing your signature, it appears you need to pickup some FX glass. What's the lens budget? Certainly check out the 50mm f1.8G for sure, a great value prime lens for sure.

    I took your advice and asked Santa fo the Nikon 50mm 1.8G

    I am going to save up for the Tamron 17-35mm Di and either the Tamron 90mm or the Nikon 105mm. I haven't done enough research on either one yet to decide.

    Thanks!

    Get the older 105 "D" AF version for about $150 nobody really uses them (macro mode) in AF and VR is not worth the huge upcharge

    don't need the $600 new ones.
