Postby LUKEJOHNSON » Wed Oct 12, 2011 11:52 am

Wondering if anyone uses a D5100 for spotting and whether it is suitable or other camera in the same
Price range are better :D PS I WILL BE USING NIKON 70-300MM VR LENS!!

Thanks,

Luke

I use the Canon 600D which is in a similar price range and it's excellent!

If you already have the NIKON 70-300 lens, then I would stick to NIKON.
I use NIKON gear and will be upgrading my body soon, so would also like to hear what other spotters
with newer NIKON body"s think.

Hi Wayne,

Just got the D5100, it is an excellent camera and very similar to the Canon 600D.
It is one of the lower end Nikon cameras but the value for money is excellent!!

My 2 cents worth.....I have a Nikon D5100 with a VR55-300 lens. Took it to the US last year and did the Aviation Nation
Airshow at Nellis AFB and AMARG,Arizona whilst in the US. I am very happy with the Camera and Lens. I looked hard at
Canon and Nikon. It really is a matter of personal choice. Both brands are very good,except the standard Canon lens is
ordinary,you may have to get a L series lens and much $$$$,the standard Nikon Camera/Lens is great.Again my 2 cents
worth.

Regards Mark
