D1H is still serving me well, I think

    I would love to have a D3. However, given what I shoot, how I shoot, my "market", and even if I HAD that kind of dough, I don't think I could justify the expenditure.

    I have no desire to shoot beyond high school. My "market" is the moms. And I like to shoot tight, real tight, too tight for some. :biggrin:

    The only way I can begin thinking about a D3 would be if I started lusting for the AFS 200mm f/2 for indoor swim. At that point, money would be better spent on a D3. Yes, no?

    Of course, I still have plenty of room to grow in my D1H as I'm not getting out of it all that it is capable of delivering.

    Just thinking "out loud."

  2. Use what works that is how I feel. Although I do have a D300 which is amazing. Anyways your shots look great from the D1h.
  3. Nice captures. Very impressed with the multifairous sports shot.
  4. Dennis,

    You have been and still are doing a very nice job with your gear. Remember, it's the mechanic not the tools that gets the job done! :smile:

    Thank you!

    This was a compilation of some of my better shots from the year. Looking forward to another year and, hopefully, more improvement.

    Steve, your encouraging words are much appreciated.

    All, thanks for looking.

    Yes, Dennis the D1H is serving you well. And like Steve said it's the mechanic and you produce some great shots with that body.

    BUT...usually when I think out loud I am usually close to buying something or trying to talk myself out of it...:biggrin::biggrin::biggrin:

    Go buy that D3 buddy!:smile:
