Every time I go out with this new Nikon I am more and more impressed.
Here are 3 early morning shots taken at ISO 1600. I probably could have gone with 3200 and not lost a beat.
Thanks for looking and Happy New Year,
Steve

Two male American Pelicans preening in the sun. These two were about 150-200 yards away.

Thanks Dan,
I have two local friends whose wives have threatened to ban me from their homes if I don't stop showing their husbands my new equipment. :lol:
BTW, I have a used D80, D70s, and three used bikes I need to unload. Maybe we could have a group ebay deal or something.:lol:
I really do love this new Nikon. I started saving the minute I heard of it's release. I don't regret it for a second. :|

Here's wishing you all the best in the new year,
Steve

After demonstrating the superiority of your new equipment, you expect someone else to want to relieve you of those obsolete old junkers????? :O!:shock:!

Impressive shooting with the new camera, Steve. I also like #1 and it is very good at ISO 1600.Even thoughthe Pelicans are big birds, those shots, I think, turned out very good for that distance.
