Default New D100 and HAPPY!

Well, I finally did it. I acquired today:

Nikon D100 body
Nikkor 24-85mm f2.8-4 D lens
SB-80DX Flash
Lexar 1 Gig CF memeory card
Manfrotto/ Bogen Joystick Tripod Head #3265
Manfrotto/ Bogen 329 RC4 3D Tripod Head
Manfrotto/ Bogen Tripod #3021 & #3265
Numerous accessories

Coming soon:
Nikkor 70-200mm F2.8 AFS/ VR Zoom lens
Nikkor 85mm F1.4D IF
Nikkor 105mm AF-DC AFS
Studio Lighting of unknown determination

Well, my first 5 pictures SUCKED! I didn't read the manual and didn't try too hard. The next 20 (After 20 minutes looking at the manual) wowed me and I am excited. I am heading out to continue testing this weekend. I hope to post my first pics afterwards.

I want to thank everyone posting their personal experiences with all the various products, you helped me greatly. Now, I have to pay attention to more settings, techniques, etc. for the D100. Sounds like work and is actually noth'n but fun!!!

THANK YOU!

I thought you were gonna buy the D2h from your comments... :lol: j/k! Hope you enjoy the D100 as much as I enjoy mine The 70-200 AF-S is VERY fast, its AF is faster than my 28-70 AF-S!! It's just a sweet freakin' lens!!!! :twisted:

Good for you.... I had D100 and D1H.

I noticed you say come soon for Studio light.

Well, DON'T FORGET Light Meter handheld such as
Goosip or Polaris or others.

I don't like D100 built-in light meter with flash never 100% perfect. but if you use Light Meter for flash distance adjust. Love it!

Enjoy your own test and experience weekend.
