Default D3200

I picked up one of these to play with today and had some fun seeing what the little guy could do. The horses were shot with a 300 f4 and the fishing boat in the harbor with Tammys 28-75. The horses were cropped 100%.

Default D3200 with the Sigma 150-500

Played around with this combo for a while and wasnt all that impressed. Using auto focus on this lens eats up battery life quicker then the Nikon 300 f4. This lens is no speed demon when focusing to begin with and with this body it is more problematic unlike the 300 f4 which was noticably quicker to attain focus. Both the shots are right out of the camera at full resolution. The plane is at 150mm and the fisherman is 500mm. I find that turning off the info screen which by nature will activate everytime the shutter is depressed halfway to attain focus saves on the life of the battery. One is looking at around 250 to 300 captures before the battery starts to give out. Iam going to bet that if a smaller auto focus lens is used the number of captures will increase. Shooting at slower speeds with a monopod and the VR off allowed for a sharper picture when trying to get prop blur over handholding. The difference is noticed esspecially when cropping in tighter to check resolution.
