    Nikon D810

    Completely agree - this is the D700 replacement and that Nikon won't be making a D300 replacement. They haven't released any new pro DX glass to suggest they will and if you want a DX pro Nikon, nikon will want you to use the DX mode in the D810.

    Nikon D810

    Fair enough, i only saw the release stating NX-D was meant to replace NX2.... I personally use Adobe Camera Raw - i find for my workflow its easier, but can appreciate that Nikons own software would no doubt be a bit more capable for NEFs

    Nikon D810

    I believe that is because they have a new release of the software?

    Nikon D810

    I held off from upgrading my D700 when the D800/E came out. I think now is the time. I will have to compare how prices stabilise with respect to D800E before deciding what makes better sense, but heck the gearhead in me will no doubt want the D810.....

    Why aren't you shooting Pentax?

    I'm currently obsessing over the 645Z, for me this is access to something i could never aspire to a few yrs ago. Now to start saving and i could be shooting Pentax soon :)

    Best compact travel tripod, just

    I recently took my 525 on holiday and have to say very impressed with it. Light and easy enough to get into position and happy enough with the stability. Only slight annoyance is total height, would prefer 15-20cm more....but highly recommended!

    Lens for a D700

    I have the Nikkor 28-105, if you use it in good light and step it down a bit its a lovely lens. I find the rendering more pleasant than the 85 and 28 1.8 G that I have but its not as sharp. The 24-85 VR is also not a bad option.

    Good point Johnny. Thanks all for the info. I'm in a lucky position, I live in Holland and there is a retailer relatively close to me that is fully stocked so I may pop over on the weekend for a look at their range :)

    Thanks as well Johnny - it seems as if the 427 is a bit more practical than the one Ray has, but either look pretty good tripods.

    The ballhead is always a question mark with smaller brands, but it looks decent. The only 'issue' I can see with this tripod is the working height of 100cm but may not be an issue for many people and I guess a compromise to get the tripod to a decent size. @Hotshots - I'm not necessarily on a...

    Great stuff - I've got one eye on my trip to Sri Lanka end March and something like this could be 'perfect' :)

    Would be interested to hear your impressions after putting it through its paces! Did you get the kit version? After the Gitzo (insane prices), Redged looks to be the best bet so will be following your views!

    Ricoh GR / CoolPix A / RX100?

    I have a GR waiting in the post office when I return home! Did a bit of research and these are basically my thoughts: I eventually settled on the GR simply because it would offer a way of shooting that is more unfamiliar to me. I would be fairly familiar with the A as a Nikon shooter and so in...
