Currently the D750 is £1600 new, like @Livin The Dream says the D810 replacement is likely to be £3k+. The biggest factor on price is going to be how well the value of the pound fairs, that's been the cause of price increases over the last year. This time last year the d750 was around £1385 UK new ones that at £1590. I honestly can't see a price drop happening the D750 when it's likely to be half the price of the replacement D810. Look at the new d7500 and older D7200 to see what's happened when a new model was introduced, no price drops by the looks of it.

Let's be honest, the new D8*0 will be priced >£3,000 and so a grey D750 at half that price is a great deal. Depends what's really important to you. Coming from a D90 what lenses have you? If you have £3k to spend I'd buy a nice lens or two to go with a 750.
I have a sigma 17-70 and tokina 11-16mm so nothing compatible. Would probably get a cheap 50mm to start off with

Do you use it for Astrophotgraphy? If so, is the 2.4 enough for you?
I have done but as I don't have a clue and they turned out crap, saying that, there is a guy on my fb that uses it for astro and all seems OK, 15 to 17 secs max though. 2.4 is enough imo unless you have lots more £'s to spend on a 1.4/1.8.
Don't forget that the 750 handles high iso really well so no problem there.

Heres one I took a short while ago, no idea on the ID of the spider but it has boxing gloves on.
Was on the bedroom wall, the O/H didnt want it in so after this, off it went out.

Saw a few insects and spiders I've never seen before today.

Not sure what this fella is? I'm guessing it was about 12mm in length and about 2mm wide.

Not sure what this spider is, but it was smaller than the wolf spiders I've been shooting recently, guessing about 10-12mm in length including the legs.

Meet my parents new fluffy friend - pretty much an exposure nightmare on the hottest day of the year so far ha.

The second one is at ISO 5000! And the last one is the 58 wide open, I'm loving this lens already. A great combo

@snerkler - yes quite a lot due to the harsh sunlight. Should of shot underexposed really
Sometimes highlights will clip, it's just the nature of exposure. I used to do what you did and drag the highlights right down but I realised that it gives a very muted looking image. I tend not to change the highlights too much these days (helps to get the exposure right of course ;)) but if there's an area that is causing particularly bad clipping I tend to brush in highlight and/or whites reduction in so not to affect the tonal appearance of the whole image. Of course you have to be subtle with the brushes too.

Nah, usual shooting in aperture priority with exp comp to suit. Light was all over the place and he wasn't for posing.

The second one should have been a little lower in ISO really as still had min shutter at 320 - usually have set at 200 unless I'm shooting something quick.

Few shots of a jumping spider eating breakfast this morning. Can't believe it, never seen one of these before then see one two days running. These things are SMALL, about 4-5mm in length. Here is having breakfast, god knows how small the fly is :eek:
These are pretty much 1:1 crops of 1:1 macro :eek:

I thought I would ask how long do D750's usually last after getting their first error code? I was out this morning and the first image taken came up with err in the viewfinder after taking it. The camera didn't lock up and it did take an image that was slightly over exposed but useable. I'm off to stay on skomer in a few weeks and it would be a pain if it failed whilst their. There isn't time to send it away for the shutter issue before going. I've been putting off sending it in until I actually had a problem, typically it comes up a few weeks before the skomer trip (being a solely photo trip and being stuck on the island for 2 days no camera wouldn't be as much fun).

I'm on latest Sierra and latest CC whatever they are (not on pc at mo) Seems to be a known issue reading that thread. They will update not at some point, at least mine has stopped crashing since the last update when syncing across multiple files, that was doing my melon in!

Odd that it works on mine then. You do mean if you got to HSL and click the little cross thing and then place this over a specific part of the image you can drag it up and down on the image to change saturation, hue etc don't you?

Yes. I'm sure it worked the other day for
me and the update was a few weeks back? I'll have a look tonight, enjoying this weather
