It’s a new year and with it I was rewarded with the opportunity to shoot with a new photography format. I have always wanted to see what one could do with a full frame sensor and having had some experience shooting 35 mm film in the summer, I was eager to see what the digital 35 mm is like.
With help from my parents (I love you guys!) I was able to purchase a Nikon D750 with the AF-S 24-120 mm f/4G lens. I also splurged a bit and got the AF-S 35 mm f/1.4G and AF-S 85 mm f/1.4G lenses. I was excited to see the photos from this new kit!
It has been a few months since I first started to shoot seriously with the Nikon D750. It is a fantastic camera. I think this is the best model Nikon has produced since the D700 and it is a worthy replacement. There are many people who would disagree with me wholeheartedly due to the menu and button layout of the D750, but I think all of the changes are for the better.
There are many aspects of the Nikon D750 that makes it the best contender for the full frame DSLR segment. Many of its compromises are specs that I don’t care for. I would encourage everyone to read Ross Harvey’s review in-depth. I think it is the best review on the web that addresses all of the camera’s minor shortcomings and ingenuity.
I enjoyed shooting with the Nikon D750 so much that I hunted down a second one on Boxing Day. Happy holidays!
