, but is it possible that the Nikon D5100 has better image quality and low light performance than my T2i?

Without a doubt.

Mike, it's possible the 5100 has better IQ and low light performance, it wouldn't cost you much to find out and if it doesn't I have a feeling you recover what you spent pretty easy, maybe even make a few bucks.

Got my used 70-300VR off Fredmiranda. Ad said it came with bag (no box though). I get it today and there is no bag. Send him a PM asking if he could just mail it in a regular envelope. Responds and says that it turns out the bag was for a 16-85, not the 70-300 and he forgot to take that out of the ad before I bought it. :confused:

But otherwise this lens is soo much sharper than my 55-200VR. Very happy with the lens itself. Can't wait to get out and try it outside of the backyard.

as far I as I know, I have 2 70-300mm VR here, there's no bag inside the box.

Mine came with one and it was a factory 'refurb'.

What's your thought>?

if you want to believe DxOMark's sensor tests, then EVEN the D5000 has better IQ than the T2i.

I will get to try out my D800 during an engagement session tomorrow. I will only have 85 f/1.8, but my Canon stuff will fill the rest of the range for now.

how do you like that 85 1.8 on the D800? i've seen posts elsewhere that the 85 1.4 was disappointing.

I have been shooting a Noct on a d800E and love it. I am amazed at how easy it is to focus wide open. The following image is nothing to write home about concerning composition but it is indicative of the bokeh possible with the Noct. Note the natural vignetting wide open. Not a landscape lens ... or is it?

Once I get some free time I plan on creating a portfolio of portraits.

Anyone with experience with this?
http://www.amazon.com …-connection/dp/B005PCDS​BQ (external link)

Just wrote my Amazon review on this product.

"I have a D800 that works flawlessly until I put this RF shutter release on. It works for a few minutes and then eventually the whole system locks up. I need to remove the battery and turn off the receiver to get it back. If I just remove the battery without turning off the receiver then my top LCD just blinks Err. When it works it's great but the lock-ups would turn anyone off of this product. Go a different route. "
