Very impressive qaz393. But, if you did not slam things, perhaps you would not need so many back ups!! LOL Dare I ask if the body used to take the photo was another D800? Your photo makes me wish I had purchased the 70-200 f2.8 yesterday as well. I have a Sigma 70-200mm OS version that serves me well enough though.
i used my older d7000 lol.

Sorry to go a bit off topic here but I'm a new photographer trying to learn to take pics during trips, special occasions, etc. and need people's advice. Which lens should I get: the nikon's 35mm 1.8g or 40mm micro 2.8g? I got a d5100 body and before I go heavier in investment I want to get practice. I am leaning on the 40mm cuz of its features but I'm wondering if it can still produce a comparable quality under low lighting.
Would also appreciate arguments for getting the 35mm over the 40. Price wise there's only a $50ish in difference so it's a wash for me. As well I know there are way better lens for macro out there but i would appreciate a comparable between these two. Thanks in advance all!

Any1 got an updated list of their stock?

I'm looking to get into photography, I see you put d5100 is for 370, I think retailers got it on sale for like $550 with a basic lens, is it worth it I just buy it brand new with longer warranty and lens. Or is it still smarter to get refurb + a specific lens I want.

Any recommendations on a camera to get looking at 500-750 range for a body+ lens brand new budget, I don't mind used but just saying the price range I'm aiming for new or equivalents that are used but cheaper of course...
Also if you know any sick deals let me know (since we are on RFD), open to suggestions.
