Hi All

I'm new to the forum and would like to ask advice on what camera and lenses you would buy, if you had say, £5000 to spend? I'm not a beginner but not a professional either. I photograph wildlife, sport, landscape mainly. I'd like something that has wi-fi and preferably full frame. Looking at a camera body and a couple of lenses at least, one "walk around" lens and one telephoto definitely. I'm looking to upgrade from my Pentax K 5ii. Love the look of the D850, also looked at the D750

 

Would love to hear from you and hear your recommendations and experiences!

 

Thanks all!

 

I'm in the UK

At this point I would wait to see what Nikon's mirrorless will be about. If it is anything like the D850 it will be a very compelling camera. Hopefully they don't price themselves out of the ballpark.

I would also wait and see for two reasons.

  • The mirrorless seems to be close to release. If they do things right, this could well be the best they have done in the prosumer segment since the FM and FE in the 70-s.
  • The D750 is overdue for a replacement. I would like to see at least the specifications of the new model in this segment before deciding.
