The bottom one with the darker hue and more saturated colours (At least it looks like it - my colour vision is impaired big time) packs a lot more punch - to my eyes, anyway.

I agree, the bottom version is superior.
Nice and punchy, better contrast, a nice saturated look and feel, aesthetically I prefer it.

thanks guys.  wow, pretty much everyone prefers my edit over my VSCO filter edit.  Even my non-photographer friends.  This comes at a relief since all of wedding photography seems to be going in the VSCO direction.  VSCO, tiny people and huge landscapes, and centered couples.

With as good of dynamic range that my D750 has it was tempting to push the shadows a lot more, but I'm trying to get away from doing that.

If I were to buy another nikon that is the one I would want. If i did not lose so much on my D610 and D7100 I may have considered but both those cameras are excellent for me right now.

don't be too disappointed at not having the D750.  It is better than the D610 in focusing but not as much as I thought.  The auto-WB is definitely better, but the detail is better on the D610 at high noise and it has just as good dynamic range as the D750.  I had two new D610's to sell and I was surprised at how low they sold for as well...such an amazing deal.  

 

Oh, and the significantly deeper grip of the D750 is a must have for me I must say.  Using the D610 for hours at a time with heavy lenses/flash made my fingers numb and stiff.  

 

A couple more from yesterday:

Thats good to know and my D7100  is my sports Camera for track and field plus the camera I most like to use with long lens because of the crop . Hard to get 600MM lenses these day and the 300MM F4 Primes does that for me with the 1.3 crop . Loing that kind of money on the D610 would not make sense to me. Some great bargains around for D610m buyers.

I admit to being the world's biggest non-technical camera guy. redface.gif
Can anyone explain to me (and this is a real question, I'm NOT trolling, honest!) why I should upgrade from my D90 to a D7100 or better?
Please pardon my ignorance....redface.gif
I do enjoy the realitively low weight of the D90.

Better  autofocus and 24 MP makes it a big improvement over the D90 also faster for sport shooting. Her eis what they said when the d7000 came out and the 7100 is better yet.

 

Here are some differences between Nikon D7000 and D90:

  1. The first and the most important difference between the D7000 and D90 is the sensor. Nikon D7000 has a 16.2 Megapixel sensor, while the D90 has a 12.3 Megapixel sensor.
  2. The new sensor on the D7000 also has different specifications – its ISO range is from 100 too 6400 in native mode and up to 25,600 in expanded or “boost” mode, while D90 goes from ISO 200 to 3200 with a boost to ISO 6400, a difference of one full stop in native and two full stops in expanded mode.
  3. Base ISO on the Nikon D7000 is 100, while it is 200 for Nikon D90.
  4. The new Expeed II processor on the Nikon D7000 is capable of full HD (1920x1080p) @ 24 fps (frames per second), while D90 can only go up to 720p (1280x720p) @ 24 fps. D7000 can also shoot 720p at 30, 25 and 24 fps and 424p at 30 and 25 fps; Nikon D90 only records video at 24 fps. In addition, the D7000 can capture movies continuously up to 20 minutes, while D90 is limited to just 5 minutes.
  5. Nikon D7000 has a better construction with top and back covers made of magnesium alloy, while D90 is plastic.
  6. Nikon D7000 has a 100% viewfinder coverage, while Nikon D90 has a 96% viewfinder coverage.
  7. Nikon D7000 can take the new SDXC cards with capacities larger than 32GB, while Nikon D90 is currently only compatible with SDHC cards up to 32GB.
  8. Nikon D7000 comes with a new TTL exposure metering with 2016-pixel RGB sensor, while D90 has the older 420-pixel RGB sensor.
  9. Nikon D7000 can shoot up to 1/8000th of a second, while D90 is limited to 1/4000.
  10. The Nikon D7000 employs a dual slot SD storage system for writing, while Nikon D90 can only take one SD card in a single slot.
  11. Weight-wise, both weigh about the same, with the D7000 being slightly heavier by about 70 grams.
  12. Nikon D7000 shoots images faster at 6 fps, while D90 shoots at 4.5 fps in continuous mode.
  13. Size-wise, both cameras are almost exactly the same, with the Nkon D7000 measuring 132x105x77mm versus 132x103x77mm of D90.
  14. When it comes to AF system and focus points, Nikon D7000 is superior with 39 focus points and 9 cross-type sensors, while D90 employs 11 focus points and only 1 cross-type sensor.
  15. Nikon D7000 has a lot more White Balance options for more accurate WB control than D90.
  16. Nikon D7000 is controlled remotely using MC-DC2 cable via the GPS socket, while D90 can be controlled with the ML-L3 wireless infrared remote control unit.
  17. The price difference between the two cameras is significant – Nikon D7000 is priced at $1,199, while Nikon D90 price has dropped to $739.95.

Thanks for the reply,
for me, personally, the big upgrades are:
- the higher resolution
- the 100% viewfinder, there are times when 96% drives me nuts
- the exposure meering
- the focus points and focus speed upgrades
Like I said, I'm more of an amateur photographer and less of a technical photo geek. It's a bit odd, I obsess over stereo gear and sweat the details, but use cameras without geting technical.

Definitely for me the D7100 is excellent and I use it with my long lenses for sport shooting. Excellent  and fast. Only drawback is buffer can fill up fast so there is a delay but speed is evident and has the better 54 point Autofocus system. I sometime revert to jpeg to eliminate that. D610 indoors though because it is much better in low light

post #5816 of 5817
I typically shoot with
a 24 mm f/2.8
a 35 mm f/1.8
and a Macro 60 mm f/2.8
a pretty basic set up. redface.gif

I very rarely use a zoom lens, because I find I spend too much time zooming back and forth.

Thos would work well with the D7100 or D610 except the 35MM DX on the D610-.
