Quote: Gollum, Lord of the Rings The Two Towers

Last week I ran out of patience and I just did it: I purchased the Nikon D500! It's so pretty :D I was afraid it would be too bulky for my small hands but it isn't. The grip feels great and it's much less heavy compared with my brothers Nikon D7000. The Nikon D500 is so fast and a real ISO-killer. Perfect for indoor sports photography (which I haven't tried yet..). Another feature I absolutely love is the tilting touchscreen. With live view on I don't need to kneel down on the wet ground. I just tilt the screen and touch to focus. 

On the advice of the shop assisitent I have chosen the Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4 to be my first very own lens. It's called a macro lens since it's able to focus from 22cm, but it's not 1:1. So in the future I will probably purchase a lens which is 1:1, but for now I am very happy with this lens. I like the range and the bokeh is beautiful. And most important: the Nikon D500 and the Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4 seem to be a great combination. 

Besides the camera body and lens I purchased a filter, a camera bag, a XQD card and reader and a cleaning cloth. All together it was an expensice affair so far. But I do feel like I am missing one very important accessory still: a tripod. I don't want to put my precious on the dirty ground. Problem is, I absolutely hate lugging around with heavy and big clunky things. I like to pack light when I go out for a hike. So I am considering a Gorillapod, the Joby GorillaPod SLR Zoom to be exact. But I am a bit shivery about the stability of that thing with my big expensive camera on it.. Anyone any experience with the Joby GorillaPod SLR Zoom?

New photos coming soon!

Great shots deserve appreciation ;) really jealous on your lens: focal length 500mm!
MaresaSinclair Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2017
It's a sigma 50-500 lens.  Not a very expensive lens for the focal lens, but it works well enough for what I need.
