I seriously considered changing teams when the D850 came out, but I just couldn't afford it at the time. Canon was way behind for a while, but they're catching up in a big way now.

The 600mm focal length comes in very handy, but I actually take most of my action shots at 300-400mm. A bird in flight is really hard to find and follow at 600mm. I only use a tripod if I absolutely have to, mostly for astro or water.

I started out as a photographer in the sixties, but used my still portfolio to get into film school. I directed TV for thirty five years, which is like being a photographer using four cameras at once while a million people are watching you! LOL! 😂😂🤣 I met my wife in her family's professional B&W photolab. It runs in our family too.

I turn 70 next month.
