Focus tracking using AF-C for dynamic subjects in low light. Somewhat well accepted. But user skill can mitigate many circumstances

Very capable for any other type of shooting. The sensor is very nice, can hold its own among the latest crop sensor cameras.

Thanks Roy. Do I need to look model in cannon also. Any good compatible model. Some experts says cannon is much better than Nikon

you would need to go beyond the 45k budget. But the 18-140 will help you with a wide range of focal lengths.
Thanks Condor. D5200 with 18-140 quotes around 51K in amazon. Too much for me

Things been quiet here, an argument should liven things. Which experts, for which body, in what context?

Edit: nothing like Canon better than Nikon or vice versa.

I have a D3X too, and I can tell you that the D7000 can hold its own against that camera quite easily. Kid you not. The only places where differences become large enough to notice is noise performance above ISO 800 and really dim light.

All e-retailers give a receipt from an authorised retailer normally in small town. My D3300 has a receipt from Varanasi and the 35mm F1.8 from some where in MP. I checked and found that they were authorised Nikon retailers.

Had a short birding session which lasted about 20 minutes today. The 600 mm reach should definitely serve me better in future.

A long shot, cropped for composition. Captured this Shrike which was on top of a tree from about 15m or so.

Are you planning to use the 150- 600 with a ball head? A monopod or a gimbal head (or even beanbags) would be better for shooting wildlife, if you do want to use support.

Fyi, the Tamron is pretty handholdable as per reviews and field tests from many nature shooters. I have no issues in handholding the Nikon 80-400mm afs- that is 400 gm lighter than the Tamron - at less than 1/100 for sharp shots. The Tamron's vc is supposed to be very good.

Hi nilanjan, yes as far as I have read ball head is good I suppose. Maybe a tripod convertible to monopod. I need to use it even for long shutter speed. Yes, have read about the stability of tamron. Any suggestions on these lines?

Please give me suggestions!
Looking for used ,under 25k DSLR for outdoor and closeup video recording. Which brand/camera/lens apt?
Audio quality no bar!
Please keep in mind that I'm a photography/videography amateur so the learning curve is very steep.

Please also plan to budget a decent amount for the ball head apart from the tripod itself. Ball heads can be costly and in some cases can end up costlier than the tripods themselves!!

For video I suggest getting the D3300 with its kit lens. It will be marginally over your budget, but you get
. 50P and 60P video
. 6FPS still shooting
. Better high ISO than the less expensive models.

I have shot a few videos with my D3300 using both the kit 18-55 as well as the 35mm F1.8DX. For close ups in good light the 18-55 is fantastic. For low light at f1.8 the 35mm beats most of the lenses while taking a video.
