More downtime afforded an opportunity to poke through some old shots, seeing how old gear performed in comparison to what I currently use. The one below (Orange-Cheeked Waxbill) was taken with a D500 and Sigma’s original DSLR version of its 100-400mm Contemporary lens. Not much to complain about . . .
. . . except weight. Seeing that I somehow get better shots (and opportunities) with lighter, smaller gear, I’d avoid a brick body like the D500 nowadays. Nikon’s current cameras using the same sensor also aren’t as noisy. But for that time, a lot to like . . .
