The Nikon D5300 is a perfect example.

Nikon D7100 and Nikon 70-200mm f4 Lens: Action-friendly DSLR and lens combo for under $2500

For those looking to photograph wildlife, sports or other action without breaking the bank, you can’t do better than the Nikon D7100 DSLR coupled with the new Nikon 70-200mm f/4 lens.

Nikon stirs things up with new 24MP 6fps Nikon D7100 DSLR with no anti-aliasing filter: all for $1199

Nikon D7100 product shotNikon has announced its expected update to its venerable Nikon D7000. The Nikon D7100 features a fairly predictable resolution of 24MP, very respectable for a prosumer camera, and as much or more than most users need. What will surprise most people, though, is that Nikon has left off the anti-aliasing filter (which they refer to as the OLPF). Previously the only Nikon camera with this modification – that allows slightly sharper images at the cost of increased danger of moiré artifacts – was the specialty Nikon D800e…. Read more »
