I was processing some pics and I am impressed by the hi ISO performance I'm seeing.

This shot was taken under some dismal lighting conditions.

80-200mm f/2.8 Lens on a Nikon D7000 - at 125mm (187mm -35mm equiv)
Manual Exposure
f /2.8
1/200 second
Shot at ISO 3200
Processed in LR 4.3

I was about 100+ feet from the stage too.

Impressive. Looks like blaming the camera for any future bad pictures is no longer an option. ;)

the noise handling has gotten sooo much better over the years. my first digital camera used floppy disk to store the images. even at ISO 200 the noise was evident and ISO 400 was totally unusable for low light, nothing but grainy images.
everything is better with bacon!!!

BK, is it reasonable to assume that congratulations are in order?

You may be proud of me too.  I am finally getting a cow, I mean a DSLR, for Christmas.  Let the lens purchases begin!

Good choice. Do you know which one?

Thanks for the congrats.

Only ISO 400. First purchase after the T3i with 18-55 kit lens was a 50mm portrait lens.  Highly rated and cheap at $110.  Hand held shot.  Lots to learn!



Telephoto will be a whole 'nuther price range.

Can't go wrong with either Canon's or Nikon's 50. Both are cheap and very sharp. Welcome to the money pit. ;)
