My gear wishlist

This is the gear I would like to upgrade to, I’m fairly realistic about this so it’s not the most expensive gear, but I think it’s great value for money considering what you’re getting.

Nikon D7100

Nikon D7100

I’ve been doing on my research on my next camera and come to the conclusion that this is the best fit for me. It is Nikon’s highest performing mid frame camera, at the upper end of their entry level DSLRs.

Nikon 18-140mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR AF-S DX NIKKOR

Nikon, Nikkor

AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-140 f/3.5-5.6 G

This would be the first lens I would buy, it is versatile with far more zoom than your standard 18-55mm kit lenses. From using my 18-55mm I have found there are situations where I have needed more zoom (macros and nature photos etc) and as I can’t yet afford to own/carry two bodies, this lens would cover the majority of situations that I currently shoot.

Nikon 50mm f/1.8G AF-S NIKKOR

AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G

This lens or the f/1.4 would be my next purchase. Known as the nifty fifty lens these lens are particularly good for low light due to their high f/stop, portraits as well as bokeh style photos. In addition these lenses are generally very affordable.

Manfrotto MKC3-H01

Manfrotto MKC3-H01

This tripod is a lightweight, ideal first tripod. It features a ball head and a really convenient roll switch to allow you to move the head as well as Manfrotto’s Photo-Movie switch which allows you to easily switch between a setting which allows you to pan left and right for movies and one which allows free movement for photos. It is very affordable, JB Hi-Fi has the best price I’ve seen on it anywhere.
