In Topic: Considering upgrading

03 February 2018 - 12:17 PM

Sounds like I will keep an eye out for a used housing.  For some reason, inexpensive used housings for the D7100 seem few and far between.  I have only briefly looked a couple of times though. A new housing Aquatica housing for either the D7100 or D850 is ~$3000.  So unless I can find a used housing for less then 1/2 the price it does not make sense. 

 

If I was not planning on a D850 for my other uses, I would consider a different body.

Thank you for the answers so far.  As for bodies to house, it will either be my D7100 which I currently have, or the D850 I am going to be getting for the other type of photography I am expanding into.  

 

Of course money is always a factor, but so is longevity.  The D7100 is already a 5 year old camera, that is not to say it does not do an amazing job.  Unless I can get a used D7100 housing for probably at least less then 1/2 the price of a new one I am not sure it make sense.  Of course changing housing, and lenses gets more expensive, but it should have more longevity right?

 

I have been kicking around the idea of a 105mm, but I do like the flexibility the 60mm gives me.  I know that will change with the FX though, so I will be looking for something equivalent.
