Teamed up with the D850 creates a behemoth of a combination of frames per second and Megapixels. A must have accessory for your D850 if you are a wildlife photographer. Framing vertical shots as well is rendered convenient with this add on.
An incredible lens, amazing reach, handhold threshold, excellent build quality and the flouride coating on the front element just keeps everything tidy and clean. Beautiful bokeh, sharpness combined with excellent range for birds and wildlife. My current primary wildlife lens.
One among the Nikon Trinity lenses, this super wide angle is my best buddy to capture amazing landscapes, cityscapes and wide angled frames. Although fairly old in regards to when it was launched, this lens is still so good that a replacement has not come for it. Highly recommend for nature and landscape photographers.
The everyday workhorse. The travel companion for any trip, the 24-70 2.8 is a must have lens in anyone’s arsenal. The lens is fast, sharp and with VR, chances of getting shaken images are almost low to none. Definitely recommend as the go-to and must-have lens for any photography professional.
Probably the best teleconverter from Nikon to-date. Works amazingly with my Nikon telephoto lenses producing sharp images even in not so favorable lighting. Only caveat is the loss of one-stop light which is expected from any teleconverter. I usually paid the Nikon 300mm lens with this and use that as my hiking gear and it works like a charm.
People might wonder why a wildlife photographer needs a flash. Well, a strong flash allows you to light up dark areas of the subject such as a bird sitting in the shade of trees and also enables the photographer to bring to life the bird’s beautiful plumage detail against a properly lit background. This is exactly what the SB-5000 can do. The wireless triggering capabilities of this flash with my D5 and D850 makes it a hassle-free and best-suited accessory on my hardcore birding trips.
