I have a Nikon D300, I use a f/1.8 35mm lens most of the time. Also have the the 18-55mm and 55-200mm lenses. I like how cameras plummet in value faster than cell phones, I don’t have any need for the latest and greatest.

I could use a new high MP camera. I'm poor these days and shoot with a Nikon D3400. I use the cheap 70-300mm but shoot a lot of sports. It is right on the edge of just being enough to shoot football, softball, baseball, volleyball and basketball. I do sports graphics for my girls' basketball team.

Another parent has a new mirrorless that is about the same MP but when I use his pics, it does such a good job of spreading the colors across transitions that my graphics suffer. I actually get better graphic pictures from my $500 setup than his $7K setup.

I'm taking pics just to get it done and have had several professionals give me creds. In sports, understanding the game and catching the action goes a long way vs, just pointing, shooting and then cropping. I'm so far from professionals but I do frame sports action pretty well.

Also, I take single exposures and don't do the multiple. The professionals are busy deleting pics from their cameras and saving the main one and missing action.

Uh, I still have my Nikon D80? lol probably time for a new body, although I'm thinking mirrorless.

True that. I picked my 100-400mm used (and it was rebuilt prior to sale) for a really good price. I wouldn't mind upgrading the 20D to a newer body but it's still a great work horse that takes a beating.

Also, if you have an instagram account and want to share your pics, post up your tag. mine's acardena13

It is more camera than I have skills to utilize, but I enjoy pretending I know what I’m doing.

I bought it with the “premium” kit lens, 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM seen in the photo, and I use it more than any other lenses.

other lenses include:
50mm f/1.8 STM
35mm f/2.8 Macro IS STM
70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM
