Hi Jim, really good to see you here and look forward to some great images.   My gear list is much shorter these days and I am not shooting as many birds the past few years ( not as much about) and my abilities seem to be dropping with age  :( .  Trying to improve in less demanding areas but only so-so success  ;) .   This site can answer just about any question re: gear and technique.
Cheers,
Tom

Hi Tommie.

Great to see you here as well. I should mention that Tommie and I go way back on Nikonians.

I don't know how to respond to specific responses yet so thanks to those who welcomed me.

Hi all.

I should mention that I just acquired a used D810. I had avoided the D8xx series as I was hesitant because of the large file sizes. My latest computer has 32 gb ram and 6 terabytes of hard drive so it seems like it will be ok so far.
