Hi guys, i'm thinking of buying the d7100 and pairing it with a Sigma 50mm 1.4,  but i'm torn with the other combination which is d7000 paired with a Sigma 85mm 1.4.

What do you think is better?  based on henry's prices, each camera/lens pair is roughly 71k which is exactly what my budget is. i have used both sigma and prefer the 85mm but with the improvements of the d7100 over d7000, i can't decide. d7100 + 85mm would be way over my budget :P

I'm about to take the latter--D7000 with Sigma 85mm f/1.4. :)

Care to share sir why you choose the d7k/Sigma 85mm combo?  Is it because of the lens? thanks! btw, most of the time i take pictures in low-light situations

What kind of low-light situations?

To me, the answer to your question would lie on what you shoot and which focal length suits it best.

If I was going to make a choice and this would be my first kit and my major concern is low-light usability, I would go for the D7100 and the 50mm. It's AF is better in low-light, the sensor should be cleaner especially if you output them in lower resolutions, and a 50mm would be easier to handhold. The 85mm feels like so long in DX so you'll need faster shutter speeds and very good technique. It's very nice for portraits though.

Usually inside a room with ambient light. or better yet, think of a bar with dim lights or liking taking a walk in the park at night with not that many street lights. the focal length is not a problem as i have tried both and liked both of them.

i'll be using it primarily for taking portraits. And i agree, the 85mm is good in taking portraits and i prefer that more than the 50mm but any would do just great for me.  Just wondering what body to pair it with.  :)

thanks!

If portraits are really what you're after, then the 85 would be good. You'll be using DX though so the 50 will also be good for portraits. Your other criteria though is low-light so between these two lenses and I assume in the absence of a flash, a 50 will let you shoot at lower shutter speeds than the 85. Not to mention, you'll have more leeway in positioning yourself inside a room with the 50 because the 85 with a DX body might be too tight unless you're shooting in a large room. :)

D7000 + 50 1.8G + 85 1.8G na lang. Best of both worlds. The 1.8G Nikkors are sharp wide open and the difference between 1.4 and 1.8 isn't that big. Bokeh can certainly be smoother with the Sigma 85 1.4 but there's more to bokeh than the max aperture and there's more to portraits than creamy bokeh. :)

Nope, if i can't get any sigma when i buy the camera, i will definitely buy it before the year ends just to satisfy my itch. i understand what you're saying with there's more to bokeh than the max aperture, etc. but my decision is fixed on only those two. otherwise, i'd be burning more money than i initially intended.  besides i've used the two sigmas and the nikkors you suggested and i still liked the sigma over them :) it's just my preference.

anyhow, thanks for your input on the d7100+50mm. i'll be considering that. and you're right, no flash as one of the main subject will be my newly-born baby. :P

I was thinking of that as well as i owned a d7000 almost 2 years ago and experienced that. right now, im leaning on the d7100+50mm combo. Thanks!

Scratch resistant but not shatter proof...it's better safe than to be sorry.
