Okay it’s important to note that I didn’t wake up and decide to buy a d750 because my 6D was lacking in image quality. I have been extremely happy over the last year with the 6D and what it has produced. So happy in June I bought a second one as a backup and to shoot video on. A few weeks ago I flew to Houston to shoot a Day in the Life and I used a combination of a Mark III and a 6D. Using that Mark III reminded me of what I had lost going from my Sony a77 to a Canon 6D, all those glorious focus points. After using a Mark III for a weekend I was pretty close to buying one, but before I could pull the trigger the reviews on the Nikon d750 started to pour in. At first the “flippy screen” caught my eye. Then the awesome high ISO images and post-production recovery in this d750 review had me drooling. I couldn’t sleep. I was reading every review I could get my hands on. I finally decided to just go buy one, jump feet first if you will, but on the way to the store I stopped by ProPhoto to see if they would have one to rent anytime soon. Perhaps trying to stomp down this notion of using 3 different brands in a single year. Because let’s face it, that is crazy.
A week in and this camera continues to surprise me. Let me say a few things about what I love.

What I still hate
Really haven’t had any significant time yet to take images for a review. I am hoping to get one out next week. So here is just one image from my hospital newborn photography session yesterday.
