The wife and I are going to the big flower show in Philadelphia and I can't decide which camera to take. The wife will be using my Canon SL2 with an EF-S 18-200 lens. I was thinking about taking my 5D IV with the 28-300L or my D7200 with Nikkor 28-300 attached or my M50 with the 28-300L attached. I used the 5D IV / 28-300L last year but, even though I got excellent photos, that camera lens combo is quite heavy. I'm leaning towards the D7200 because it's really good in lower light conditions and it's smaller and lighter and has higher resolution than the D500. I like the 28-300 because even on a crop body it's plenty wide for the flower show and the 300 end comes in quite handy. The Nikkor lens isn't as good as the Canon lens but it is good enough.

If I was in that quandary, I would make up my own mind...……. or not bother going. I see your occupation is listed as analyst. (?) Good at your job?

If you’re going to a big flower show. Stop and think! You need macro too get close and detailed. Take tripod or mono pod small reflector disk if your are allowed. Take multiple focus areas and photo stack your images. I should look a Macro 90mm @ F 2.8 , or somewhere around the focal length take a cloth to wipe your glass take spare cards and batteries. The place will be air conditioned too cool. So batteries will deplete quicker. Condition you hardware to your location temperature. Have fun and go none stop shooting. πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»

I don't know you, so this comment is unfair of me. But, since I don't know you, your post seems more like you just want everyone to know what optical toys you own, rather than actually being interested in feedback. I believe any of the equipment you bloated about will do a fine job, if you do your part.

This not rocket science. Make up your own mind.

Perhaps take the lightest with a wide zoom, 18-140. And I'd have a wide angle, say 10-20, in my pocket. The other pocket would be the macro lens. Most likely you won't be allowed a tripod but a monopod might be ok. ( I have one that doubles as a walking stick)

Less than a .07% difference in field of view between the two for the sensor.
Pick the one that takes better pictures or flip a coin.

rmorrison1116 - I’d ignore all the snarky comments and go with the lighter, low light and surprisingly sharp D7200. That would be a great choice. Have a photogenic day! Regards, Ralph.

A good analyst gathers information to analyze. Which is exactly what the OP is doing here.
