Chillaxing Molly

I was trying out my new Nikon D810 and Tamron 70-200 2.8 lens this weekend at my stepmother's. It was late and her Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Molly was relaxing so I grabbed a few shots. I shot this hand held at ISO 4000 at 200mm at 1/25 without flash. I am amazed with the quality of the shots under these conditions. There would have been no way to have done this back in the days of film, and other digital cameras photos would have been a LOT grainier from pushing the ISO so much. If this is any indication of what this camera and lens can do in low light I'm going to be one HAPPY photographer.
