    Nikon 105 Micro 2.8 AiS

    I love my 105 2.8 AIS... It's only 1:2, but tubes can take care of that. D300/105mm 2.8 AIS

    How fast is your PC...Really?

    It's DDR2 ram. You need to double that freq. It would be 880mhz. That's a 10% overclock like you stated in an earlier post.

    24-70mm is a great walkaround lens

    I love the first shot. The baby Burrowing Owl seems to think he's found his mother.

    3G iPhone on our horizon.....

    What are the other differences between the original iPhone and the 3G model? I have an original 8gb version? 3G would do me no good since I don't think it would function on my prepaid service. Are there any reason to upgrade other than more capacity for me?

    got my voigtlander 58mm f/1.4 today

    Pretty amazing piece of glass you got there. I have had the 40 f/2 in my cart several times and never went through with the sale. I like it for the size/performance for the FM2n.

    How fast is your PC...Really?

    Yup. The stock speed is 2.4ghz. I was able to get the CPU up to 3.5ghz, but with a "more than comfortable" bump in voltage, which produced a lot of heat. I didn't want to mess with water cooling and such. It does 3.2ghz with a minimal bump in Vcore, and runs cool on air. The ram is also...

    Problem solved! As long as you don't miss the extra $1k.

    Contax G2. Opinions on the camera?

    It's the Contax G1. Great little camera, stellar lenses. But functionally it seems more like a P&S than rangefinder.

    Which brand p/s?

    Canon still seems to be the way to go for P&S IMO. I would love to have a G9. I currently have an A630. I'm very happy with the performance. I just don't use it quite enough to justify an upgrade.

    D300 - 10k shots and going strong

    I got mine in November and have 7000 clicks on it. I have been putting the D2H to some use during the same period though. If the D300 was my only body, I would have racked up some miles by now.

    D300

    The 35/2 may well be one of Nikon's most underrated lenses. I have a user condition, non "D" copy. Still, the color, contrast, sharpness leaves me scratching my head sometimes.

    Nikon Release D300 Firmware 1.3

    I've updated mine. It's quick and painless, but I didn't really notice that I gained anything. Anyone experiencing DBS able to confirm a fix with the FW?

    EN-EL4A Calibration

    This is on the D2H also. But it's not required often. I have had to calibrate the battery in my D2H only once, shortly after buying it. It hasn't been required again in a year and a half. The battery for my D300 is pretty new and has never needed calibration.

    D200 or not D200?

    I'm sure my settings weren't opimized for OOC viewing. It's wasn't really a complaint, but more like advice to not be discouraged if shots seem a little flat. The detail is there. The files really come to life with NX.

    Better viewfinder???

    I don't have a D50. But, if it's like the D70, then the D200 is a big step up. The D300 is a noticable improvement over that. I only wish I had a D3 to compare.

    Next-Up -> Consumer grade FX

    I think we're still several years away from sub $1k FX bodies. But I agree with the progression. If within the next 9 months or so, Nikon dropped a plastic body, 3fps, 12mp FX body at say... $1499, there wouldn't be a problem finding buyers.

    tamron 17-50mm 2.8

    I recently bought one from B&H. Optically the lens is great. But the one I got had the new internal focus motor(D40/60 friendly). Focusing is painfully slow. I requested an RMA the same day it recieved. 1-2sec to lock focus on a D300 or D2h is ridiculous. Every other lens, AFS or not...

    Which monitor calibration?

    For $100 or less, which monitor cal package is recommeded?

    How fast is your PC...Really?

    Wow! Someone started a similar test thread with different image on the Mac forum. The best Mac by a long shot was 7sec. My lowly PC chimed in at 3.2sec! I figured posting my time on the Mac thread wouldn't be apprecieated. It was nice to see at least a crude comparison.

    Q6600 @ 3.2ghz 2GB DDR2-800 @ 890mhz 500gb Seagate 8800GT Vista 32 9.8sec Not the fastest kid on the block, but I built this system in October last year. 9.8sec would've been pretty quick then.

    VelociRaptor HD

    That's great to hear. In a gaming system I built a few years ago, I had a pair of 74gb 10K Raptors in a Raid0 array. It was(and still is) blazing fast, but definitely not silent. I had forgotten how loud it actually was until I built my current PC last fall. The 500gb Seagate I have is...

    Iso 3600

    Are you sure that is 3600 with two 0's? Great shot.

    D200 or not D200?

    Congrats on the purchase. If all is fine with the camera, you got a smoking deal. The D200 was my crossover model from Canon. I was instantly thrilled with it. Only complaints were mediocre battery life. I turned of the LCD review, and the shot count per charge shot up dramatically. I just...

    Contax G2. Opinions on the camera?

    If you want a cheap way to try rangefinders, look into some of the fixed lens models. I have a Contax G1. The lenses for the G models are just spectacular. But to be honest the camera doesn't have a true rangefinder feel to it. I have a couple older fixed lens cameras that are a blast to...

    F100 Film Rewind Forks

    One of my previous F100 bodies had the early fork. To be honest, the issue is overblown unless you are a busy professional that will putting your F100 to very heavy use. If you're like me, primarily a digital shooter and want the F100 to shoot an occasional roll of slides, don't let this be a...

    Will you upgrade?

    I would love to have the D700. Maybe I will down the road. I already have 4 bodies D300, D70, D1H, D2H, and reasons I don't want to part with each. I'm a hobbiest, and don't make a nickel off of photography. Dropping nearly $2000 after tax on the D300 on release day was hard(ok, impossible)...

    What's the MOST USELESS photography-related item you've ever purchased?

    MB-D200 grip. Thank you Nikon for listening to the gripes I and others had about this wobbly piece of plastic. I love my MB-D10. It is worth it's higher price even if it didn't give a framerate boost.

    First 17-55 2.8 pics

    I miss this lens. A few months back, I bought one with $ I didn't have and had to quickly sell it. I'm hoping to catch a good deal on one in the next couple months when some start jumping the DX ship.

    Any one using 18-200 VRII?

    I've been really impressed with my 18-200VR. It's very sharp on the wide end. The VR function is outstanding. Very few missed shots with this lens mounted. All in a rather small, lightweight package. Cons, yes a few... It softens a bit on the long end. Contrast, especially at long FL is a...

    Best Point and Shoot (for wife)???

    I agree here. I picked up an A630 for my wife and find myself carrying it when I don't want to lug around the D200. I appreciate the manual controls, Canon's great jpg quality and was quite suprised by the Macro performance. The 4xAA batteries last what seems forever between charges. Coming...
