    Battery Grip question

    On the battery grip for the d300, does the original battery go in the camera, then the additional batteey go in the grip? If this is the case, you'd have to take the grip off each time to access the camera battery to charge it, correct?

    Which lens is "The Beast?

    Actually Rich, my experience with my wife and photography has been a very good one. She shot my D70 with both the 28-70 and the 70-200 while on vacation in Yellowstone and the Tetons last month and fell in love with both. Neither lens intimidated her. She got very comfortable with the monopod...

    Which lens is "The Beast?

    +1 for the 28-70 as "The Beast" And it was UF that got most of us heading that way......now as far as the 70-200, well I have that one also, and my wife named it.....she immediately looked at it and said"well, I guess size DOES matter!"
