Just had to share - finally gone digital.

Whilst the F5/4 and 801 are not entirely redundant, today I picked up my brace of D200's, a 50mm f1.4 (problem see lens lust), 17-55, 70-200 and a Sigma 30mm f1.4 and finally a brace of SB-800's

Batteries charging and taking one out on a 'getting to know you' trip tomorrow.

Dribbling - not a pretty site.

For those far more experienced than I any tips or things to look out for?

Congratulations, it seems as though you are well on your way to digital happiness. The only thing to look out for...is the bill for all that you bought!

The price - mmm interesting this. by the way, fogot to mention a brace of MB-D200's.

Did tons of internet searching and found that the combined cost at high street prices was closing fast on £6k. Internet prices from various places went down to £4700. Off I poddle to a high street retailer list in hand and ask if they could price match - they did and better. I walked away having spent £4500 and they threw in two Extreme III 2gb cards. And it gets better...they offered me 12 months interest free credit so my cash tomorrow goes into a savings account and in 12 months they get the £4500 and I keep the pennies of interest. Fabulous! Happy as a pig in...

Some people stick in their big toe, others just do a belly flop. I'd say you fall into the latter category when something strikes your fancy.

Ahhh, laddie, you're starting off with such a good kit!

The 17-55 and 70-200VR were my first lenses, they spoiled me. You are going to have SOOOOO much fun. The 50/1.4 is a fun little lens (I say little compared to the honking 17-55).
Just go out, shoot, have fun, and come back and show us what you've got. We're all happy for you! :biggrin:

Now you're not limited to 36 photos so fire away without thinking twice ! :biggrin:
