    Forgive me if I double posted. I sold all my 'pro' gear back in the last century. I shoot with amateur gear now:

    - Nikon Coolpix 5000 ( rolled over 75,000 shots this month without a single failure in 7 years! )
    - Battery pack and sundry accessories (incl lenses) for above
    - 2X Nikon SB24 strobes
    - Flash bracket
    - gadgets in gadget bag

    In cold storage-
    Norman P800D + heads
    Sundry stands and studio gear gathering dust

    Just love being an amateur

    MikeF,
    Thats quite a collection of lenses. Did you have the 50mm 1.4 converted recently, or way back when it was free? Who did you have do it, and how well does it work on your D200/D300?
    Of those lenses, which are your favorites? Most favorite?

    DoctaDink, I had the conversion done by Nikon when it was free. As I recall I sent the lens to a city on Long Island. I'm drawing a blank on the name of the city. An interesting side story, I lived in New Jersey in 75-76 and took a trip to the Nikon HQ to see what I could see. I remember being a little let down. I think I was expecting to see every lens and body in a showroom that I could try out. It was a customer service counter in a business location and rather dissapointing.
    Anyway, back to your questions about the lenses. I haven't taken the 18-200 off the D-200 since I got it. It is my Take It To Work camera. I am a photographer at a tv station and if we are not shooting video for the newscasts we are shooting still images for the web. I wish the 18-200 was like the Fujinon on the video camera 15:1 zoom and F/1.4. but then it is a $18,000 lens with a built in 2x converter. Since I work 3am-Noon, I keep thinking about bringing one of the 1.4 lenses but for what I am doing the 18-200 is a great lens. When I'm not working and I'm out getting Moose or elk or mountain lions in the mountains then I usually have the D300 and the 170-500mm. The 18-200 has VR also so I can usually get some decent images in low light by boosting the ISO. In a breaking news situation in the wee hours I also carry my SB-800 flash with me so... My web kit for work also includes a Sony HDR-SR11 High Def Hard Drive Camcorder. If I am starting at a breaking news location on my way to work instead of stopping by the station to get the station's video camera then I use the little sony. I keep a still tripod and a video tripod in my Denali just in case. I then transfer the video before the newscast begin. Whoa look at the time. I'm off to bed.

    MikeF,
    Thanks for the reply. Wow, that Fujinon video lens must be one awesome piece of glass. 15:1 AND fast 1.4!
    I have always been partial to narrower zooms because I thought that too many optical compromises had to be made to reach the extreme ranges, plus I've always felt hampered by slower lenses, but I might have to re-think my biases. I've read good things about that 18-200 zoom. It sure would be handy to have that range at hand, without having to change lenses. I would like to try it on a full frame, such as the D700 or D3, with the high ISO capabilities, and no crop factor (WIDE!) Now, if I could only figure out how to swing a new body and lens..... Oh, and my first real camera was also the incredible Nikon F Photomic FTn! I just lent it and some lenses to my son for a B&W photography class that he is taking ( almost 40 yrs old and still a great functional camera! except for no batteries for the meter)

    I bought a Canon A1 camera almost 30 years ago. I still use it on occasion. I have just a prime lens, 50mm f1.4 and a 70-210mm f4 lens.

    I have a Yashica TLR ( uses 120 film ) - manual everything. A few of the best pictures I ever took were with that camera.

    Over the years I picked up some Nikon gear, Lately - I use a D70s with a 60mm macro or the 70 - 300 zoom. I use an Olympus SW 1030 underwater camera on the beach here.

    I would like to upgrade to a Nikon D90 with the newer lenses, anti shake and all that, but that would probably set me back $2,000 or more.

    The reality - I would like to have more than 10 meg, but - I doubt that I will ever need an enlargement greater than 8x10. I don't use a lot of the features on the cameras. My needs are simple.

    Second reality - I would still take some bad pictures, but technically they would be good. Most good photos are good ( even great ) because of what is behind the camera.
    Now I can see the darkness .

    They are both nice systems, Canon has come a long ways. You won't be disappointed with the xti or future Canon pro bodies if you go that way in the future. And in my opinion, it may save you some bucks down the road. If you ever aspire to have the high end stuff, you'll see the Canon glass is a bit cheaper at the pro level. Compare the 70-200, or most the prime lens offerings from both camps and you'll see what I mean.

    I'm a Nikon shooter, but I get along with Canon shooters without issue Here are the few shots I have of some of my equipment:


    D3, D2xs and D200IR (converted to infrared by Lifepixel).


    D3 and 85 f/1.4.


    D3 and 70-200 f/2.8 VR w/ RRS foot (EN-EL3e plastic cap to prop the lens up).


    D3 and 70-200 f/2.8 VR on a Markins M10 ballhead with RRS clamp, and Gitzo 1227 LVL tripod.

    I have a bunch more, lenses from 10.5mm to that 70-200, a bunch of Gitzo, RRS, Markins, Manfrotto, Lowepro and Pelican stuff too.

    This isn't everything, but it's most of what I use. Shot with a Pentax ME Super and 50mm/1.7 lens, Tmax 100, D23, Epson V500 scan of 5x7 print on Fomaspeed Variant paper. No digital cameras...I don't really do virtual photography.

    haha nice lenses really. I only sold the 24-70 simply because I don't use it often. I don't like the fact that the lens increases and decreases it's size greatly when I change the focal length. I am a PRIME man, I love my primes. My favorite zoom lense is actually the cheapo 17-40 f/4L. On full frame that lense is a bunch of fun. And at f/5.6 it is as sharp as a needle.

    My edit didn't take

    I also have a 50 1.4 and the EF-S 17-85, and an XTi Body - I also like primes, but with the crop body, I figure the 24-70 as a (albet heavy) 'walk around' lens

    Film body wise:
    T-90
    FTb (not FTb(n) - old enough to have a bell & Howell importer sticker)
    50mm f1.2 SSC
    28mm prime (can't remember the F)
    35mm prime
    Vivitar series 1 70-210

    I also have a pair of Konica Bodies (a TC and a FT1) and some lenses for them which are going to be sold - they were Dad's camera - Once upon a time, Mom worked for Berkey Marketing, who were at that time the importers for Konica and Omega cameras
