    Just picked up the 70-300VR very happy with it, just been sniping out the window so far as im waiting for my UV filter to arrive in the post... its a bit top heavy on my d40 but the sharpness is so much better than the kit lens!

    Congrats on the new lens.

    I love the focal range that puppy offers.

    will put a couple on but so far its been from inside the house out the window! so they are noting special, mind you i do like the way i can be a sniper from inside , the poeple look so natural....ooo i cant wait for my filters and a nice day!!
    these were all pretty much at 300mm and its a dull day here so pretty pleased with that VR feature....after all i paid a lot for it !

    Very cool! The most reach I have is 200mm, that 300mm would be nice. I have been thinking about popping for a 100-400mm lens but have other stuff I think I probably need more. But I will get around to it one of these days, right after the Alien Bee 800's I need for my home studio.

    I sold the wife on the notion last weekend. We're having a contractor come over this week to give an estimate to finish our walk-out basement. I can have a huge studio down there and move my office down there too... spread out. She's tired of seeing all the growing photog equipment around the main level of the house. :)

    Congrats on the twins! Are these your first kids? I just had a son 5 months ago and it's been the best thing ever.

    they are the first, i have no kids and im not sure abt the whole thing yet!!
    We are also in a bit of an awkward situation, we are in a 1 bed flat in the UK and with the economic situation its not easy to move....im self employed you see.... I have a nice place in France well suited for kids, but its away from her family and there is little work there, very rural.....great for photography tho!! seems like a good reason to move back there, shame i was not into photography when i lived there...
    I actually rent a place out in france for holidays so if any of you are coming to rural Europe....let me know and i will post the site link!
