    Hey All,

    i'm so excited!! i'm pretty new to photography, not quite a year yet, but something I've been wanting to get is a decent zoom lens. I popped onto kijiji and did a search in my town, and guess what, there was an older AF Nikon 70-300mm lens... the guy didn't know anything about photography, and he was selling an old F80 2 lens and a speedlight, i didn't want the small lens or the f80, so i just said, what do you want for the 300 and the speedlight, he said, "gimmie 100 bucks" so I did, and now I have a killer 70-300mm lens, which i checked on ebay and the are going for about 100 bucks alone.. and the speedlight is also on ebay for about 80 bucks... I'm very excited now to have a good lens, and just in time for my trip to new orleans (leaving this saturday) to do disaster relief for the 3rd time since katrina.
