Hey everyone! Well, I get my paycheck Friday and am tempted to get a new lens. I have a 28-90mm lense that came with my Nikon 65, Which I bought in july. I talked to the lady at my local Ritz Camera, and she recommended I go for a 70-300 MM Lens, as I wont lose speed, and I will gain zoom. To me, speed is one of the most important things. Almost all of my pictures are of planes, or from a plane. I took alot of pictures in San diego if airliners landing, but alot of them came out blurry, I don't know whether it was my lens, or whether the fact that I was only using 400 Speed Film. I know if I get too much zoom, I will probably need a tripod. Pretty hard to fit a tripod into the cockpit of the plane types I fly lol. I was wondering what you guys would recommend for a good combination of speed, and zoom. I saw this, http://www.ritzcamera.com/webapp/wc...0001&langId=-1&productId=7398976&cmCat=SEARCH But I might break the bank Any suggestions on good amount of zoom, and speed? So far it seems like that lense might be the best choice for me. Another idea I had, was to have different lens for different applications. Like a 70-300MM for in the air and moving targets, and a bigger lens for on the ground. The problem I encountered with a lense for the ground, is I need a fast lens, but good zoom. I checked out the Sigma 600mm-1000mm but it seems like it would be too slow. Today, I was flying out of Sacramento with my instructor, and we kept going on a course of west. 40 minutes later, we leave the valley, and I see the San Francisco Bay. It was a simply breahtaking view, saw the golden gate and everything. Unfortunetly I didn't have my camera. I wanna bring it tomorrow though On our way back, we flew by Travis Air Force Base, and I saw a C-5 Galaxy takeoff. It was amazing, it looked like it was just hovering in mid air. Thanks guys!
