    Nikon 105mm f2.8 macro lens isn't f2.8!!!

    Why the hell would you want 2.8 in 1:1 ??! :confused: Ah... Probably DOF is too large... HMMMMM

    i hate making these, but 14-24 or 17-55?

    But what is "entire range"? :) Totally different things on DX and FX. I agree that 14-24, 24-70 and 70-200 (and long tele) are great for FX. But for my use it doesnt cut it at all on DX. 14-24 is not wide enough as a wideangle, 24-70 is not wide enough as a normal, 70-200 is too tight, becomes...

    i hate making these, but 14-24 or 17-55?

    Its a perfect range for FX. I cant see myself using 24-70 on DX... I will have to swap lenses every 30 seconds :wink:

    Different colours in web browser

    Ok i figured the problem. Vista has build-in colour management system similar to Mac. So i had to reset all profiles there and now everything looks the same! :hail:

    Different colours in web browser

    So what should i do? When i look at windows photo gallery, in the properties of the image is says that sRGB. Colour management in PS is also set to sRGB. But it still looks different when viewed in Firefox (and amazingly much more accurate to what i get on the print!)

    Different colours in web browser

    Let me add that i didnt pay much attention to this before, only saw it today. What i did was to buy Spyder 3 Studio calibrator for monitor and printer. Proved to be pretty usless actually. The monitor was so good that i could hardly see any changes before/after while comparing sample sheet side...

    Different colours in web browser

    Im using Vista 64 and Firefox. Pictures look darker and more reddish in Firefox. And this is almost exactly matches how my prints look. Colours in PS and windows picture viewer are less saturated. Whats up with that?

    Wideangle needed with 17-55?

    Right now im using 18-200, but will be switching to 17-55 and 70-200. Im also contemplating the need for 12-24. The thing is that now i tend to think that i dont. For really wide creative shots ive got 10.5mm fisheye. 18mm is mostly wide enough for normal use. Usually i find i need wider view...

    16-85 vs 17-55

    Assuming 16-85 has about the same distortion and a tiny bit less sharp, which one would you pick? Im a sucker for fast lenses but im also a sucker for VR. If im shooting at night at 24mm, f2.8 will allow me to go only 1/20 at around 24mm, while with f4 and VR i will shoot 1/6 no problem! If i...

    D300 and 18-200: DUST!!!

    Nah... I think D300 is a little different. It uses tempered glass to cover LCD. I dont think its the case with D200.

    How to stitch panoramas?

    Comp is fine, i have 4gb of ram and 2,4ghz x 4... Should be fine. So far i tried PanaVue Image Assembler and a quick handheld pano, although greatly reduced in size since im on my laptop now. It worked great even though i left everyhting on auto. Have you guys tried it? How does it compare to...
