    just looked it up, $9,500! Yes, no difference. You loose one stop of light with a x1.4 and two stops with a x2 though.

    The Nikon 500mm f4 costs about £5000 (dunno in US). My friend who shoots some football uses a 400 f2.8 (i think) and teleconverters where necessary.

    New Rebel vs. 30D and PC vs Mac ??

    Don't tell people that in England. Everyone has a manual gearbox (stick shift) car. Microsoft would loose a significant market!
