    Nikon 35 f/1.8 Pics (and CA q's as well)

    Just took these on my D40x today - with the new lens, was somewhat cloudy in Rye, NY today. I know some discussion has been had about CA, but was wondering what everyone thought below. All were shot at ISO 200, Auto WB, Aperture priority (f/1.8 the in all shots). I have a Tiffen UV filter on...

    Woah, D200 cheap!

    I don't know if this is news or not, but $599 for a D200 from BestBuy?!! If it didn't have such crappy noise levels above 1000 ISO, I'd be ALL over that. . . I hope the D90 gets to that price point soon! Seeing as the D40 went down to $300 before it departed, makes you wonder about some of...

    Nikkor 35mm 1.8 G DX

    Yes you read that right, DX?!! For $199?!! Guess target the D40/D60/D90/D300 users? I'm a little stunned with this. . .I was going to buy the 35 2.0 this year, so I can double use on FX bodies, but hmmm. . .I guess DX ain't so dead yet? Nikon launches AF-S 35mm F1.8 DX prime: Digital...

    Film Camera Fun - new Nikon N75 and 50mm f/1.4 G

    So being on a budget and realizing I can't justify another dSLR in the home (read Wife not convinced enough yet!), I sprung for a used SLR on ebay; I was aiming for a F100, but ended up with a N75 for about $39.99. I'm not sure if any of you have made the reverse transition, but it was comical...

    D3 Price drop on Amazon!

    Every now and then I'll check items I have added to my Amazon cart, my wish list some would say - saw the D3 dropped $300 to $4697 - awesome, that's like a 24mm f/2.8 prime's worth! Just thought I'd see if anyone else noticed the "slippage" at other retailers with the D700 on the horizon. . ...

    Anyone use Abes of Maine?

    Like the title says, they have amazing prices on Nikon products and claim they are an authorized dealer, want to check with the forum before I plunk the $$$ down. . .

    Which one of these pics are from the infamous Nikon 14-24 f/2.8?

    So, I went and did a comparo of the following: Nikon 12-24 f/4 Nikon 14-24 f/2.8 and threw in my Nikon 18-55 f/3/5-5/6 VR in for a mixer all of these were on my D40x, around the same setting (some might have been auto iso/auto white balance, i forgot, i was there for awhile), and obviously the...

    D40x compatibility with 8GB SDHC?

    Hey gang, I know my D40x works well with my 4 GB SDHC card and my 2GB Ultra II SD card, has anyone tried the new Extreme III SDHC cards out on their Nikon D40(x)?? Link: 8GB Or for that matter, even with the Ultra II 8GB Model I'm going abroad for my honeymoon without a laptop, so I'd like to...

    An interesting take on the Nikkor 18-200 VRII

    So in my infinite attempts at trying to get another lens, I thought it would be wise to re-visit the 18-200 Nikon lens with VR II and possibly trade in my 55-200mm VR Nikon lens (as some might know, I've been tossing around the idea of a new lens with my limited selection a la my recent...

    Need a wide-angle lens for my Nikon D40X

    Hey guys, After being on here a couple of months and doing research, I decided on a D40x (and ended up getting surprised with it as my engagement present from my fiancee!) I ended up going kitlensless since I knew I was going to upgrade to a fancy AF-S lens of some sort, but am sort of kicking...

    picking the right wedding photographer

    it's ironic that my love for photography and an impending dSLR purchase have coincided with my engagement and need for a wedding photographer. . . I convinced my fiancee that we need a dslr (victory for me), but she's not convinced I can shoot my own Hindu wedding. :lol:. .because I'll be part...

    Weather Sealing for the noob

    I've looked through the boards and haven't gotten a striaghtforward answer: I'm a noob, I'll probably get a entry dSLR (pentax k100d super or nikon D40) and use the kit lens for awhile and never change it. Will I need to be concerned with weather seals? Taking it into humid environments and...

    Pentax K100D Super vs. Nikon D40/x

    Hey guys, this is my first post and I'm relatively new to the world of dSLR - I used to enjoy photography with my father's old 35mm (Pentax!) and I've been using a Casio P&S which is frankly a POS, so I've decided to upgrade! I haven't held the K100d since there aren't many mainstream stores...
