    What Nikkor Pro Glass is water resistant?

    I'm building a shopping cart on BH photo right now and am looking for a medium range fast zoom. I was looking at the 24-70mm 2.8 as it fit the bill because of the range and speed, but it doesn't seem to have weather sealing. What lens around this focal length does? Thanks.

    Is the D300s a good buy?

    I have a D90 right now and have enough to buy a brand new D300s, what I'm wondering is, is it worth it? Or should I wait to see if nikon updates their line up or even just skip the D300s and save up a bit more and get the D700? Thanks.

    Rant about CC threads

    I personally think CC threads should have a CC embedded code that makes it where you have to have at least 200 posts before you post. Because while there are some exceptions there are just too many noobs screaming "snapshot" or another idiotic pointless and nonsensical reason. Bitter- I...
