thanks for the reply len. That shot looks great! I like the detail in the rocks, and the cloud cover. We are heading over to Washington DC at noon, and I wish i had a new camera.
But I have been reading at kenrockwell.com which has a lot of good info....i think. He talks about how a lot of people are gear heads, and don't know how to shoot good pics no matter what camera they have. So I will just take my little nikon point and shoot, and be happy for now.
Well here's another thing to throw in the mix. I've have a friend that has some $$, and he has a canon 1dmkIII, and some sweet lenses. this is a link to one of his 100-400 lenses that he would let me use. so now I'm thinking about canon, even though I like the Nikon selection better. http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/co...0&modelid=7344
he hardly ever uses it, so that might be cool. do you think that should persuade me to go with canon?
thanks again, jon
edited to ask: do you shoot macro much? I scuba dive, and most of my underwater pics are all macro. If you do, what lens do you use?
