Re: which D-SLR camera?
Len, I do enjoy your pictures here, Sorry we couldn't have met out in WY this yearbut health problems cancelled my trip at the last minute. Laying in a hospital bed with nothing else to do but read, I had my wife buy all of the latest photography literature she could find, after reading every one from cover to cover I decided it was time to retire my old Canon 's and go digital. Boy is this going to cost me ( nothing is cheap any more). Congratulations on your antelope, I look forward to reading about it and seeing a picture or two. Ernie is the man!! Everyone has said it was hard to keep up with him but it was great that he packed out your "lope".
as far as cameras go I will probably go with the D-300, I just found out that it can be pushed to ISO 6400 if needed. lenses I am looking at getting are the AFS 2.8 24-70, AFS 2.8 18-35, AFS 2.8 70-200,AFS 3.5,5.6 80-400,AFS 2.8 105 micro, and possibly a AFS 2.8 60 micro. Will these do? most of them have SW and VR as well. Man, along way from the old manual focus lenses I have used in the past.
