I thought it was going to be a poll guessing how tall you were.

    I just had to post these picture of my goose & rabbit both at about 50 yards and closeups of magnolias.

    PS: All the pictures are taken with my Olympus SP-570UZ and at the automatic setting. I also try to pay attention to the sun.

    Re: Lens size

    The DX 1.5x crop factor on your Nikon D7000 gives you a lot of extra reach - for free

    I'm planning on a FX Nikon D800E (36MP) - then use the DX mode on it every now and then.

    I think it is at a usable 13MP when using DX mode!

    D800 / D800E - Product Information

    And at a selected 1.2x crop factor it is 25MP! (6,144 x 4,080)


    I have the Nikon 300mm f/2.8 AF-S VR
    Nikon 300mm f/2.8 VR

    the 70-200mm f/2.8 AF-S VR
    Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 VR

    the AF-S TC-14E II 1.4x Teleconverter
    http://www.kenrockwell.com/nikon/tc14e.htm

    the 35-70mm f/2.8 AF-D
    Nikon 35-70mm f/2.8 AF

    and the 50mm f/1.4 AF-D lenses
    Nikon 50mm f/1.4 AF-D Review


    Nikon FM3A SLR film camera that works no matter how cold it is (My D200 dies in the cold).
    The FM3A will work with or without batteries. (But it is not an auto-focus camera.)
    Has an Aperture Priority mode too.
    Nikon FM3a

    My AF-D lenses work on manual focus bodies - the G (AF-S) lenses will not work - there's no manual aperture ring on them - they stay at f/22 or smaller!
    So, I have a 70-210mm AF-D f/4-5.6 that works. AF-Ds have a manual aperture ring.
    Nikon 70-210mm f/4-5.6 Review

    And I bought an old AIS 300mm f/4.5 tele for it.
