Very nice Xailo
Those are all beautiful shots. EXIF info including lens detail wld be appreciated.
I like the second candle shot and the first one in the second series(indoor with the sky). Very nice, what lens are you using?
Here ya go again.
Time to change your sig.
I was hoping you'd stick with Canon. I'm waiting until March to upgrade.
Great pics as usual. Those ceiling lights are awesome.
:cool: Very nice Xailo. Having fun with the new toy :D
Thanky you drama.:)
Gsquared, thank you, as soon as I can I'll post those for you. Thank GOD, I asked for more work, well I got it. :D
rawpaw18, thank you also very much... that's the 18-55mm kit lens.:cool:
chrisl, thanks for the support. I haven't had a good internet connection for a while. I'll get around to the sig, I wouldn't right Canon off just yet in all actuallity they're aspects of each that I like. I still want to see what Canon and nikon are going to do this year. I see along with the 70-200mm Nikkor a 70-200mm L in my future also. lol what the heck it's only money.:)
FLiPMaRC, thanks pal and it's been interesting to say the least I definately miss the range being that I always shoot at the long end for the most part. hopefully the 70-300mm will take care of that as a walk around. I have had too much time to enjoy it and learn about the flash system. Definately I still have a lot too learn see some more books in my future too.;)
Beautiful shots, XaiLo! Looks like I wasn't the only one changing from S3 to D40 :D Mine's on the way, should arrive Fri or Sat.
Concerning the lens, Ken Rockwell was very impressed with the "new" Nikkor/Nikon AF-S VR DX 18-200mm 3.5-5.6G IF-ED lens. Yes, quite expensive (about 700$). But good quality, excellent zoom range and image stabilization. He called it "the only lens you'll ever need" besides an extreme wide angle for landscapes.
on the 18-200mm
I have that lens, and really like it. That said, while it is a great lens for many situations, it is not fast enough for some situations.
The f/3.5 - 5.6 is not going to stop any action in less than ideal lighting. So if you can't use a flash (most indoor sports), it is not a good option. Less than ideal lighting without moving subjects, it does quite well - even without a flash - due to the VR.
If you are shooting indoor sports, go with an f/2.8 lens, but your selection is low on the D40.
