    Poll: Photoshop by any other name is still Photoshop

    I guess I'm a little perplexed by whether the Mac is better than the PC debate because, in the end, most of us use Photoshop to edit our photos. Based on the reviews I've read of the Mac version of...
  2. Used 70-200 2.8

    The reason I was comparing the used 80-200 with a new 70-200 is just because I can't find a used 70-200 for under around $975. I can pick up a new one for $1130 so I just don't see the need to take...
  3. New Canon L 70-200 or used 80-200 2.8? Help!!

    Is the Canon 80-200 2.8 as good as the newer 70-200 2.8 L? I'm sure there was a reason that Canon replaced it, but I haven't been able to find out why. I can save about $300 going used on the 80...

    Best Places to Buy Used Lenses on Line

    I'm looking to purchase a pretty serious lens for my budget and I would like to know of some reputable places from which to purchase used lenses. There are a lot of places to buy used equipment on...
  7. Renting lenses

    There have been two posts that recommended renting lenses. I'm all for that. But I've never done it and don't know where to turn to do so. Do you rent them somewhere on line or do you rent them...
  8. Sigma APO 120-300mm F/2.8 EX DG HSM Lens

    Does anyone have any experience with this lens? I saw a good review on it in Pop Photography magazine, but it looks like they love most of the stuff they get their hands on. It's pricier than the...

    That's a sales ploy - read the T&C carefully

    That's nothing more than a sales ploy. The actual rebate form declares "To be valid, all eligible products must be purchased *during* the promotion period." If all products had to be purchased on...
  11. Thanks George!

    Good to hear a definitive opinion. I'm ordering it tonight.
  12. So...

    Which lens is better for the intended application? I had assumed the Nikon lens would be better, dated as it is.
  13. Sigma over Nikon?? Am I missing something?

    Yep, I just posted this note to raise this thread to the top again because no one responded to my previous post (immediately preceeding). I can't see buying a Sigma lens over a Nikon lens when the...

    Looking to avoid a cheap piece of glass

    I was shooting for a high quality piece of glass that would help protect the lens and keep dust out - one that wouldn't impair the quality of the lens. Is this another sort of myth propagated by all...

    You won't like this

    If cost is an issue, you won't like what I'm going to say. To shoot basketball indoors with no flash, you'll need a fast lens and a monopod unless you want to double your investment with an image...

    Lens filters

    What are the best lens filters out there for simply protecting your lens? I shoot indoors so I don't need a haze or UV filter. I am about to purchase a Nikon 80-200 2.8 and want to protect the...

    ISO Level

    I went all the way to ISO 1600 with the 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor Lens (D50 kit lens combo) with unsatisfactory results over 100 mm. Between 55 and 90 mm, I had very little blur with...

    Image stabilization at 2.8 necessary?

    I'm planning to use a monopod to shoot indoor sports. I'm eying a couple of 200 mm 2.8 lenses, one without image stabilization and one with. The one with image stabilization is more than twice the...

    D50 Battery Grip

    You're right. The picture and the description do not synch up. The pic shows 4 AA batteries in the grip while the description reads that it holds 6 AA Nimh batteries. Nice catch. I've seen a...
