    If you buy a legitimate U.S. Lens in the U.S., with a U.S. receipt, you can get it serviced by Nikon anywhere. If I were to go to Australia and buy a lens there, and I went bad back here, as long as...

    I really not that MS software is so bad. Look at Apple. They used to advertise the fact that they did not have viruses. Well, they made themselves popular, which equals: target. Now, they don't...

    About half the software I have won't run on a mac without some sort of emulation or dual boot mode. That, and I'd rather spend my money on software than overpriced hardware. Macs are PCs too. They...

    I could never go back to a camera that doesn't have two command dials. That would just drive me crazy. I mostly live in aperture priority.

    Actually, the AF-D 20mm f2.8 is not a bad lens. Easily equal in quality to the 35mm f2. The 35mm f2 has some flaws that don't show up so much on DX, but may be problematic on FX, as it tends to get...

    Not if all you have are PCs and Linux boxes. One of the few examples of something available for Mac that isn't also on PC. Lightroom is on both.

    Apple has a better OS for a couple of reasons.
    1. Prior to OS-X, they practically destroyed the company with how bad and buggy the OS had gotten. We'll give them the benifit of the doubt and...

    The first time you do a museum or castle, you'll wish you had both the flexibility of the 17-55 and the f2.8. That lens is on my camera right now. It comes off for the following reasons: I need...

    The problem with batch processing for color is that it doesn't work at all unless you've taken a lot of the same lighting. Indoors with flash, OK, maybe. Outdoors in prime photo time (early...

    However, some Image Stabilization systems can detect when the camera/lens is on a tripod, and automatically compensate for that fact. Nothing beats reading your manual.

    The difference between the 17-55 and the consumer lenses is more than the f2.8 constant aperture, which is already a huge difference. The glass is a large part of the weight, but the build quality...

    One main issue with any macro lens is the working distance to achieve its best ratio, in this case 1:1. The longer the lens, the less close to your subject you have to get. OTOH, the 60mm works on...

    There's lots to consider. What line of cameras is better supported where you live. For me, that was a wash, and between Nikon and Canon, it usually is, but not always. Canon does have a more...
