    I think the 4s is huge step up from the 4. If they had just called it the iPhone5, maybe Apple would have gotten much less flack. :-P

    Well, given the level of vitriol sometimes seen in discussions - I'm not that surprised. But maybe this site in general just isn't getting the traffic. In my case, I'm just too damn busy. :-O

    I considered this lens, but the price of the Nikon equivalent (Nikkor 70-300mm VR f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED) was nearly the same with discounts, last October. Plus availability of the Tamron lens was poor and...

    I'm with K1W1 - Looks like junk, and retrofitted junk at that. But, hey, I wish I'd thought of it, because likely people will throw money at it.

    The D7000 has some great features lacking in the D90 that may be the difference maker for some folks. I've thought about upgrading from my D90, and noted there are some UI changes that might be tough...

    And? I'll get over it - never bothered me much. Given that some of the info is in the viewfinder anyway.

    BTW, trolling in a Nikon forum with a user ID suggesting you like SONY stuff is probably...

    The CP pic is interesting. Not only are some reflected light waves blocked, but looks to me that most of those blocked are on the blue or high end of the visible light spectrum. I didn't know that...

    I hope you aren't cleaning your sensor 2-3 x per week. That's got to do more harm than good. I'm not sure you really need to clean the backsides of your lenses that often either. If I was finding...

    Well, it's been reported that Nikon's high end cameras and lenses are in short supply b/c they were made mostly in Japan, and their manufacture was impacted by the earthquakes. I've seen this in the...

    I missed all this, but would have suggested a similar combo. Love my 50mm 1.4D for portrait type shots.

    Does look neat, but pricey. Maybe if I was paying in AUD$ :-)

    The shiny stuff worries me, as I would sort of expect it to get scratched up.

    The hood for the 50mm f/1.4D isn't a plastic bayonet type, it's a rubber hood, with a screw mount (HR-2). Or at least that's what the sales-dude told me. It screws into the threads on the lens or...

    It has its limitations, but in good light it does well. Nikon's better lenses just are way more expensive.

    Heheh - made me laugh. I was *this* close to buying a D7000 - Nikon had a 10,000 instant rebate program that ended Sunday, and the dealer I shop most at had a 20% points back offer.

    You will, assuming you got a good copy. I've been amazed what I can do with mine. And I don't think the 55-300 would have survived the fall my 70-300 took a few weeks back.

    I often wish I had the 35mm for similar reasons - my 50mm f/1.4D seems a bit tight in the small rooms of our Japanese apartment.
