    My understanding is that Nikon cameras show the effective aperture (meaning magnification is accounted for) when using macro lenses and Canon cameras do not. Therefore your lens could be set to f/32...

    There are a few reasons for it.

    It was one of the first batch of cameras to have an 8 megapixel sensor and therefore the technology to pack that many pixels into a 2/3" sensor was very new.

    That's funny, I actually just bought a Pro1 last Saturday on eBay for ~$250 with the original box with lots of accessories (cheapie wide adapter, filters, macro addons, tripod, case, etc.

    I suspect a low magnification lens is no worse or even better than the naked eye. I've never heard of photographers who use the same eye with the viewfinder getting any kind of UV-related damage even...

    My guess would be the same amount as the naked eye and I doubt UV filters will do much, although that could be wrong. I suspect UV filters are blocking light closer to visible wavelength than what...

    That is a good point. I have actually seen these questions about the 40D on Flickr.

    Of course. I totally didn't even think about the fact it is a G series lens. Ah well, what do I know about Nikon anyway! hehe

    He posted in the Canon forum using a Canon camera name (40D), the Nikon camera is the D40 and yes, that will work perfectly on a Nikon D40 as it has an AF-S ultrasonic motor. VR will work too.

    It'll work with an adapter but you will have to manually focus and the VR will not work.

    I had a pricey Hoya on my S2 and they really are a pain to clean.

    I (and this guy) totally recommend B+W MRC filters. They're of very high quality, clean easily (for those of us who make the odd...

    It's quite simple:


    In Lens
    Higher cost due to having to buy many lenses with IS
    More effective as the IS can be geared to the size/design of the lens

    Thanks for the reply. I figured as much seeing as their kit lenses are now AF-S for those D40 users and didn't expect ring USMs in each one. :) (silly Nikon and your in-camera motors)

    I know Canon likes to stick its micro-USM motors in many of their cheaper lenses (although I do like my 50mm f/1.4 USM very much) and I was just thinking: Does Nikon have an equivalent...
