    Yeah it's at f/8. I didn't know about that relationship, but it makes sense. Thanks.

    Stupid question: Sensor dust or other?

    So, I've noticed artifacts in my recent (over the past month or so) photographs. There are four dark, circular smudges near the top center of some of my photos in an approximate diamond pattern, an...

    "Out of date?" A new body may no longer the most tricked-out camera in its class after 12-18 months, but it's far from obsolete. People are still buying Rebel XTs and, despite the small LCD, are...

    What a shocker. :rolleyes: Somebody needs to tell Ken that megapixes DO matter when you crop.

    I haven't tried one for myself, but comparing Jeff's test photos to those of the D40x, it does look...

    Outside of slightly better metering and flash/AF assist capabilities, I have a difficult time believing that the D60 is "better" than the XSi.

    I think you're better off paying full price for a new D80 from a reputable dealer than buying it used off of eBay.

    If the price difference really isn't that big of a deal, I'd go with the D80. If...

    Nikon's USA site still features both the D40 and D40x, so I don't think that either are "discontinued" here. And even if they were, either would still be worth purchasing as long as it's under...

    Yep. Nikon has their work cut out for them, as the XSi is arguably a better deal than the 40D.

    And as Phil pointed out, I would be surprised if Canon didn't come out with a true entry-level body...

    The 70-300 mm VR is ridiculously cheap at $450. You can also get the 18-70 mm f/3.5-4.5 for as low as $270 (grey item).

    The problem with the 16-85 mm VR is that it has a pro price tag, but only...

    Thanks for the info. Nikon must've gotten into some legal trouble in the past or something, as their definition of what components "work" with one another seems to be very conservative.

    It's difficult to argue with a 10x zoom that can go out to 500 mm for about $900. I just might get one next year.



    Absolutely. It's also small/light enough to hand-hold comfortably and the...

    Teleconverter question

    So, my mother-in-law has an older Tamron-F AF 2x teleconverter that she used with her old Canon Rebel (the original film one from the late '80s), and asked me if I would have any use for it. Since...

    The Rebel has more features and will autofocus with a wider array of lenses (the D40 doesn't have a screw motor on the lens mount). The D40 has better metering and better ergonomics, in my opinion.

    From what I've seen, the XSi appears to be a significant upgrade in terms of features. I'd wait to read a couple of reviews first, but right now it sounds like it's worth paying a little more for...

    If you have larger hands, you might want to avoid the Digital Rebel and the D40/D40x. They're both relatively small and the former doesn't have a very good grip. The Canon 40D and the Nikon D80 are...

    I second this. It costs twice as much, but it's probably the best bang for the buck of any prosumer zoom telephoto out there.
