    If you're asking about my photos, I'm using my own EOS-20D with some borrowed lenses: a F5.6 400mm and an F3.5-5.6 28-300mm. Believe me, I'm not close enough for anything truly spectacular, but they should still be nice.

    Jeff, is that a F3.5-6.3 28-300mm lens. I've been holding off buying one since it is as slow as F6.3 at the long end. If it is F3.5-5.6, what brand is it?

    It's the $2000 L lens. It's decent in image quality, but incredibly heavy and hefty. It's perfect for renting, but I'd never buy one (it's not worth that much). Sigma and Tamron offer ultracompact versions of the 28-300 f/3.5-6.3 (note the difference), but they are both very poor in quality.

    I am also looking forward to your pictures, Jeff!

    Here's hoping you get some great ones. I hope that before the Shuttle is retired I can get down to Florida on a vacation to see a launch. I remember the first shuttle launch in 1981, and for me the Shuttle has been the only vehicle of manned space exploration. Awe inspiring stuff!

    Buran was more modern than the shuttle. I'd love - one day - to see Buran.

    My mistake, not only was I not looking in the right price range, but I wasn't looking at Canon lenses as I don't have a Canon dSLR. Thanks.
