    The next camera will be a D700... once I achieve full-time employment again. I had a chance to use a freinds D700 and was hooked.

    About the only additional feature I need right now is sensor cleaning... I see a speck on sky shots. Time to lock up the mirror and dive in again.

    A 3" LCD would also be handy...

    Agree on that
    I liked the shape of the D70 slightly more then the D80 - but by the time I got around to a DSLR - the D70 was finished.
    Interesting about the Sigmas!! Which ones have you tried on it (the D80)
    I have the D80 and have not had the best of times with the Sigmas on it
    which makes me a bit uncertain about a Sigma Macro.....

    Most of the time I shoot the Sigma 18-125, but also use the 24-70 f/2.8 quite a bit. Love both lenses. But...

    ... The D80 Liked to spend time hunting for focus, and several shots would lock but were out of focus where the D70 is well-focused "right-now", and there were other minor anoyances as well. The larger display was great, and all of my Nikkor glass worked ok... but the D80 still liked to hunt once in a while. Could be the Sigma's need to be re-chipped for that camera.

    All I can say is try before you buy if possible.

    Ha! See, I can change...

    Thanks, Geoff. I've developed some favored settings in Photomatix. More important, I always adjust contrast, clarity, sharpen, etc. after processing through Photomatix.

    Nice take on a common scene, Lukas. I really like the colors. I used to live right next to those houses.

    Ripon Cathedral

    Couple of early morning shots. Just after the Vicar caught me taking the shots and offered to lift the clouds a little for me to get more of the early morning sun!
