    I know a few guys who shoot with that 90mm, and it is SHARP! If I was a prime lens kind of guy I would definitely get it. I'm still swallowing the idea of spending $1700 to buy a 24-70mm f2.8 Nikkor lens... It's not going down well, I'll tell you that much, especially when Tamron's equivalent is 1/3rd of the price of the Nikkor.

    Fiasco,

    You're right! I haven't used the 50mm in a while, and the dust on the UV filter shows the obvious evidence
    I actually haven't used it since I got the 10-20mm and recently, the 105mm. I'm on the "new lens testing" phase hehehe.

    I stopped using the 50mm about a 2 weeks after I bought it. I prefer to use my 70-300mm wide open to get some nice silky bokeh. I'm more of a zoom lens shooter anyway. At the time it seemed like a no brainer purchase to get the 50mm. I know people who only shoot with a 50mm permanently on their cameras. Guess it's not for everyone.

    Posted a few new pics on my flickr stream. looking for suggestions on how to post-process one in particular. Can't post it here due to content, but it's "Sasha Teaser 3". There are background elements I may want to remove, maybe add a texture to it... Open to suggestions.

    My P&S is sort of permanent Live View ~ it is one of those also with an EVF
    (Electronic View Finder), so it's like live view through the view finder - or screen through the viewfinder.
    Not sure quite what you meant - but yes I do use my crumby Tripod with it at times - but the P&S is one of those with a flip out screen so it's fairly flexable.
    Got to admit however - I don't use the screen to take photos very much.
    Lot's of P&S only have a screen - which I find inconvenient - but you have to adapt when work hands you one and asks you to take some photos of stuf with it.
    (Lookong forward to the return of my D80 so I can get snapping properly again!!!)

    Thats the wierdest looking kookaburra I've ever seen.

    Sorry it's similar to my last post but I like the composition more, shame I didn't quite hit the focus. Must have had some movement or something.

    The kookaburra is part of the Kingfisher family of birds so that is what I am assuming it actually is - some sort of kingfisher.
    There are a lot of similarities.
