    Good job! You'll have the time of your life, except that B&H is not open on Friday night. It is operated by group of indivduals who respect the Sabbath ... and hold it dear. No business on that day. Order on Sunday.

    Best of luck with your new camera system.

    Check out this site for your lens. I went into the city and picked one up two weeks ago. The store is amazing. I didn't have time to browse because I was on my way to my sons football game. Good thing I would have maxed out the credit cards.

    and to throw another site in, I got mine off of Amazon (via cameta camera) for $150 +$6 shipping (cheapest I could find). But it seems they don't have it anymore.

    makes one wonder

    I wonder how much the input and comments from this forum play in marketing LOL wow as I said earlier the a700 is not the easiest camera to come by in the u.s. this week, and today Adorama is out of stock on the Tamron 70 - 300, as well as the above mentioned site through Amazon.I guess this could be viewed as a good thing for the Sony minority eh. Has anyone noticed tamron lenses for Sony also going up on ebay?? maybe the surge in 300 / 350 sales has something to do with it. Feels like and exciting time to be a Sony fan. Even though I was once warned not to be fooled by the "Sony cult" of propaganda and misinformation ! lol

    To be one with the camera one must learn the camera and know it as one knows thy self. it becomes one with the eye and the mind, both of which "see" what is of yor spirit, heart, and soul, {but the a700 adjusts the colors really fast} Master your camera but let it continue to challenge you. and you can always say that out of focus over exposed shot was a artistic experiment, you were pushing the limits etc etc.


    Ummm if there is a sony cult, do i have to pay dues? what about meetings? we don't do anything involving sharp pointy objects and our body parts?

    Well ... there are a good number of Minolta/SONY boards that have come up in the past year. Whether or not they offer much more than lens opinion and some critique, well ... that's hard to say.

    Personally, the DCRP has been a good place for some honest feedback and its fun to watch the jaws drop when you cough up a decent composition or two. Admittedly, there are some "prize-winning" questions that are occasionally asked. That's always fun.

    Not too many cultists, though ... that sharp feel is the price of Carl Zeiss-glass in your wallet. An occasional bruise is one thing, but this is out and out ... savage.

    Any exif info for this picture? I saw this a while back on your flickr and really like it. I know the moon is close to setting I believe, (at least close to the horizon), but how big was it really? (I'm having trouble getting a sense of perspective lol )

    I'm new to photography and the terminology, but what's PP? Is it photoshopped together?
