    Don,

    Definitely agree about IQ being a big part of the equation. If the 9-18 didn't exist I would probably have to own the 7-14. I tend to use most of my wide angle gear with a tripod so I did not feel the need for the extra stops wide open. Weight was a big factor since I tend to take the wide angle gear hiking a lot. Now the opposite is true for me on the tele end. I just gave in and ordered the 50-200 even though it is a bit much to carry compared to the 70-300.

    Nice.

    What's next Don? Seems like your bases are covered, unless you need one of the f/2 zooms! I have no other urgent upgrades now. I might get the fisheye at some point, otherwise all I want is a nice cheap super telephoto. The 50-200 is too short, and everything long enough is too expensive (as in $2500-$5000!) and really too big.

    A recent different one taken using "candle light" scene mode!

    Well, I thought I was all done but now I'm considering selling my two E-510's and picking up a used E-3, sigh...

    Should be lots on the market when the next flagship is released.

    A longer reach would be nice but no way can I justify a 300mm f 2.8 @ ~ $6000. And the truth is I didn't use the Bigma enough to keep it. The 50-200 + ec20 actually has enough resolution to stand up to cropping and is a much smaller "package"..

    GAS is probably going to have to be directed towards studio stuff

    Cheers, Don

    Nice. I've never seen that many types of tulips ever, much less at the same time. I believe my preference is for the second to last (but my preference has often been shown to be wrong). Sometimes the bokeh in these looks a little funny, don't know what could be done though...

    Thanks for the compliments guys - I had never known there were so many types of tulips before last weekend either

    And you're correct - it's Holland, MI. About 25 minutes from home.

    I put some more pics up in the Flower Thread too - should be enough flower spammage for a few days

    Holland Mi ... more links than just the name then I guess. Very colourfull shots MPT, my favourite is number 5, I just like the way the colours & the layers work on that one.
    Around every picture there's a corner & round every corner there's a picture
    - the fun's in finding them

    Ah, the good 'ol Kodak sensor in the E-500. Brilliant colours out of that camera without being oversaturated.
