    cameras and lenses

    While Im waiting for a cd to finish burning, I thought Id start this thread just for fun. It would be interesting to hear what cameras and lenses (accessories too) you all are using, and what you are seriously planning to get in the future (not stuff that you only wish for but would never spend the $$$ on). It would also be interesting to see what your favorite lenses are and why. Heck it might be cool if yall could also include a pic shot with your favorite lens as well. I hope people dont think Im a gear freak because of this, remember its just for fun.

I am also interested in getting the Pentax DA 12-24 when released (late this year) and the Sigma 150mm Macro when it is released in Pentax mount (listed as 'coming soon' on BHPhoto)...

    All I've got @ the moment is a D70 w/ kit lens. It sucks being a poor college kid.

    Lenses I want
    Nikkor 12-24 f/4
    Tamron 28-75 f/2.8
    Nikkor 70-200 VR f/2.8
    Nikkor 50mm 1.8

    I think those 4 lenses will be enough to satisfy any of my shooting needs.

    Future Gear I want
    Possibly whatever the D100 replacement is
    Canon EOS 1Ds MKII

    On the SLR front it's.


    Kodak DCS410 Pro
    Which doubles up as a full spec Nikon N90s
    Also I use a D70 (no link required) with an assortment of affordable lenses.

    A 28-80mm Nikkor that came with the D70
    A 35-80mm Nikkor that came with the DCS
    A 70-300 APO Sigma macro.
    A 50mm f/1.8.
    A Tokina 80-200mm f/2.8 MF. (Works very well on the N90s, metering is disabled on the D70)
    A Vivitar x2 macro teleconverter for a laugh. (works very well with the 50mm prime)
    Two flashguns that work in manual on the D70, one is dedicated on the N90s.

    Bags, filters, memory cards, three other Kodak p/s digitals and more stuff that I always forget.
    All the best, Paul.
    Kodak DC3200, CX6230, P850 + 0.7 W/A lens, P20 flash.
    Nikon N90s (35mm), D70 + Tamron 19-35mm f/3.5-4.5, Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8, Sigma 28-105mm f/4-5.6, Nikkor 50mm f/1.8, Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 APO Macro, Tokina 80-200mm f/2.8, Pheonix 100mm f3.5 1-1 Macro, Sigma 170-500mm f/5-6.3 APO.

    This thread will be a good reference for the insurance man if you gear ever gets stolen!

    My Current Gear:

    Bodies/Cameras:
    - Canon 20D
    - Canon Digital Rebel
    - Canon EOS 650 (35mm - cobwebbed)
    - Canon A300 (always in my briefcase)

    Lenses:
    - Canon 50 f1.8
    - Canon 85 f1.8
    - Canon 80-200L f2.8
    - Canon 18-55 f3.5-5.6 EFS
    - Sigma 18-50 f2.8 DC
    - Sigma 55-200 f4-5.6 DC
    - Tamron 28-75 f2.8

    - I have also been having a blast with an M42 to EOS adapter and some oldies but goodies like:
    + Promaster 28 f2.8
    + Takumur 50 f1.8
    + 2 Random ancient 135 f3.5's

    - and on it's way...Peleng 8mm Circular Fisheye

    Favorite lenses right now are the Tamron 28-75 (you all know my feelings about that one), Canon 80-200, and Canon 85.

    - The Tamron is my most versatile "Workhorse"...sharp, warm, consistent.

    - The Canon 80-200 is the lens I pull out when I want my images to pop...sizzling, contrasty, sharp throughout.

    - The Canon 85 is my newest lens, and the best portrait lens I have ever used...tack sharp with bokeh that can only be described as magical...

    I've posted images from the Tamron and Canon 80-200, here's a quick snap of my tired, hungry wife after a long hard day (Canon 85 f1.8, f2, ISO100, 1/6sec on a tripod, room lighting, no PS):

    did you get that fish on FM?
    I saw one for sale last week, it seemed pretty neat, but way wide.

    No, I went to EBay. I wish I'd seen the one for sale on FM, probably would have saved a buck or two. I can't wait to try it out!
