too poor to afford the VR lenses (24-120mm VR, 70-200mm VR) i want...and the SB800 flash...
and the 80-200mm f/2.8D ED-IF AF-S Zoom-Nikkor Lens. (though if i got a 70-200mm VR, this would be pointless)

bought a Tamron AF28-300MM F/3.5-6.3 XR Di to replace the 55-200mm


:D :D

so now i've got 18-300mm covered :D :D

will probably look to buy a 85mm F/1.8D

sometime in the future. the 12-24mm super-wide...
and once funds are secured, the 28-300mm will be replaced with a 80-200mm (one of the best Nikon telephoto zooms ever...aside from the 70-200mm VR)



but for now, i'm very happy with the 3 lens setup i have.

specs? uh, what exactly do you want to know? :D

http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/compare_post.asp?method=sidebyside&cameras=canon_eos350d,nikon_d50,oly_e500&show=all

basically an entry level dslr, with some more features than the 350d or d50 like for example the innovative dust-filter, very solid body and lenses, 4/3 sized images and higher quality kit lenses than the competition...
drawbacks are the noise at high iso values and the slightly smaller viewfinder.

its only ~700? for the kit with both lenses though and up to canon and nikon in everything else but the noise at high iso levels.
as i am usually not using high iso values, the decision for the e-500 was clear...

and extensive review can be found here:

Also i want a laptop, and i need to save for the europe trip i'm taking in a month!

Yep, I gotta save it for car insurance, gas, and other expenses.

Sorry, but that's all I can contribute at the moment :lol:

But after seeing all the magnificient photos in the lens flair section I'm thinking about upgrading in autumn (well, shouldn't be too difficult on that level)

Yup - like you guys, really want to upgrade but can't afford it at the moment. Well, I have the money (like you) but the car needs new insurance and tax next month, and guess what? It comes out the same as an EOS350D. Doh! Damned priorities.

Anyway, I'm currently using a not brilliant point and shoot compact, an Olympus mju410 (stylus 410 for the Americans). This thing:



It's nothing great at all - the photos it gives are really average at best. But it's weatherproof, which is great given it's been trodden on, dropped in a bog, taken to the desert, then taken snowboarding two weeks later where it was fallen on a few times (hurt me more than the camera) and out on the bike in the pouring rain getting covered in mud. It's a robust camera, and I love it for that! :)
But it's definately time to upgrade to something that gives better photos, so I'm waiting for some money so I can start using my old EOS lenses again from my film EOS camera... :)

Possibly a bizarre question, but that bag... Who's the manufacturer and how pricey is it? And obviously how good is it? Is it actually your camera bag?
It's just that I've been looking for a bag like that for a while - a bag that you can carry you camera in easily and reasonably safely while not looking like a traditional camera bag (i.e. an obvious target when you're walking around London). I'm loving my normal shoulder satchel thingy at the moment for laptop or folders but would love a good camera version even more - but have been unable to find it. So, details please?! :D


Edit: In case you're wondering, my camera doesn't look much like that anymore... :) It's managed to pick up a few scratches and the sliding door ain't as smooth as it once was...
