Gone, can I get "Nikkor AI-S 24mm f/2.8" added under my name please?

nuclearjock, I'm looking into getting a flash, since you all three that's I'm looking at... Do you think the SB-600 is worth getting over the 400?

Damn... I want to pull the trigger really soon but I can't decide on which to get for now...

Sigma 10-20mm f/4.5~5.6 EX DC HSM - $521

EF-S 60mm 60 f/2.8 MACRO USM $463


Something that is bothering me, is it me or the EF-S 18-55mm IS won't cut it for night shots? They all get too... soft even from f/5.6 through f/8 and using manual focus (Yeah, I changed the sharpness all the way to 7)

Yeah... vandalism occured in my street at around 2AM (On the night from Sunday to Monday, this was shot last night after getting home from work), it's a unique scene. Someone wanted to burn down the recycling containers and took 4 cars along, one is not there as it was still moved by a fireman, it was sided with the silver Audi A4... I guess in between the unfortunate event, some luck, the Audi and the Peugeot 206 were diesel, else the damage would be really bad from the explosion, the red 106 IS petrol, few minutes later it would have been a disaster.

Here's the photo:


Don't know if the EXIF is still available after the reize from hosting, but it is as following. And I also used a tripod to assist.

ISO Speed: 400
Exposure time: 2.5 sec
F stop: f/6.3
Focal range: 55mm

I do and here's why. Higher guide number, you can buy a nice Stoffen diffuser for the 600 which really makes for some nice "soft" flash effects, and finally the 600 can be used as a slave should you acquire an 800 or 900 down the road. The 900 is definately not worth the $480 I paid for it, but it's fun to play with. I haven't tried the colored gels yet.

The 400 is very compact though and the price is right, although not that far from the 600. Take a look at both of them in a shop and see what U think.

Edit:

Moots,
I U decide U want the 400, I'll be happy to sell U mine for $50. I've shot < 50 pics with it and have the original box, paperwork, etc. Brand new for all purposes. But I think you'll like the 600 once you check it out, and the Stoffen diffuser (~$20) is a big deal in terms of picture quality.

It depends on what you want to do more of in the near future - macro shots or landscapes (and other uses for a wide angle zoom). You wouldn't do wrong to buy either, as both are great lenses.

And about the shot, it doesn't look too terribly soft. Lenses are generally softest at their widest and narrowest focal length. Check out DP Review's MTF widget for that lens; if you move the dial to 18 or 55mm, you will see the sharpness drop.

My biggest problem with the 18-55mm is that doesn't reproduce color that well (I seem to get a greenish cast, particularly at night).

I'm leaning towards the Macro, I love taking macro shots too much to skip it, I guess the wide shots will have to wait a couple of months. And such small aperture will not help with night shots, as with the macro having f/2.8 will help.


Well, about the softness, according to the review site I guess it's just about right, I have to learn not to expect that much from a bundled kit , although it takes quite sharper photos on daylight or using flash, or that's just me

Thanks alot for the help and for that link, I completely forgot about that site, next time I'll check to see if a determined lens is working accordingly through it.

I'm also looking forward to getting a gorillapod in the future. Is this the one I should look for?

Well, be glad you don't have the previous version of that lens, the EF-S 18-55mm (non-IS), it is a royal piece of garbage. I had that lens when I had the XTi. There were a lot of gripes in reviews about how bad that lens was in comparison to Nikon's 18-55mm kit lens, so Canon revamped the design. So believe it or not, the new version, that you have, is worlds better than the previous lens. But it's still a low-end lens, so it performs as well as sub $200 zoom lens can.

Yes, that's the Gorilla Pod to get. There is another older version that doesn't have the quick release function.

OK, I'll jump in. My current kit is considerably cut down from what I used to have (I still REALLY, REALLY, REALLY miss my 1D3)..

Anyway, here is what's in the dry-cabi for now...

Canon 40D
EF 24-70 2.8
EF 70-200 2.8
EF 85 1.2 Mk2
EF 50 1.4
EF 16-35 2.8
EFS 18-55 (can't remember the apertures - it's the wife's lens)
Sigma 8mm CFE
Lots and lots of accessories...

For those interested, some of my photos --> www.pbase.com/cyber_m0nkey

Nice lens collection. Question - what lens is "EF 1.4 Mk2" exactly?

Wow... it was that bad

Alright, I'll get one of those, the quick release function is pretty handy, it avoids having to screw the camera to the pod everytime you want to use it.

I'm going to do some calculations to my budget, and if it allows me to, I'm pulling the trigger for that EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro.

I'm going to do some calculations to my budget, and if it allows me to, I'm pulling the trigger for that EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro.
Yep, I remember having shots so soft with the old 18-55mm that I thought they were out of focus. The 60mm macro is a good choice, extremely sharp lens.
