Nice, older but still an excellent FF camera.

Awesome gear! I'm scrambling for some wherewithal to get the 70-200 f/2.8 IS before the Canon rebate ends ($200 rebate, ends 8/08).

LOL, right. I know that but still can't bring myself to call it a crop camera.

I was saving to buy that lens from B&H or Adorama and then someone posted one for sale on my local craigslist and I grabbed it up for $950 in new shape with UV filter.

Kent Rockwell's DX Dream Team:

18-55mm 3.5-5.6 NON-VR
10-24mm 3.5-4.5
35mm 1.8
55-200 VR

http://www.kenrockwell.com/nikon/dx-dream-team.htm

I agree with Kent as the lenses cover 80% of what MOST people photograph. I do not know why he chose the 18-55 NON-VR over the VR one though. Sports and Macros are a few examples not covered by his dream team.

What do you guys think?

Ken freely admits that you need a good BS filter when you read his page. Read his musical praise on the 18-200 then ask yourself why not just purchase one lens, carry it on your dx camera and be done with it. The 35mm f/1.8 is the only exception where you pick up speed and some IQ.

I have both the Nikkor 18-200 and the Tamron 28-300 (both IS) and to be quite honest, I like the Tammy alittle more for its reach. Optically they're about the same.

After shooting fixed apeture primes though, you really begin to see the optical short commings of these variable apeture lenses. If you really want to treat yourself to some awesome IQ, get yourself a prime fixed focal length lens.

My 400 f/2.8 is incredible. Yes it's way expensive but no I didn't pay a dime for it. It all came from shooting kids sports. The lens is almost 3D in nature. Once you produce images with glass like this, you're ruined.

You really don't have to spend alot to get a prime lens to get started. The Voigtlander 58mm f/1.4 is a good example. It's manual focus, but the focus ring is dampened like fine German optics and it's a pleasure to use. The images it produces are spectacular, and the lens retails for ~ $369.

The Nikkor 35mm f/1.8 is another example, but right now they're hard to find.

That sums up the other 20% I was refering to lol.

Hey guys,
Thought I'd share some pictures of my Denon D1001's recabled. It was the first time I soldered so I made sure to practice before working on the real thing. I used a Switchcraft 3.5mm plug. The cable is made from Mogami W2534. I decided to just braid it and leave it at that as I really like how it looks. Anyways it was a blast doing this and it honestly does sound better. The bass seems to be tightened up, the separation seems to have improved. Anyways, enjoy.





I know the Y split isn't that great but it works.

My favorite two lenses I own are the 50mm f/2 and the 24mm f/2.8 manual focus, Nikkor glass with all metal bodies and weigh about as much as my D60.
