Perhaps adding onto your homeowners policy as a floater/rider? I have my firearms and my wife's jewelry added on to my policy. I guess I should add my gear to it as well.

check with your agent. renters and homeowners insurance companies can cover it.

I've bought and sold a ton of gear, I just switched to Nikon from Canon last year to keep things interesting. I have a P&S for motorcycle trips etc.

Stay warm bigblock!

May I join also?

This thread is so cool!

Humble Gear:
DSLR: Canon XSi, 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS
P&S: Olympus Stylus 9000

Been into P&S for years. Recently, I decided that I was ready to actually learn about photography and graduated to a DSLR system. And I thought computers were an expensive hobby!!!

Next on the list is a decent macro lens. Any thoughts on this?

Some practice shots w/kit lens:

This lens was discontinued awhile back but I also have a copy and love it for kind of a walk around lens. Super sharp. Welcome to the dark side!!


Foxie, you gotta stop eating that rich stuff B4 bed time. Gives you strange dreams.

Some practice shots w/kit lens:
That's a great macro lens, dead sharp. Others to consider are the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 macro and the Tamron 90mm f/2.8 macro, both excellent macro lenses. With macro lenses, the longer the focal length, the further away you can be from the subject at 1:1 mag ratio. However, the longer the focal length, the harder it is to hand hold shots.

Thanks, that is helpful. The Tamron looks tempting (for what I can spend), but I think I might miss the IS feature on the Canon. I was hoping to use off-tripod sometimes. Is that even realistic?

I played around with the Canon 100mm for a while, macro is not really my thing. The 60mm ef-s is supposed to be a nice lens also.
Nice architecture shots, I love to shoot buildings.
Check out the Fred Miranda Forums, that's where I buy and sell gear.

Thanks, me too! The university here does an excellent job maintaining their buildings around campus. Many of the older ones are adorned with hand-carved sculptures and the names of great thinkers. I've lived here for 17 years and I still can't stop admiring the beauty of these things as well as the effort it took to create them.

It's gotten a little nicer here, I'll post some shots soon or maybe get my act together and join out Flickr group.

I'll check out Miranda, Thanks!

IS? Maybe you're thinking of the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L IS? That's a different story. I was referring to the non-L Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM. The 100mm L is very expensive and while a very good lens, the reviews I've read say that the IS isn't that effective at macro working distances. Don't expect to find IS on any other macro lens or prime. The 60mm is fairly easy to hand hold considering the focal length. I use it as a normal prime all the time. Here's a hand held shot with the 60mm:
