I have a Canon XTI 400D with a battery grip. I have a Canon f1.4 50mm lens and a Sigma 70-300mm zoom/macro lens and of course the old 18-55mm kit lens. My next two toys will be the Canon 430 speedlight and some kind of wide angle lens, but I haven't made up my mind on which one yet. I got the Opteka battery grip to try and save a few $$$$ and it had good reviews, but I've been getting gremlins in my camera ever since I put it on. Mainly its been using the meter to adjust shutter speed and the thing will suddenly lock up on the BULB setting and will not come out unless I turn the grip itself off. Kind of annoying, but I tightened a couple of loose screws in the grip and cleaned the pins off really good and it's been ok for a few days now.

Thats some serious coin in lenses, damn.

A 80-200 f2.8 is my next lens.
I shoot a D80 almost all the time now, I have a D200, but its been collecting dust for a while now, just have a thing for the D80 right now I think.
I use a batter grip at times, but only for the vertical shutter release. Seems alot of people use them just for the extra battery power though.

Just cause I can (I think) I have a 35-70 f2.8 for sale if your interested, its like new.

I also have 2 SB800 strobes with softboxes and wireless trip for sale too, but I dont think many of you do the type of photography that needs strobes.

Stay away from the VR Nikon lenses. They suck. I sent two 70-200 lenses back in favor of my old 80-200 S wave lens.

The 80-200 isnt a VR lens.
I have the 18-200 VR lens and I love it. I use it for just about everything lately. For being an f3.5 - 5.6 it takes great pictures. Its on my camera most often. Even been shooting studio type stuff with it lately. Although the 28-70 f2.8 is my absolute favorite lens ever, its just in small rooms its just not wide enough.


Al The Killer, hit me up when you have the money and we'll talk
Its taken about 5500 images only.

I use a Canon Powershot S2IS and I love it, takes great pictures, and I'm a novice. I still have a lot to learn about photography, but I'm sure once I get better at the functions I'll upgrade to something with interchangable lenses.

I have heard good things about the 18-200. I thought it would make a great vacation/personal use lens. Way too slow for serious news work, but fine for times you don't want to lug three lenses around.
I was just giving you a heads up about the 70-200. Dealers like to push them right now when you can get a 80-200 for less $$ and it's a way better lens.
I was shooting SEC basketball with a 70-200 VR lens using four white lightning 1500's at around f/8. The players' jerseys were in focus but their face was out. It was weird. Three other guys at work had the same problem.

My other set of equipment includes a Nikon F3/P, 105mm f/2.5, 55mmm f/1.2, and a full wet B/W darkroom. Thats the fun stuff.
