I wish there was a Nikon version of the Canon 5D.

I want to move to full frame photography but the D3 is far too expensive.

its as if you were shooting onto 35mm film....on most digital SLR's you might have a 18mm lens....but in equivalent you only get a photo which looks as if its taken by a 25-28mm lens......its hard to explain....if you research google you will probably get a better answer :S

Yeah full frame is basically a camera with a sensor that is 35 x 24mm big, regular DSLRs have sensors 1.3, 1.5 and 1.6 times smaller than that.

There are rumours on the internets about a consumer level Nikon full frame camera. The D10.

The rumours were true, but it's called the D700 not the D10. http://www.photographybay.com/2008/06/18/nikon-d700/

I bought the Nikon 55-200mm lens recently (i won't bore you with the letter and numbers that come after it, suffice to say it has Vibration Reduction).

I've only tested it around the house, but it seems bloody good - image quality is top notch, and the zoom is great (just like my old panasonic).

Just need a day or two to actually go out and take some pics

Good choice, that's a quite good lens. Make sure you don't get dust all over your sensor while changing them.

Yeah, i try to change them as quickly as possible with the camera facing down - seems alright so far actually. There is the odd particle of dust that shows up on a very blue sky, but you need eyes like a hawk to spot them.

However, there's an annoying speck that i can see through the viewfinder it's been there since the second day i've had the camera. I've tried blowing any dust off the mirror (dunno if that would help ), and cleaning the lens but had no luck.

It's just really irritating.

I've had a few dust specs come and go thankfully when they do appear they only appear in the sky, they're very easy to photoshop out though.

I really need another lens, the kit one is getting on my nerves a bit with it's passable zoom how much would you reccommend the 55-200mm, NBTD?

Well, i can't compare it to any other SLR lenses, but from just testing it out i'm quite impressed.

It's small (only a CM or two longer than the kit lens, but a bit bulkier), and doesn't seem to add too much weight to the camera. It focuses quickly and the VR is very useful.

Here's a few sample piccies i took (just random test shots), the colours seem true to life and the images are detailed - even on high zoom.

All these are unadjusted and original size




(edit- for some reason this won't upload full sized - but you get the idea)

It's probably about 2 miles from my house to Alexandra Palace (give or take), and the flats are a bit less than a mile. The lens was at full zoom for that pic.

If you make it full sized on imageshack you can just about make out the blue lamposts infront of the palace
