Saturday, January 26th, 2008 Posted in Equipment | No Comments »

There has been rumblings and photos all over the forums of Nikon's new 16-85mm VR lens. Unfortunately it is a variable apeture (3.5-5.6) and not a constant one...I thought a f/4 would have been perfect. Even though, I'll keep ...

I've finally managed to put together a few shots from the D80. So far I've been very happy with it. The 10 MP make a big difference when it comes to cropping. It's also just flexible enough that I can ...
