That is one good lens
How much would one of those set me back?
Cheers. And congratulations from a very jealous 70-200 f/4 user
Tee hee, that's why Nikon don't produce an F4, to make the canon f4 users jealous (and to make us poor )
Almost full moon here
Here's some of my favourites from the last week or so:
Last one - excellent
Amusement park rides at the Santa Monica pier:
Testing out 'heart-shaped' bokeh on the 17-50 f/2.8 - I think I can safely say the experiment failed p):
Crescent moon picture. I actually took this as a wallpaper for my Pakistani roommate:
None of them are particularly nice, I know. Posting for suggestions, comments, crits and the like.

Haha. Never mind then.
Tbh, you don't really need this sort of lens. I just got it because I want to shoot professionally eventually, and well, i wanted it I have a 70-300VR lens that cost around £400, and you could still get an 85 1.8D that costs around £350, and even then; you're still at less than half what the f2.8 zoom costs.

Nice Greg. I have the VR1 version of that lens and the pairing of my 17-35 and the 70-200 consists of about 90% of my work. I also have the older 80-200. Everything I've seen of the new version you have is impressive.
It's that time of year again. This time I brought flashes.
Anyone got any idea what this caterpillar is? found it on my doorstep when I came home from work just now. Couldn't believe how big it was.

edit: quick search of Google images shows it to be an Elephant Hawk Moth.

Work sent me to Germany in June. While not strictly new (it was 3 months ago), I only just found the time to process most of the pictures. Here are some of my favorites, and the rest are in my Flickr.
The Virgin Mary atop the Mariensäule in Munich.
Poplar trees lining the rows where the barracks once stood at Dachau.
Coins in a washbasin at Dachau.
A view of the Bavarian countryside with the Alps in the distance.
Damn, that one is stunning!
I agree Chris - great shot supermonkey!
