Thanks TSH, I am always tempted to call you THC like Ananda does.

Did you say you were a photographer? Maybe I can pick your brains one day?

I don't have any questions right now, I was wondering what lens to get for my Nikon D40 but I have decided on the 70-300mm VR.....if I can sell some stuff on Ebay to raise the money.

Phew! Damn Canonites, lol.

I only got my D40 just before Christmas, I had never done any photography before apart from a couple of pics on holiday if I could be bothered. I am enjoying it so far.

Canonites, lol.

Here is a pic of my cat, it was shot with a 70-300mm Sigma APO in low light, it has no DOF at all! LOL I actually learned what factors come into play for DOF after seeing this pic!

It was shot at ISO 800 and I just filtered out some noise with this new program I have called "neat image".

I realise it would be better if I had fitted her ear in!

I had a Sigma 70-300mm and decided it was too heavy so I sent it back...then I decided I liked it and ordered another...the other arrived is not as sharp as the one I sent back....

Soooo.....I am send that back too! I will just get the Nikon VR and have done with it, it costs more than twice as much as the Sigma but, oh well.

I recently tried out 3 P&S cameras and sent them all back too.....I never said I was sane did I?

Stone, I work for a camera/lens rental company and I can tell you... we have more problems out of Sigmas. It's disgusting. Granted, they go through a good bit more wear and tear because they're rentals (shipping, etc) but still... their repair rate is SIGNIFICANTLY higher than their Nikon/Canon counterparts. Plus, the actual lens construction (especially on the larger telephotos) is just crappy. The smaller Sigma primes and wide telephotos don't have as many problems, but those big boys just aren't worth the trouble.

Phal - any time! I'm no expert but I will certainly help out if I can.

Nands, if you don't like all this photography talk, you can PUT A SOCK IN IT!! LOL!!!
