What've You Got Your Eye On?

Been eyeing the D300, and I like the spec's on it, think it'll suit me down to the ground. Was previously kinda thinking about upgrading to the D200, but wasn't quite ready to take the plunge ... just as well, as the D300 looks very tempting

Anyone else planning to get the D300, or upgrade to something else?

Re: What've You Got Your Eye On?

The D300 sounds good but I'm locked into Canon, and the 40D sounds good too. But then I already have the 30D (and a 10D) so is it really worth upgrading? Will I take better pics with the 40D than with the 30D? Somehow I doubt it, so for now I'll resist temptation. Probably.

Re: What've You Got Your Eye On?

Have to admit silkstone that I did give fleeting consideration to changing over to Canon for my next upgrade but the lens issue would mean further expense, i.e. buying new lenses from scratch, which would make it a very expensive exercise

Re: What've You Got Your Eye On?

Another one looking at the 40D here, I was going to wait until Christmas time but with the price now under 700 (with cashback) I may not be able to wait now!. As I'm currently using the 350D it's definitely going to be a good upgrade.

...Oh, and a 580EX mk.II

...Oh, and a 50mm f/1.8

...Oh, and a EF24-105L IS

...Oh, and how do I pay for it all

Re: What've You Got Your Eye On?

I've just succumbed and got a shiny new 40D this weekend - having been granted spousal approval (I'm blaming her lack of sleep, but not complaining!).

Still playing around with it really but initial impressions are very positive.

I'm not sure the Auto-ISO is useful, but having ISO displayed constantly in the viewfinder is a massive improvement over the 20D.

The preview/review screen is SO much better than the 20D, too. Ditto the RGB histogram feature.

Live View should mean I can remove the Angle Finder C from my wishlist, too.

Now I must try and get some work done to help pay for it...

Not sure how it works on the Canon or what kind of shooting you do but on Nikon for sports and PJ it is often very useful. Remembering you can set upper and lower limits but use it with shutter priority to be able to stop the action and it will automatically up the IS if the light falls too far for max aperture.

Re: What've You Got Your Eye On?

I've had an "about face" recently and am sticking with the D200 (because it is an awesome camera) and am now on the hunt for a deal on a Nikon 105 vr macro.

Re: What've You Got Your Eye On?

well my next purchase is the Canon 100 - 400 is L, but have been thinking about upgrading my 30D for a 40D or do i hold out and get the successor to the 5D which would mean a big investment in a couple of of new pieces of glass aswell, but with no kids (yet) and all my plastic will be paid off early next year, might just go shopping....., hopefully my gf wont see this post!!

oh and these have taken my fancy as well

Canon 50mm 1.4f
Sigma 150mm macro
Canon 24-105mm L

Dont want alot do i?

Re: What've You Got Your Eye On?

In order of priority from top to bottom
  • A pair of D3 bodies c. 6000
  • The 24-70mm f/2.8 c. 1200
  • The 14-24mm f/2.8 c. 1200
  • A TC-14E II 1.4x teleconverter c. 300
  • The new 400mm f/2.8 VR c. 6000
  • The 200-400mm f/4 VR c. 4000
  • A D300 with MB-D10 grip c. 1300
So - just shy of 20K in total, with a probable initial spend of 14K or less. The camera bodies would be purchased here in the UK owing to warranty issues, but I'd hop over to NYC to pick up the lenses and TC, since

a) Nikkor lenses are covered by a worldwide warranty wherever you purchase them, and

b) the to $ exchange rate makes them far cheaper than over here.

Example: The 400mm f/2.8 costs 5500 here but retails for $7800 (3850) at B&H... a difference of 1650 or about 30%. Assuming that I can get all the above listed lenses for 30% less than their UK retail values, I'd end up paying just 9,000 for 12,000 worth of lenses. The 3000 difference is nearly the cost of a single D3 body!

Edit: forgot to add that I'd be selling at least one of my D2X bodies, if not both of them, after I've picked up the D3's.

How much does it cost you to make a trip to NYC to get these? i.e. how much are you effectively saving to go to US to buy lenses?

Re: What've You Got Your Eye On?

i dont have my eye on a new camera as the 400D is only a couple months old and i have a long way to go before even thinking of upgrading.... however what i would like next......

a nice wide angle lens, say the 10 - 22mm f3.5 - 5.6 USM ( aint gonna happen)
remote shutter release cable ( will happen )
an off camera sync cord for the 550eX ( may happen )

oh and a background and stand ( aint gonna happen ) lol

hey im realistic but no harm in wishing.

Just as a side note, I've had my eye on Sandra Bullock for some time now, and when one becomes available I'll be first in the line.

Re: What've You Got Your Eye On?

stupot - I can recommend the EF50/1.4, it's a cracking lens and probably my favourite (not that I have loads of lenses, but it's my favourite out of those!)

fionaB - The EFS10-20/3.5-4.5 is well worth getting IMHO. Your landscapes will never be the same again and it's just great fun to play with.

I personally wouldn't bother with a remote shutter release cable... I can't think of a situation where I wouldn't use MLU and a 3 sec self-timer to get over any shake issues on a tripod. And in those situations that I can't think of, I would probably want to try tethered shooting via USB or whatever.

The remote flash cable is an interesting one - I kinda want one of those but keep thinking I should just get a ST-E2 transmitter instead... that way I'd have a very neat yet powerful AF-assist in low light even when I don't want to use a (heavy) flash.

Currently I have 3 x $500 flight vouchers from Continental Airlines which I was given as compensation for an oversold flight; my wife, son and I volunteered to go out on the next available flight and were given hotel accomodation, meal vouchers totalling $144 and the flight vouchers.

If I book sufficiently in advance, I can get a return flight from Glasgow for around the 350 mark, so a single voucher lops 250 off the cost... meaning I only have to shell out 100 for my flight.

I've got relatives spread throughout the NY/NJ area so accomodation would also be taken care of. The only issue would be transport into and out of NYC to pick the lenses up in person... I'd probably do that by bus for about $60 return trip.

An alternative would be to have the lenses shipped to my relation's address and avoid both NYC sales tax and the hassle of travelling to the store. I'd still budget for going up to the city in case there were any issues with my purchases (you never know!).

Over and above that I'd just need a little spending money for food etc. whilst over. Any way you look at it, I wouldn't be spending close to the 3K spending difference

Re: What've You Got Your Eye On?

the wide angle is out of my league financially.. and the 400D only has a 10 sec timer on it which is a bit of a pain hence the reason why i want a remote shutter release
no real reason why i want the sync cable apart frm the fact that i enpy experimenting and as i have just got the flash its a good excuse

Neither; I'm looking at an asset finance scheme which would work out at around 350/month total or thereabouts. I need to pay the VAT element (which I reclaim) and 10% of total in advance, but even then that's still not as harsh as a five-figure hit on the bank.

I would love to get a lens in the 100-400mm range. Only reason I hold back on the Nikon 80-400 VR is becaused the AF is deemed a bit slow ..... so you keep waiting for a newer model ....& keep waiting & waiting ...

I'm really pleased to see genuine competitors to the Big Two - it keeps them on their toes.

You may jest , but I did look at going to Canon at the time, but prefered the feel & build quality of the D200.

Must admit the Canon 100-400L has the equivalent Nikon lens licked though IMHO.

Re: What've You Got Your Eye On?

I'm have 2xD300s on order together with MB-D10 Grips. I may also pick up an 18-200VR to throw on the D200 and keep in the car.

There is a niggling desire to have a D3 for low light, portraits, landscapes etc. But that would as VP's post illustrates mean an extra 2000 for FX lenses as well.

I have ummed and ahhed about the 200-400VR. If needs to come down a few quid yet to get me seriously looking.
