Re: Hi from Shropshire

Thanks, I'm facsinated to see the poll concerning nikon choices.

I have to say I fell in love with the 5700 when I first picked it up....it just felt nice. It was well beyong my means at the time (2004.....600!!!) but my Dad came to my rescue.

I was some soon ( a leeeettle....) put out by the less than brilliant view finder.....some thing I'm looking to address.....unfortunately on a (strict) shoe string I'm afraid.

I ve been offered a D80 but whther to save up for a d200 body an dhave a wider flexibilty of lenses available to me is a conundrum. It was a discussion of this nature that got me to this forum!!

The "kit" lenses which go with D80s seem to get a bad press... but if I bought a fixed focal lenghth lens +D200 that's going to be very limiting.

Are the kit lenses as bad as they say?

Re: Hi from Shropshire

There seem to be few Nikons in the classified here, which must say some thing for them I suppose!!

Welcome to Pixalo David

The 18-70 kit lens is very good, but you can always buy a body and lens(es) separately.

Both bodies will accept the same lenses so either will give you the same lens choices.

Thanks ....and thanks for the tip.

That's me to the left by the way just so you know who you're talking to.

An imperfect shot as I'd just hurt my back at that point.

Re: Hi from Shropshire

I'm currently working with a Nikon D5100, it's the first professional grade camera I've worked with, and it's absolutely amazing, check out this sample image of my photo's.

I was showing the D200 to my Dad a few days ago. I just gave him the shipping box containing the camera (+lens) and instruction manual.

The place went so quiet after 20 mins Mum just asked for her book ....
