    Agreed....I just got back from the camera store with some new goodies, but I have to go back and make an exchange. The contents of the box wasn't what I was buying....

    I'll list my purchases when I get back

    LOL Gary. new lens is a ways off as I want a nice tele prime and we are talking major cash as you know. Is canon crack stronger than nikon crack ? oh and how is the trip going ?

    having only tasted of the canon crack i have no basis for comparison, BUT i will say that the canon crack is mighty strong

    Decided to resurrect the most popular thread (by replies).

    Just got a used 80-400VR today. For a song. Turns out the guy upgraded to the 200-400, thought he would still use the 80-400...and he wasn't. So his wife told him to get rid of it.

    It's in really great shape except for a very small mark on the front element that doesn't affect the pictures. Before this opportunity arose, I was thinking of the newer Sigmas (before posted their little blurb) or maybe getting one 300/4 prime and then the Tamron 2.8 zoom.

    Items on the list:

    1.7 TC, 14-24.

    Item #1 on the /wish/ list:
    300 2.8

    Other then that, I think I'm good until next year on bodies, but I'm pretty much done with DX lenses for now.

    Don't forget a few Ducatisâ„¢, 24LII, 35L, 16-35II, a few 1TB HDs, etc.

    Plus you'll need a FW card reader. Trust me.

    Picked up a Nikon 70-200VR last week used at a good discount. The lens wasn't used much and looks brand new. So, I got a TC-17E II on my buy list now to go with it.

    This gives me a good travel lens (18-200VR), sports lens (70-200VR) and wildlife lens (80-400VR). A good line up when you add in the 50 f/1.8 lens for portraits and really low light.
