Yeah I think I have seen some of your photo's - I used to paint like that. I would like to explore the artistic side of photography, but also capture the beauty that surrounds us in this land.

Just missed out on a 20D - I can get a wicked deal on the 450D with two lenses - I will look at that tomorrow, along with the D80 :)

I just did !

Finally though bugger it and bought a 5d with the 'kit' 24-105 f4. I would have liked the 24-70 2.8 but it was just too expensive. The 5d MK II is going to be out of my price range and really I cannot see any great benefit for me at the moment.



Oh sweet!

Well done... nice choice.

The 5D kit is of course the exception to the "don't buy the kit lens" rule.... The 24-105 is a GREAT lens.

I'm still saving for the MkII... the idea of the video is really growing on me.. so likely to sell one of my DV Cams to help fund my purchase... The idea of 1080p with my nice SLR lenses is kinda droolworthy... Gonna be like having a Red but without the price tag.

Even @ f1.4 it still too 1/15.
Not too bad for handheld... too hungry to get the tripod or do anything too fancy.

You know, that to me is an awesome photo. It is not that I have anything against sushi (other than the taste) but I personally prefer outdoor, nature, and panoramic shots over food anyday. Nice work.
I took a similar one looking from Ruapehu to Egmont a number of years back from the top of the far west Tbar (then) at Whakapapa.

Climbing to the top of Ruapehu is on my list of things to do in the next couple of years.
