    Default What to get?!!!

    I have a problem that i can't seems to solve and i hope you guys out there can help me out.

    I lately went back to analog and had bought myself a FM2 and a 50mm f1.2 AIS...
    I feel digital technology is too diff to keep up with... trying to 'spot-on' a good set of equipments has cost me much savings too...

    Below is a list of my equipment.
    1) D70s kit ---- trying to sell cause i can't meter w/ my 50 mm AIS on it.
    2) 70-300 mm G Non VR---- also trying to sell.
    3) 18-200 mm DX ----- am considering to sell it, why...
    4) 80-200 mm ED w/ tripod collar
    5) FM2 ---- Back to basic.
    6) 50 mm f1.2 AIS

    Want to get list
    1) A flash!
    2) 17-35 mm/ 18-35 mm
    or
    2) just a 20 mm
    3) a good DSLR

    i am really confused and don't want to make any wrong move again... Please help.

    Yours turly,
    Simon

    Eh... the price of a 70-300G (non VR) is much lower than that.... The price u gave is for the VR version which is not out yet...

    Check the current 2nd hand pricing in the buy/sell forum.

    Hi Astin,
    Is metering important to you now? especially when you can preview your image rightaway with digital SLR?

    I am using my 50mm on my D70s and previewing it as i take... however, most of the result still far from ok.

    So whats your take?

    SGD$300 according to Nikon.com.sg

    The 18-200mm VR seems interesting...
