    Nicholas,

    Camera gear is priced according to the concept that a photographer will pay and pay to account for their vanity. All manufacturers play up to this big time in their advertising. The reality is that many amateurs and quite a few wannabe professionals get caught up in brand war rubbish due to their blind allegience to what ever brand they are using. (it's a form of pe*is envy). The fact is that a good photographer with 3rd party lenses will turn out better work than a fool with all OEM pro glass.
    This is so well-said!

    Regards
    CK

    Well said Ian! If one were to spent more time studying on how to take better pix, we would not worry about having better gears!

    I remember during my Uni days, the "angmoh" in the photography class all uses second hand equipments and their pix ARE much better than the asian! In the class, the asian were all carrying "1st" class equipments, the "angmoh" were using 2nd hand Sigmas or some other lens. But they were producing "1st" class pixs!

    So Dear Nicholas, have you decided on what sort of photography are you interested in? Architecture? Landscape? or maybe simply in the daily life of ppl?
    me like Landscape
    and also parparazzi (haha just kidding)

    If you like landscapes, why are you mucking around with 35mm?

    Hey, low blow I like landscapes and have no inclination of switching to medium format.



    As for those with no scanner, can always bring the prints along to the next SEED/gathering to show others [waiting to see those D30 inkjet printouts ]
    I want to see those 'handheld for 1 second' shots that will put us tripod owners to shame.

    Says who? How do you know? Have you tried? I'll have you know I can hand hold my Horseman for 1s. 2s at a stretch. Don't need fancy IS stuff.
