adding a list of "Product reviews"... here in the newbie share thread.
yes, i know google is our best friend, but they churned out as much irrelevant things as the relevant ones. some sites i used give very good reviews with cross reference and comparisons. ken rockwell does it (ok, i'm sure other things are said abt him) but the thing is many reviews do not make comparisons and hence may not help the newbies much in their confused mind of state.
i'm looking for such personal experiences from you guys with regards to similar review sites that places some connection to the user as well as comparable equipments, and not just review that review just the tool itself.
i only know a little abt nikon. so other brands users, as well as for other things like bags, filters, flash or anything, do contribute.
