    Just that I am waiting for sale when Canon throw in more freebies or reduce their price lower during Mid Yr Sale. Now they don't have extra Canon battery leh.

    Maybe I shoot Wide angle most of the time.. therefore can keep to 1/35 s. No High ISO, Shoot with Wide Angle lor. :-}

    Coming from a Nikon Die Hard.... er.. and Tokina.... acceptable....

    1. Since you just started.. get a SB800 (2nd hand)... Dump the SB600 - good for spare.
    2. Invest in a SB900 if you think you will still be shooting for the next 3 years and have intention to get op to 200mm f/2.8 lens. :-}

    Forget about Third party... Nikon has this 3rd party lens and flash incompatibility issue.... with some Tamron and Sigma lens

    Cheers!

    wow! start thinking of work...graduating this yr? what course u taking now?

    18-200 is convenient lens. Pic quality shld be ok if u know how to use it
    as for flash, if u can afford, get new flash. You never know how the previous owner use it. Sometimes flash spoil easily.

    Talking about flash. That day at SB you were mentioning about Canon 580 EXII can go up to 200mm? Confirmed? Cos i thought i saw somewhere it still stated as 105mm only.
    Anyway thats part of my upgrade also. Shooting 200mm with 430EX II, the flash can't reach, so kinda dark.
    Yeah and Nikon has a much better iso noise handling unlike canon. For 450D, at ISO400, noise already start to appear and its apparent in dark areas. ISO800 has visible noise, think i can only accept 50% of it.
    I presume 50D should have slight advantage over 450D since its a CMOS sensor.

    Yeah go for SB900. Buy once n for all, and use it for many many years.

    580 higher guide no can reach further. If use flash often, can keep 430 as backup.

    Not the Canon Flash.. Nikon SB900... up to 200mm. 450D... also CMOS right? D300, D700 is dark places.. noise also will show... Indra spend $44USD on Noise Ninja.. The picture looks sharp and clean.

    Not Good enough to sell pictures, Not Good enough for events, Has its Limitations in Low Light. Very Significant signs of vignetting. Good enough for Travel, Practice composition, Find Shooting Style. Good enough for scouting.Due to the many sections and moving parts.. perform excellently in collecting dust
