can i ask ... which Flash i should buy for my D70...i newbie...dunno so much ... haha??
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
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.
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.
