But I found out that when using the 50-200mm and trying to take close-up shot, the auto-focus didn't work... Does anyone knows why? Also, if using Live View, the auto-focus is quite slow as compare to using View Finder... Is this normal? I haven't read the manual yet, the answers might be inside the manual... Hehehe...
    How close were you to the subject? There is a min distance then the AF can focus

    I tried playing with the 50-200 lens.. The auto-focus (for 50-200) cannot work for distance ~2ft and below... More than 2ft, then the auto-focus can focus on the object.. Where can I find out more info about lens and the min distance of AF etc?

    Why press AF button and shutter at the same time ?
    1 Press AF button to focus ,
    2 then press shutter to take your picture.

    1) Welcome...

    2) I would suggest a decent tripod and a drybox, think there are more useful than a UV filter for kit lens... but u can still get it, a cheap hoya i think is $10-$12...

    tripod i think from $0(unwanted ones) to a few thousands(Sachtler) so depends on your budget...

    just buy what u can afford... spend some time and do some research... there are good bargains around... dun ask me what brand to buy, i will recommend u the most expensive ones...

    dry box is a box to put ur lenses/equipment in a lower humidity environment, thats all... so u figure it out...

    better buy a good UV filter, cos if the filter lens is too thick you may encounter dark or blur edges. get a ultra thin with multi coated filter, or better just get a lens protector. For this i brought a Hoya purple label, which i found no trouble with it. Or you may want to get a better one which is the pro one(I think so)

    For the dry cabinet better get one which is electonic one.

    Tripod also get one which is both light and can support 3X the weight of your camera. Cheap brand for tripod will be benro, fanscier.

    IMO just buy a normal Hoya UV will do for your kits lens, it dun makes sense for u to buy a S$100 plus filter for a kit lens.but of course this is a indiviual preferences.
