    The voigtlander 40mm Ultron and 58mm Nokton are not that expensive u know...

    But to really use that 40mm, you need a FF cam. 58mm is perfect for portraits. On your D90, it has FOV of 87mm (FF).

    See the 58mm here...

    Come and join la. Our background is very similar. I used to shoot film and develop them myself, print myself. The equipment has advanced but the basic principles are still the same and nothing can replace a few decades of experience. Composition (the eye/instinct) and equipment goes hand in hand, though the eye/instinct part can to a certain extent make up for a deficiency in the equipment part. BTW, i shoot with P&S too most of the time, especially on my travels.

    Yup, for travels, unless I need the critical image quality, i'll travel light with my little P&S and 3-4 memory cards, 2 spare batteries.

    Heck why is everyone so darn sensitive these days har (including moi)? Must be the mushy weather!

    I donno about P&S man (I'm sure they can do the same in the hands of a good photog)... Did you poison yourself with the latest copy of Landscape Photography put out by Digital SLR Photography mag? A few pages into it and I lau nua liao... Feel like one day go some where really nice and freeze it out with a DSLR and UWA with filters...
