    i had this problem recently.. but its not because the battery or my camera. it is because of the desktop charger that is causing the problem. Before i switch on, I already put the battery in.. some how it could charge for a while but it ended quite quickly.. I had to put in the battery after i switch one about 3-4 secs after its switch on then it will function properly..

    not sure about the above mentioned problem..

    Hmmmm.... I thought we're supposed to plug in the charger and power up first before putting in the batt? (I think it's written in the instructions.. can't recall exactly).. That's what I always do...

    I personally don't have the lens, though with all the poisoning going on, I am fairly familiar with it

    this is just my opinion:
    PROS
    1) sharp
    2) built like a tank
    3) f/2.8 allows lots of light in. Might be beneficial in low-light environment

    CONS
    1) limited range 11-16 only. I prefer up till 24mm, so it can be my "all-in-one" lens
    2) weighs like a tank

    sounds like a good combo.
    But for backpacking trip, carrying DSLR sounds like too much weight/size leh... don't forget you need charger, etc.

    This is one thing to bear in mind when bringing DSLRs for a trip, much more for a backpacking trip. D90 + Battery grip (If you have and bringing) + UWA + 50mm + kit lens + charger + cleaning kit + Tripod ====== NO JOKE!

    gd question, im also keen in the 11-16.. currently have the same stuffs as u..

    why do we need the battery grip? a spare battery not enough?

    Battery grip provides additional battery, as 2 battery packs will be in the grip. It makes taking portrait orientation shots easier as well.

    Most D90 owners tend to buy with the kit lens, then the first lens purchase would be:
    1) add in the 55-200 to pair with the kit lens
    2) add the 50/1.8 to try out photography with thin DOF (since lots of newbies want the "bokeh effect")
    3) replace the kit lens with either 17-50/2.8 or 18-200VR

    I would say option #2 seems to be the most popular.


    Well, if you want 11-16, what are you waiting for?
    battery grip adds weight to the camera body (besides the more battery juice), which can help with balancing the weight when you mount a heavy lens.
