Get a good blower like the one DD123 is using. Don't get the blower with brush.
I second sticking with original batteries.
You got the 50 f1.8 at a very good price.
It is good to get a hood for your lens. Check out the mass sellers. Saw someone selling it.
so the netbook is like a necessity while carrying more camera lens may not be the priority?
ya, but since TS bought the kit 2 le, then no worries le.. just go out n shoot~!
Giotto Rocket Blower, it looks like a rocket. Don't accept anything else. Will be below $20, I guess. To me a lens hood is more important than any filter. Two accidents, two times the lens hood caught the blow. The hood is still fine, the lens also. Filters would have cracked already. Your B+W is perfect, no worries. For the hood check with the shops whether they have stock.
