Hi guys,

I finally decided to get a D70s rather then a 2nd hand 20D...
But i need some suggestions on lenses.

I gonna get
1) D70s Kit + free 1 gb cf (from CP)
2) SB800 Flash (should i get from CP too or else where?)
3) Extra battery- EN-EL3a (from CP)
4) Sigma 10-20mm f/4.5-5.6 EX DC HSM
or Tamron SP AF 11-18mm f/4.5-5.6 DI II LD IF
or just a Nikon Prime lens- AF 50mm f/1.8D (from CP)
5) A good camera backpack (any suggestions?)
6) and lastly a Dry Cabinet or box (any suggestions too??)

My total budget is $3K MAX. If u suggest getting a Nikkor 12-24mm VR lens which cost $1600++ Sad to say.. how i wish it would appear right infront of me like "poooh!"

FYI i have been shooting alot using my friends' DSLR so i'm no newbie to DSLR, but only to the accessories like bag, filter or lenes... Previously i'm using a semi SLR Olympus C-4000... survived for 3 years with me but i really cannot tahan the noise level anymore and have been planning for a replacement for the past 1 year...

pls enlighten me guys!

thank u all ;)

Get the D70s/Sb800/50 f1.8 and not forgetting the dry cabinet(30L size) will set you back by about $2700..

Go for a digi cabi 30L dry cabinet for a start, cost about $99 and available from carrefour or other shops. Check out the website @ http://www.digihub.com.sg

As for backpack, I am using a tamrac velocity 9 slingbag. Check out the website @ http://www.tamrac.com

D70s kit + SB800 + Crumpler Bag + UV filter.

1 batt will do. wait untill your batt getting slower to be charged up, or faster to be flat that time, then only you buy a new one. it's more like h/p batt.

bag must carry body + 2 lenses + flash, dry cab can wait. cause your cam always in the bag. but must store your bag in dry place. IMHO

Mushrooms are actually fungus also, so how did they reproduce? Via spores located underneath the head, same thing for len, there's fungus spores also.

So, it is better not to have circulated air in dry cab to prevent it spread to other lenses :sweat: .
