I have a problem that i can't seems to solve and i hope you guys out there can help me out.

I lately went back to analog and had bought myself a FM2 and a 50mm f1.2 AIS...
I feel digital technology is too diff to keep up with... trying to 'spot-on' a good set of equipments has cost me much savings too...:bheart:

Below is a list of my equipment.
1) D70s kit ---- trying to sell cause i can't meter w/ my 50 mm AIS on it.
2) 70-300 mm G Non VR---- also trying to sell.
3) 18-200 mm DX ----- am considering to sell it, why...
4) 80-200 mm ED w/ tripod collar
5) FM2 ---- Back to basic.
6) 50 mm f1.2 AIS

Want to get list
1) A flash!
2) 17-35 mm/ 18-35 mm
or
2) just a 20 mm
3) a good DSLR

i am really confused and don't want to make any wrong move again...:dunno: :bheart: Please help.

Yours turly,
Simon

Eh... the price of a 70-300G (non VR) is much lower than that.... The price u gave is for the VR version which is not out yet...

Check the current 2nd hand pricing in the buy/sell forum.

Get a good quality 2nd hand 20mm (new if u have the $), and u can use it on yr D70s and FM2...
Hi Astin,
Is metering important to you now? especially when you can preview your image rightaway with digital SLR?

I am using my 50mm on my D70s and previewing it as i take... however, most of the result still far from ok.

So whats your take?

Oops, ID the wrong lens... The 70-300mm G is the following then?

SGD$300 according to Nikon.com.sg

The 18-200mm VR seems interesting...
