    The 70-200 isn't very good on Fx. Get over it!
    There are plenty of samples / examples on the net - go find one yourself
    instead of your screaming nyah-nyah with your fingers stuck in your
    ears like a small child.
    You obviously care about the majority - you moron - you are claiming to
    be able to speak on their behalf!

    Thanks for all the comments.

    For now, but subject at change at any time, I am going to plan on getting
    a D300 with a 16-85mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR AF-S DX Nikkor Lens. I don't care
    that it doesn't have quite the range of an 18-200, this range would suit
    me.

    I am still using my TLR while hiking so if I am happy waiting. I may just
    wait until year's end and get a really nice lens as I am still hesitant
    spending money on a DX lens, but it is still some $500 less than The
    lenses I would really like to have.

    Now lets see if Canon releases a 6D or Sony a world beater that would
    screw up my planing and budget :)

  3. I was wondering when you were going to get your dumb ass back from limbo.
    Anyway, Poly, how's that hands on experience with the D3 and 70-200VR going?
    Just say "Obama" and I'll give you a Ritz cracker with a little extra kosher
    rock salt on it.

    You're probably not giving up as much on the long end as it
    appears. Thom Hogan has an interesting web page where he evaluates
    most of Nikon's lenses and defines several different 'kits' for
    different needs. Here's what he has to say about one of them (and
    it probably won't be long before I end up with this pair too) :

    Why should I. I can tell you that a 1985 Yugo is a piece of shit
    without having hands-on experience. I can tell a lot about you too.
    Lol - Americans.

    That's the used price, I think, as I paid more than $200 for my gray
    market one from B&H, new.

  7. Sorry, Rita, I was wrong, you are not "probably" an upgrade
    junkie, you are an upgrade junkie in DeNial. (Which just
    isn't a river in Egypt any more.)

  8. And Rita was never meant to post in this place.
    .... a couple billion nobodys more or less won't change Rita's
    arguments, for they are based on impeccable, abstract logic, not
    on facts.
    Translation: "frederick, you have a point there".
    .... because the lens never was meant to be a FX lens, Rita
    only looks at DX usage.
    No, ridiculous Rita really bothers us.

    Yes. That's the main problem with it - and it's a pain in the ass,
    isn't it. Great strap though.
