Also is it Large Fine or something else. I cannot find any details on this. I believe that JPG is only used for...

For RAW files definately Nikon software, either the free ViewNX or CaptureNX. For color they're the same, but for b&w conversion CaptureNX has more options and gives better results. I have not been able to recreate the proper colors in other software, like Lightroom. If you're using your own curves, you can probably work with other software, but Nikon's own conversion gives a much better starting point. CaptureNX is not that stable though. It's easy to use but not very...

I'm probably just going to buy the body with a 18-200mm lens and a 50mm f/1.8. I'm mainly going to use these for urban landscapes with portraits. Is this a good buy? Anyways, thanks again for the help, Its really narrowed down my choices! Sounds like a great setup for a first DSLR! I doubt you'll need more than that...

Only logically deducible conclusion therefore is that for all intents and purposes, in most situations, they're equal. Apparently there are enough cases for and against to prevent any kind of majority opinion or consensus.

It's not quite the same pricerange At that point I'd rather get a Voigtlander 21 or 15 for my Leica M6. For fooling around though, nothing beats $26 lenses!

THX I will let you know. I found it in a thrift store like new for $26.00 usd. So if it does not work, to Ebay it goes. I will take a $ 9.00 usd adaptor risk. No, I said FX and meant FX. My kitlens goes to 18mm at f3.5, on DX that's nothing special. It's FX where...
I guess if it was cheap, and fills FX, it might very well be worth it. I wouldn't mind one If you know what kind of mount it is you could probably get an adapter on ebay. A quick look around google says m42 but I'm not sure.
The Police seem to have a whole bunch of new SACD hybrid remasters out, all digipacks I was soo tempted to pick up at least Zenyatta Mondatta (I got a real serious case of digipack-fetish ), but decided I was way over budget already but yeah, they're cool. great musicians too (Copeland drummed for Peter Gabriel amongst others), from back in the day when bands could actually play... I find I'm totally burnt out on their hits though, can't stand them anymore. with...
well, I can see memorychips holding music somewhere in the future, like in solid-state MP3 players right now. memory has to become a lot cheaper to allow 80 minutes of WAV tho... I guess a lot depends on how music and the internet get integrated. do the masses move to downloading the music as just the media (just the tracks they want, and no booklets or fancy digipacks), and how big will the market for non-virtual artwork and quality really be. you mustn't forget the...
