Sounds good to me Bloody expensive time of the year! But the kids enjoy it..
Anyways guys, the urge to buy another camera has beat me. I fought it best I could... Had a big fight with my wallet last night and it ended up storming out. Credit cards and all! Luckily I'm faster than it. A very clumsy rugby tackle followed and I soon had it on the ground in the front garden. Then after picking up my visa card and swivelling it in it's hand 'Eastwood' styley, it stood and looked at me (neighbours are out watching) with nothing short of venom in its eyes! But after a short face off I was just too fast for it. I was able to perform (even in bad light) a swift (but highly effective and well rehearsed) 'Boston crab" (google it). I've rehearsed this many times, but its normally my wife performing it on me, so it was nice to be the winner on this occasion. It didn't take long after that for it to see things my way... It shuffled back into my back pocket and we haven't spoken since. But I did buy a new camera!
Anyways, $200 for a spankers Nikon d3100 with kit lens was too much of a bargain. This should keep me going for now.. I'm not expecting it to out-perform my zooming Fuji in every area as I'm wise enough to know 'its the photographer not the camera' that matters most. But it will be better for practicing on full manual me thinks.
Bye bye darlin.....
Based on my limited experience with Digital Cameras, I'm sure you'll be very pleased with your Nikon purchase.
Much as I like my Canon G12 and Fuji X20, they are no match for the versatility of my Nikon D90. I usually use either a 24mm f/2.8 or 35 mm f/1.8 or 60 mm macro f/2.8 lens.
