I am agonising over my next steps in photography. Should I go for some good primes. To help I have started using my old and cheap 50mm lens - examples in this album. Seems to work quite well. However will I get a lot more out of other focal lengths and much dearer lenses!!

A good friend let me try his very new Nikon D300 with 18-200 VR lens. It is a wonderful camera and the lens has a very seductive zoom range. However I didnt plan the morning tryout well - I tended to use it too much at close range and I was not conversant with all the AF options. Focus wasnt where I expected in several cases however still a few very nice shots.

I have enjoyed other members forays into B&W hence I have been encouraged to venture out a little. I will start looking at photos which might make candidates for monochrome. At this point "sepia" tones seem to suit more.

Holiday just after Xmas at southern beach and river resort. Starting to warm up to another spell of 40C plus days. Todays temp in Adelaide is going to be 43C.
A bit difficult to convey the oppressiveness of days of 40C plus - definitely restrict activities and try to find a cool spot. Seas lovely and cool but beaches are not all that cool and somehow showing people playing in the beautiful clear waters with lovely blue skies doesnt convey the whole message.

Great build quality, great ergonomics with huge zoom. However this all comes at a price - sensor still small though bigger than many so ISO400 plus is quite a stretch. Camera has great feel and features but needs good light.
