Dope pics guys.

Anyone know what's a good everyday lens for d40? Except from the kit lens. For all around any type of shooting. Thanks in advance guys.

Is anyone interested?

^Qoute myself to remind everyone (or share w/ those that missed it) of the "on-going assignment", whatever you want to call it, the "wizard/witch trip"

OK, so I took my shot over the weekend, nothing amazing but I did the "assignment" and hummm... I have to say it will be tough because the toy is so small BUT I'm sure all of y'all who participate will manage and get creative. I took several shots at random location (but I guess we should share 1) so I'm going with this one...

1st stop DC and off she goes...
1 stop @ Nationals Park - View Large On Black

As I think about it, image @ people faces and reaction as they see me take a picture of this toy. I did ship the toy to Kickmatic23 today and it was only $1.39 (and consider I used a rather big padded envelope because I already had it), but placed in something lighter and smaller I bet the cost can be less, at any rate that's only 3-4stamps. Next up (after Kick), I guess who ever PM Kickmatic first (w/ shipping address) and can coordinate, then he will update us. Take your time but if we can maybe take pictures on the weekend and ship on Monday, we would see a new image approx. every week... maybe.

What else, Oh can someone qoute me on the next page image cause I hate being at the bottom on previous pages. image @ being overlooked. LOL Oh, and more new pics on my Flickr and as always feel free to C/C. Peace!

too good of a deal with the zoom lens basically for free. I can sell the zoom lens for $200 and basically have the XSI kit for $545, bananas. Plus the vid isn't that smooth on the T1i, I'll wait for more video advancement.

post #11841 of 14562
so I have a question for some of the photographers on NT.

I'm going backpacking through Europe for 6 weeks and I'm debating whether to get the new Nikon 35mm /1.8 prime lens.

I have a D40 with an 18-200 lens already.

I plan on using the 18-200 90% of the time, especially during the daytime. I love the lens, but the only problem is it's a little slow. I was thinking having the prime lens would be nice to take pictures in dim lighting, say if we were out at a cafe at night or something.

What do you guys think I should do? get it or is it not really necessary?
post #11842 of 14562
i would get it.

& thanks ya
post #11843 of 14562
Definitely take it. I would even take it instead of the 18-200.

Definitely take both, it's a great idea. Keep the 18-200 on at most times, you never know when you'll find yourself in a situation where the zoom will be really beneficial. Especially if you're in Europe and backpacking, I'd be willing to sacrifice the improved image quality from the prime to have the flexibility of the zoom to capture things in a wide variety of situations you may find yourself in.

The 35 will be key at night, eliminating the need for you to carry a flash and saving you some weight. You'll really appreciate it's speed indoors at night, the 18-200 will be useless then.

I think you'd have a great combo for most situations. Happy travels! Post your pics on your return

post #11845 of 14562
PoeticJays - Get the 35mm but bring both... I work similar... I have a d40 and use the 18-105mm during the day and the 35mm at night. You should be set with both
