OK! Got my Canon gear packed and ready to ship. Got a quote I can live with (KEH.)

Next up, what camera to choose? My options are, D300s (LN- $900), D700 (LN- $1699), D600 (refurb $1690).

As a reminder, here are my MF lenses:
28mm 2.8 ais
50mm 1.2 ais
85mm 2 ai
105mm 2.5 ais.

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

DDog out of those I would go for the D600. The D300s is a crop and the D700 is old technology.

Jeff that quilted sky is wonderful!
Tony I agree with James that's on terrific shot!
James very sharp on the squirrel shot.
Ronnie I love the movement in the horse shot.
Reagan the para-surfing shot is really cool. There is a TC-14a on Ebay with 8 hours to go.
Ron the Blue Jay shot is amazing!
Jose the Coati is one sharp photo!
Adam great color on the water tower.
John what a nice start with Nikki. Somehow I knew Liberty would make it
Jose the flower shot is jaw dropping

Thanks Ray and Mihai -

Liberty made it because I was working yesterday afternoon at the coffee shop down by the beach and I knew I had to bring Nikki along - she'd only been in Seattle a couple of hours at that point.

I'll try to get some city shots soon.

Ron, that 200-400 is quite a monster. Very nice capture of the horse, BTW.

Georg, I really enjoyed the creative angle and take on the snow and spotlight picture.

Jeff, quilted sky is very well done, I like the tones in the image a lot.

James, the cold tree line image is inspiring me to try something similar, just to expand my horizons.

DDog, I recommend the D600.

Samy, I expected to see some Baltimore shots from later Sunday night!

Reagan thanks for sharing the older Hoover Dam pics. Been a long time since I visited, your pics look great, esp the one of the turbines(?)

You bet, already working on some ideas - probably a night shot if conditions are right. Just need to scrape some time together to do it.

Leighton -

Is there any way on the blog to browse the images in some sort of gallery instead of having to pick through them by month, etc.? I'd like to see them all (or a large chunk of them) at a time, in chronological order preferably, so I can scan through them quickly.

John

***** BLOG UPDATE *****

John has demonstrated rather well that Nikki can be a versatile lens as evidenced by his first post.

I love the neon!

I'll look in to some sort of gallery.

Thanks Ray - I think all of them were shot wide open, except for the pano.

Maybe others have found this too, Nikki reports as being at f/2 on my camera when the aperture is set to be wide open at f/1.8. Perhaps the AI conversion is not quite exact.
