    Hey which teleconverter are you using? I see there is a TC-20E and a TC-20E II for a $150 more. Any idea what the diference is? They say they both work with the 70-200.
    Well??? Did you get it yet??? Where are the pics, man!

    The gallery is a open source application that you upload to your hosting server, which is here. The really nice thing about it is that really it does all the work, so I basically just drag and drop a bunch of pics, add captions, and say go, and it does everything else. Because it is open source, there are a bunch of different skins and whatnot for it, and it is very customizable, but it can be a little confusing to set up. The thing I like about it over Photoshop created web galleries (I haven't used Lightroom's yet) is that if I want to add or delete pictures, I don't have to rebuild the whole page, I just add or delete and the gallery software rebuilds stuff as needed. I really really like it.

    I did get it and I was pretty excited. I had been on the B&H website many times and it was always listed as out of stock. Then one day there it was. "In stock" for about a day. So I ordered and got it. As soon as I got it I also got a big project at work so I have had no time to put it to the test yet. Very frustrating! Anyway right now I am just happy to have it in my hands. A very nice lens. Great workmanship. As soon as I get some pics I will post something.

    Love the picture of the ship BTW.

    Couple of B&Ws I took in Monterey last week that I'm kinda proud of.






    A boatload more pics of the trip (B&W and otherwise) are up on my flickr page.

    Sam: I like the gallery software a lot. I've got to get some website stuff ironed out, then I'll probably create a gallery page of my own that looks a little more "professional" than flickr.

    Hey, that's my place

    Wow, really nice shots and nice conversions. I like `em a lot. Makes me want to get out and take more pics, but I have been so couped up with work.

    The Gallery is really nice, but it does take a good chunk of time to get it all installed and configured the first time, but once it is up, and set up the way you want it, I have found it to be super easy.

    I've been using my Canon D10 for a few years and I've decided to upgrade. Not only have I decided to upgrade, I am changing makes. I'm switching to a Nikon D300.
    I shot with my buddy's D200 quite a bit to know that's the direction I wanted to go. With the D300 due in November, I decided to wait. If I had the disposable income, I'd get a D3. But that's a lot of extra money I can spend on some new glass instead.

    I've been rummaging through the thread and you guys have some really nice shots. I look forward to sharing with y'all.

    Heck, maybe I'll try and work my silly press connections a bit and see if we can get down to ice level during a game at Staples. No promises, but I'll try.

    You, sir, would become a true hero to this amateur photographer were you able to do this (or hell, get me down into the photog's box at a Dodger game).

    But doesn't Getty Images have all the NHL stuff sewn up tighter than a gnat's ass?

    I've decided that I'll be upgrading to a D300 some time early next year. I think I'm going to try and save enough to buy it so that I don't have to sell the D200. That way I can be all cool and pro-like with a backup camera.

    As far as Getty Images go, I'm not sure. But my press creds would come via NBC, so that my not be an issue. Again, I haven't looked into it.

    When the 08' season starts, I'll see what I can do at the Ravine.

    Sadly (for my pocketbook), I don't believe that I will be able to avoid the temptation of the D300. It'll just be a matter of when.
    For the $1619 they're selling it for now?
