    Resurrected. Any way we can merge this with the latest Canon DSLR thread (http://www.letsgokings.com/bbs/showthread.php?t=52111) and sticky it?

    EDIT: Awesome. Thanks, CD!

    Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Bullets are cheap. Life is priceless.

    Here are some online sources for lens rental. Most of the big stuff is always out of stock, but you can sign up for in-stock notification. Try before you buy!!

    Be careful with the rental lenses. You may not get what you expect!

    Think "rental skates at the ice rink".

    FBJ, Do you use a Speedlight? I think I'm going to pick up a SB-800AF. The flash that I bought in 1993 for my 5005 just craped out on me.

    I cant belive how much a frigg'n flash goes for nowadays.

    I've got the SB-800 and it's a great flash.

    So I rented the big-bad mama-jama Nikon 80-400 VR from ziplens.com for my trip to Vero Beach this week. This lens is SOOO ****ING BADASS! The only downside to it is that it weighs about five pounds. It's definitely a monopod-required deal. Or just make sure your left arm is buffed up before you grab one.

    I also made the mistake (?) of heading into my local Hooper Camera this morning to buy a new bag and some cleaning stuff. While I was there, I grabbed a Nikon D200 body and attached it to that lens. They let me step outside to take some pics with it and I was so impressed with the ability of that camera that I bought it. It is SOOOOO MUCH FASTER than my D100!!! I'm able to take continuous shots without running out of memory buffer as fast as FIVE FRAMES PER SECOND!!!

    Of course, I must now sell my D100. Any takers?

    Why'd you go and do that? You still have to send the lens back.

    Here are some pics I took this morning of some fauna around the house.
    All shots are @400mm and in AF w/M Priorty. Anyone who shoots birds knows its almost impossible to go 100% manual. These things move quickly. Enjoy

    Pileated Woodpecker (pain in the ass to shoot)
