I think that's the one I'll get. There's the new SB600 but it's not as powerful.

I bougt the Nikon DX 10.5 mm Fisheye recently and after using it, I don't know why I bought it. :lol: I then bought the Nikon DX 12-24mm Zoom and this one makes more sense. Great for indoors. The SB800 would be great for this lens.

I have the Nikon DX 18-70mm Zoom that came with the D70. That one is the most useful. And with the the falsh cards, I can just snap at my heart's content. I love this new experience! Waiting for Nikon DX 70-200mm to complete my range.

so you didn't liked the fisheye?
you preffer the 12-24?
i'm looking to add a wide-angle lens to my setup and was thinking for a fisheye
it would be very usefull for me in La Source at Spa Francorchamps or the exit of the Mercedes-Arena at Nurburgring and also at Concours

can you post some comparisation shots?

OK, will do when I get back to KL. I forgot to bring the Nikon download software to Melbourne, so I can't download the pictures. Silly me.

yes you can, go buy an external USB card reader, that's like 20-30 € and you can plug that into any pc that has USB and no software is required then
and all you have to do is copy the pics to a folder yourself

Yup:
1 place - car nr. 2 - Ferrari 550M
2 place - car nr. 11 - Ferrari 575M
3 place - car nr. 1 - Ferrari 550M
4 place - car nr. 17 - Ferrari 575M
5 place - car nr. 32 - Chrysler Viper
6 place - car nr. 13 - Ferrari 575M
7 place - car nr. 18 - Ferrari 575M

I was there during the race, but the commentary was in French and I don't speak french. So, untill this morning (I came back from Belgium last night) I didn't knew wich car had won :/

It's an instant classic. It's an iron fist in a velvet glove. It's a Ferrari.
