    I received my $46 for Ritz and its ready to get spent. I don't mind coughing up a few more bucks but don't want it to be more than $90. I have the d70 w/ kit lens and a 70-300. Both have uv filters and the kit has a circ. polarizer. What would you recommend?

    I have a high speed 512mb and i've yet to fill it up. These are some of my ideas:

    --128 or 256mb card
    --50mm f1.8
    --filters (???, give suggestions)

    I was thinking about a 2nd battery but since I didn't have to recharge it for 3 weeks after taking nearly 500 photos, I felt the battery life was decent for me. Im going to check out the price of the 50mm.

    Recommend a good set of filters, they can greatly help outdoor shots.

    It was $109...I think this will be my next purchase unless I can be convinced to get something else.

    i have a 50mm 1.8 (canon) and i really like shooting with it....sooo much faster than my zooms and its cool to have to frame your shot with your feet
