    Few questions.

    What are the good Nikon resources out there? As ghey as it is, POTN does have some useful information on it. Is there anything like that? Ive heard of NikonCafe and Nikonians but know nothing about them.

    Is there any one place that reviews lenses accurately? Im trying to get a few primes right now like a 50 and 85 and I think Id be fine with a 50/1.4D but wanted to see about the AF-s version. Theres some reviews out there that Ive read but was just curious if there was any one place you all looked more than others.

    I guess thats all for now :wavey:

    Ahhhhh FM. I always forget about their reviews. Thanks

    Haha thats exactly what I did. I sold everything to pay off some debt, continued to pay off some debt, and now were taking a 3 week trip to Italy. I cant travel somewhere without a camera :cool:

    Its expensive as hell to rent a nice body for 3 weeks. Might as well buy what I like and be happy (which I did)

    I've always used OTAP for opinions on lenses. Often reviews on B&H and shit conflict. I don't trust most review places.

    nikonians was nice when it was free, it was worth the awful browsing experience.

    now that you have to pay, it's out of my bookmarks

    The thing I really wish Canon had - was Nikon build quality and ergonomics.
