    decided fuck it...the 28-70 is a damned sweet lens and will work just fine...I'll get the 70-200 eventually:hs:

    almost pulled the trigger on the Tamron version couple weeks ago in Dallas for like half the price:o. But it doesn't have VR:o

    Well, 1/2 the puzzle is solved. Pay off this one and save up for the other!

    I HAVE to since my boss said "we gotta get you shooting soon". I've been the lighting assistant for like 3 months now but he knows I came in to shoot, not to be an assistant from the get-go. Shelling out $1800 is a bitch though, specially since I just dropped 3K on the D700 a few months back. Whatever, I guess its gotta be done...Im thinking by next month.

    You know thats exactly how I felt with the D700. I was like "FUCK I now have a CC bill" And as soon as it came in I forgot all about it. The camera can allow me to do jobs that the D70s would have never been able to handle. Sure I could've lit the shit out of a room but it's so much easier just bumping the ISO to 3200 and shoot away. Maybe I'll run to BH and give them my soul next week.

    Thanks :bigthumb:

    Do they make the 70-200 in white still. I know it's making it look like Canon but I like it better.

    I think that's only a european market thing, if they even make it anymore. Its like a pink unicorn, its more rare than rare. Although, has browns has one... maybe we could jump him and snag it from him. :run:
