as for the 70-200 f/2.8 IS vs f/4 IS, i say get the f/4 if you want it as a walk around and for general photography, and the 2.8 for doing work. the 2.8 is big and not really a pleasure to carry, and it really makes you stick out (i prefer not to when im walking about). both are incredible lenses.

does any one have a nikon 35-70 2.8 that they use for general use. I'm not sure if 35 is wide enough. i have a 12-24, but rather not keep switching lenses just for the 24.

no, but I have the Tamron 28-75 2.8 macro and love it. I can use it for portraits, semi macro stuff, food, buildings etc..

Nice, aj_del. I've been trying to shoot jellyfish on a visit to a sea aquarium a few months ago, but couldn't get enough light to get it sharp; the whole thing seems to move all the time. What lens and settings did you use?

Ah, 3200 ISO. I have should have pushed the ISO more in my attempts, though 1/30 at 105 mm on a "moving target" is still not much. Good shot. Thanks.

EMY it makes a slight difference, nothing substantial. However, the price between the two is a different story...

Jellyfish picture is great!

Very nice, Trini. Wish they were a bit bigger. What do I see in the first two pictures?

Hey C - clicking on the pics should cue up a larger version of the images.

The top 2 pics are shots of the Wai'ale'ale Crater in Kauai. The majority of those pics were taken from an open-door helicopter.

^ Another nice one, aj_del. Macro lens? What diaphragm value did you use (and ISO + shutter time)?
