    Hey guys I've been noticing there has been a lot of random BS talk in the Official photography thread so I thought that I'd make a thread for all the BS talk, questions and anything else outside the realm of showing off your creations of visual art! :eek::p

    The 100-400 is nice, my grandpa has one :drool:

    But I would rather have the 400 prime, and it's cheaper now :spy:

    True that. :D


    I've never had a lens with a fixed focal length, I'd have to get used to it. :eek:

    Yeah, that is the only downside, but I am kind of used to fixed cause of my macro.

    But I am usually always at 300 so I'm not too worried ;)

    You have a point, when I had the 100-400, I almost always shot at 400. :laugh:

    those are some great set ups!

    I use a Nikon D40x with the 18-55 kit lens along with a prime Nikkor 35mm 1.8

    I'm still learning to shoot with digital as I have switched from using my Bronica SQ-A 6x6 medium format film camera. I love my Bronica and would love to find a digital back for it if they didn't cost 10-15 thousand...

    I love it too but i don't have to space to keep all the chemicals. and theres one camera shop in my town that used to send my rolls off to be printed but has since stopped and is now dedicated to the digital era
