I've just bought a digital back for the Nikon gear. I have a film back that I haven't used for ages and a bunch of lenses and a macroflash all sitting in the cupboard, doing nothing. What a waste. I decided to take the plunge. So now I've joined Digital SLR World (ie the 21st century).

In a moment of financial insanity, I also bought a new long lens. It's a Nikon 80 – 400 mm VR (vibration reduction) and it is about the size and weight of a small wombat. Because it's so bulky, I'm going to feel a bit self-conscious lugging it around. Perhaps I need a retinue of porters?

When I get over my shyness, I'll post some pics of and from it.

It was a good decisionjj. Now I'm trying not to think of the mortgage payments ...

BTW, Chuckie isn't from the Waite but is a local botanist. (I don't think he went back to the post after you asked your question.)

Welcome to digital SLR photography. You won't regret it.

I couldn't believe it at The Waite when daughter was working there ... stacks of $$$ spent on the you-beaut-new-building ... plant research for goodness sake ... including on weeds ... and the whole garden (well, lots of it) was planted with weeds.
