      10-22 & 24-105 would be an excellent pairing.
      That said, when I went to Thailand last year, about 95% of my photos were with the 17-40...

      Yeah, that's on the radar too and has gone very well in the comparison reviews I've been reading of late.
      I've lashed out and bought a 24-105 from DigitalRev, so fingers crossed that goes to plan.

      It'll be a nice lens, but you'll certainly want something else to cover the wide end IMHO.

      Yep, I think you're right. We'll see how it goes.
      I can always hang on to my Sigma 18-50 f2.8 too.

      Thought I'd post this here. These seem to be multiple shots overlayed upon each other. Very cool but slightly disturbing effect:

      Liam, if you get the 24/105.
      whatever you do, don't drop it on the garage floor onthe way to the car.
      Only Auto focus dies if your lucky

      I've got one your welcome to borrow if your in a jam.

      Thanks very much for the offer.
      It's photo's of building and building projects etc so, manual focus will only slow me down and make me think more about each shot.
      I have a 35mm and 50mm prime to use and will more or less learn a lot just trying to use them. Using the 24-105 at the wide end distorts pretty bad too.
      But, if you have a tilt shift architecture lens ?

      ^ like my TS-E 24mm f/3.5L....... I wish!

      Walked around the lake today and gave the 24-105 its first proper outing. So far so good. There was only one instance I wanted a wider lens (last image below), but used the full 105 quite a few times.

      So, has anybody used/got the Leica D-LUX 4

      I’m thinking of replacing our five yr old 6MP point and shoot, I tend to hang onto things... I’m aware of the Panasonic version, but the middle class woofter in me likes the Leica, aparently the way it handles (creates) JPEG's is better.. colours from the Leica look better/brighter from what i've seen.
      Basically we tend to point and shoot – and waiting for a camera to boot up is annoying, anybody know how fast this thing is from boot? or have any experience with it at all.
      I've never owned a Canon
      ta
      <EDIT> note to self; read thread </>
      ..just how fast is the D-LUX 3 from boot ??

      Yup, got one two weeks ago. Love it.
      I've had a Canon G9 and a Ricoh GR and this is so much better, mainly for the relatively fast lens. The colour profiles (only in jpeg) mode is awesome. Dynamic B&W i a sure winner too. Get it, you won't be disappointed. 3-year waaranty too, and a RAW software that is better than the Panasonic version...

      A friend of mine got one of those Leicas recently, but I'm yet to hear back if they like it or not.
      What is it worth? It it's better than a G9, I want one!

      My Canon 70-300mm IS arrived today...

      70mm

      135mm

      300mm

      100% crops

      70mm

      135mm

      300mm
      These were some quick point and shoots in the office, so nothing too clever. Seems to work okay.

      Better than a G9.
      Needed to acclimatise to the new control interface, but the quality of pics is eye-opening.
      Get it, you're douchey enough to.

      Obviously, so are you
      What is it worth roughly?! $500? $1000? $2000?

    21. 07-09-2009 03:24 PM #296
      You should be able to get it for $1200 AUD in Sim Lim.
      Lah.
      The black one is pretty much sold out the moment they're restocked,
      so little to no chance of haggling over Australian-delivered stock.

      Ordered one of these today:

      The Canon has gotten too heavy to cart on long hikes. (yes, I'm a wimp)
      I'll be offloading some of my canon gear (10D, Grip, 20/2.8, 24-105L) to help balance the books. Reply if interested and I'll put an advert here b4 ebay.

      good timing!
      is this one of those micro 4/3rds cameras?
      i was looking at the gh-1, looks pretty good, but just wanted to get a cheapie compact for now to learn digital photography on, and am trying to decide between ricoh cx-2 and lumix tz-7.
      anybody used/own of of these?
      i need good optics, easy use, fast operation, and some zoom. video would be nice, but not essential.

      Yes, it's a micro 4/3rds. Interchangeable lens but no mirror box. Does 12mp jpeg/raw and 720p video.
      GH1 is pretty good, even better than this one, if a little expensive unless you are doing a lot of video. Not as compact though.
      I'd just bite the bullet if I were you. Any reasonable cheapie is going to cost around $500 or more, that's a big chunk of the cost of the camera you're looking at if you land up buying it anyway down the track. Of course, by then the next model will probably be out so you might pick up IQ and feature advances by waiting.

    25. 01-02-2010 12:22 AM #300
      yeah thanks, i think i'll just pick up a cheapie now to learn the ropes.
      can get either of these for under $600, and i reckon either one will do the job adequately......until i hanker for the x1....
      congrats on the gf-1 (girlfriend one?), looks great [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
