About me:

Have been using a Minolta DiMage7 for 2.5 years.
Purchased Fuji S3 in late May, 2005
AF & AF-D Lenses from Nikon: 20mm, 24mm, 28mm, 35mm, 50mm, 60mm, 500mm f8 mirror w/ Nikkor TC14b, 18-70mm DX, 35-135mm, 70-200mm f2.8 VR G and one Tamron 200-400mm. A Sigma 10mm-20mm F4-5.6 EX has been added for really WA photos. The newest additons are the Nikkor 16mm-85mm DX f3.5-f5.6 G and a TC1.7 EII teleconvertor for use on the 70mm-200mm f2.8 zoom. Other non-autofocus Nikon lenses are left over from the days of the FG, F2As and F4 bodies.

A Nikon D40x was added in 09/07 to back up the S3 as well as provide a nice light platform with the NikKor 18mm-70mm kit lens as a travel package when the full compliment of equipment is just too much to carry.

The year 2009 saw the addition of a used Fuji S5 when the back buttons on the S3 body became unreliable. Once the S5 was sharing the camera bag with the S3 the older body sort of straightened itself out. I picked up a Sigma 50mm-150mm f2.8 mod II and matching Sigma 1.4 TC which works well with all 3 digital bodies.

I do some post processing with Fuji's Hyper Utility software but more and more it is all done with Adobe's Photoshop CS3.
