Re: Now there's a guy who knows what he's talking about...

GeorgeD200:

I agree, and tend to find something of interest, every time I visit Ken's site; for example, as of today and yesterday, KR seems to be concerned with "Killer Robots" and he has some interesting coverage of this on his web site,

Ken Rockwell. The guy who said:

"The Nikon D40, its kit lens, and maybe a separate flash, are all
anyone really needs for anything."

"I love either the cheap 18-55mm kit lens, or the
does-everything-well 18-200mm VR."

Yeah. That's who you're listening to. Go right ahead. Save $7500
and buy yourself a D40. That's all you really need for anything
anyway. It handles really well with the 70-200mm f2.8 VR, too. Ken
said so.

Ken also said, "Know why I want a D3X (at $5,500)? Not for making
photos, since a $250 Canon SD880 does all I need for scenic shots and
the $410 Nikon D40 does most of what I need for everything else, and
I shoot the real stuff on film. My real interest in the D3X is to see
more in the course of doing all my lens tests."

Anyone care to define measurebator?
