About me:

My wife has a D7000 with the 18-200 VR. I bought my (adult) daughter a D60
with the 18-55 VR and 55-200 VR, and my (adult) son has my old D70, 18-70,
a Sigma 10-20, and my old Sigma 70-300 APO.

Film - Used to shoot with Minolta SRT102 with three prime lenses and a
teleconverter (and had a garbage K-Mart telephoto zoom). 20 year old Pentax
P&S when weight was a concern.

Computer Gear -- All Apple: iMacs, MacBooks, Minis (including one server)
