candleJack: "it's decently built" ?! That's the first time I hear such a statement about an L. Doesn't sound too good. Or maybe the perspective was skewed by the price. :)

VAT. It's what Obama is trying to do to us.

Be sure to accurately read through all the assigned characters (letters and numbers) for all the related lenses. You can get the Canon equivalent (minus IS) for $600 (check BH Photo). I paid $400 for mine about 12 years ago and it's still taking tack-sharp photos. That makes "IS" an $800 option, and I've never found it to be neccessary. My photos of night time HS football games are wonderful. And because of the lighter, non-IS weight, it swings much more fluidly. Does Nikkon have an equivalent lense? It think both companies are gouging the price for IS.

BBnose: Steve Jobs said "I will spend my last dying breath if I need to, and I will spend every penny of Apple's $40 billion in the bank, to right this wrong,"
"I'm going to destroy Android, because it's a stolen product. I'm willing to go thermonuclear war on this."
Jobs left the words in anger in his biography.

So, how can we still buy the stolen product " Android "! No! At lease I can't.

Hey man. Steve Jobs was NOT Edison, or anything even close. He didn't invent anything. Mac OS is a nice GUI, but it's not an invention. He didn't invent the cell phone, either.

What is the deal on the 'priest'? What religion is he?

Great shot, by the way. I'm really jealous. That would be a once-in-a-lifetime capture for me. I would frame it, put it on the wall, sell all my equipment, and look for new challenges.
