Grumpy two: 24-70mm the Holy trinity - No way. Try the Try the 28-105 macro zoom. they are no-longer made however they are still in demand. I bought mine in 2000 and is still going strong. Yes they have an idiosyncrasy with the macro however it does not worry me as it does some people - you get used to it.

Hi Brent, To use the macro you must have the lens set at over 50mm.Below that you cannot activate the macro. As I said you get used to it. I do a fair bit of macro work on native orchids with very good results. Also check out Ken Rockwell's lens reports.

On article Nikon D80 Review (5 comments in total)

I bought my D80 in June 2007 and now 10 years later it is still going strong. Rather than using the 90mm macro prime I eventually purchased the 18- 200 zoom which I found was a brilliant macro lens. Then a couple of years ago I found an old 28-105 AF 1:3.5-4.5 D macro zoom in excelent condition which I now use to photograph the native orchids here in Western Australia.

Jerry Gerber: No mention of ACD Ultimate 9? It's superior in almost every way to Corel's Paintshop Pro and gives Photoshop a run for its money. Very surprised this incredibly fast, stable and feature-packed editor is not in this list.

And no, I don't work for or have any association with ACD, just a satisfied user..

Agree

On article Leica Announces V-Lux 3 superzoom (125 comments in total)

It is about time some of you people did some homework instead of guessing and carrying on like 10 year old kids.
Leica designed the v-lux 3 and the pan 150 and most of the other Panasonic cameras. Panasonic produce various cameras for Leica and their cameras under various liscences from Leica. At least they are made in Japan and not some sub-world country. Simply put, Not all Leica parts are the same as Panasonic even tho some are identical. However it is the final tweeking that makes the difference. The same goes with Sony, Cannon, Nikon Sony etc.
You can buy genuine Leica cameras and lenses made in Germany. The ones made by Panasonic on behalf of Leica are for the mid and lower end of the market.
