    er... previously 1VHS.
    i seldom do sports photography.
    canon is kind of upsetting me. focusing problems, new models coming up like no tomorrow. what if i bought 50D couple months ago and now 7D?
    i am more slow down in photography now. kind of busy and tired.

    sorry, I misremebered you were the one who is a professional sport photographer using 1DMKIII that I saw in another thread, but I couldn't find it now.
    Totally agreed with the Canon focusing problem, it seems to be better with lastest model, i.e. 5DMKII is much better than 30D.

    you may consider me as the pro.

    spending too much previously, now just get what i want is enough.
    not going to spend USD5-7k and not earning back with those equipment.
    decent good capable camera + few lenses are more than enough for enthusiast.

    body will be hard to sell or sell at good price.
    lenses and speedlite may fetch something. depending on type and condition.
    or... just stay with canon dslr.

    Default ^^New or used??..^^

    ..if either, you are also getting ripped off.
    I can get that kit for less than $1300 (before shipping to your country).

    In fact, for the price you mentioned ($1515), i can get an extra lens for less price (before shipping to your country).

    if your really serious about it you wont bother to get the 55-200mm VR its way to slow at f/4-5.6 save up for a f/2.8 it will be worth it

    yes, sigma is faster, much faster. but, it is not as sharp as tamron. from 135 till 200mm, it performs poorly. after think for a while, getting a 200mm f/2.8 and not performing, kind of bad idea. furthermore what if added with 1.4 or 1.7X teleconverter?
    is up to individual, either pick good performer or good AF. want both world plus VR, get the Nikkor AF-S 70-200mm f/2.8 at 2X ++ price.

    completely agree! haha i know the sigma works good with its own sigma TC but cant comment on tamron TC and nikkor TC. it all depends if you want more IQ or fast AF.

    nikon's new 70-200 VR2 is coming out this month so you might be able to get a cheaper 70-200 VR1 soon.

    I'm in a similar situation as well and I'm not too sure what I should be doing:
    Currently: D90, 18-105, 50.8, SB600

    What I was thinking was tio get rid of the the kit lens and get am A16 (B005 IMO is not worth the extra money) and buy a good telephoto.

    I got myself the D90+18-105 lens (Complete set at slightly more than US$1k).

    Considering to buy 50mm lens after some recommendation from my friend.

    also recommend the 35/1.8. i find myself using the 35mm focal length much more than 50mm. i eventually sold the 50mm and the 35mm is my most used lens.

    you have 18-105. now, go out and shoot. set it at 35mm and then set to 50mm. then you will know which focal length is the most useful to you.

    The 50mm lens is quite cheap (around US$100) here. That is one primary reason I am considering it also as my friend uses it often to take close-up pics.
