  4. Sold my 400mm f/2.8

    Boo, hiss... can't believe she's finally gone. I just wasn't using the 400mm to warrant keeping it around so she's off to a photog in Indiana that does a lot of football and soccer.

  10. FX lens on DX body?

    Ok, dumb question. I am considering buying a 28-105 IF F3.5/4.5lens. Guy who owns it says it is a great FX lens. He only shoots FX bodies. Question is, will this lens work on a DX body? I assume it will only it would be more like a 42-150 lens rather than a 28-105? I belive this is an older lens...

    Three months ago I was thinking about getting a Canon 50D body because I wanted to try low light concert photog. I asked for opinions on another forum.
