Eric, how much money did you invest in the entire equipment (body, lenses, flash? etc)?

Got the kit during the holidays when Nikon had their holiday special, which brought the camera kit to the $1k mark (this got me to bite ). Add a memory card to this (I picked up a Sandisk Ultra II 512 card for another $50), and it came out to $1,100 shipped. Bought a Lowepro min trekker aw to haul it all in, which was another $90, so grand total would be nearly $1,200 to get started. Any other lens that you pick up down the line would be up to you. I've listed the other lens below.

Played around w/the kit for awhile and read about the sharp 50mm f/1.8 lens and picked it up for $100 (took that 3rd picture, who is my little cousin ). It's also a great lens for fish photography (altum picture in the other post), due to the huge amount of light it lets in (low f number).

I also enjoy taking pictures of birds and other animals, which are easily spooked. So, I picked up the 70-210 f/4-5.6 for $140 and have been using it to snap pictures of birds. Here's a sample picture from the lens taken this afternoon at Vasona Park.


I'm also interested in macro photography, so I picked up a Micro 55mm f/3.5 for $90 (old lens, which requires full manual controls). Here's a couple of pictures earlier today, while I was in the gardens of the SCU campus.

Isn't that just an awsome aqua scape?? Hairgrass on each side of a trail leadin to the back of the tank. Course my 55G is a little thin. Maybe some watersprite, or hygro on the outskirts a that...I have a low light tank so I have to be conservative!!

Awsome pics Eric!!

Thanks for the comments.

I was using that second picture for awhile as my background. It'll be interesting to see if you're able to have an aquascape which mimics it.

Very nice photos Eric, particularly the macros. Very very clean.

Nice...

I do a lot of underwater photography and am currently thinking of switching from film to a D70. Seems to be a very nice piece of equipment.
