if you buy a digital camera, one thing to remember is buy from a company that makes lenses. canon, nikon, pentax etc. anybody can make the electronics but the lenses are the hard part.

hey tim, canon has lenses for their digitals, and I think your camera has detactable lens. pretty soon you won't carry that old fashioned 35 mil. anymore.

Yama, first off !! The secret to riding in colder weather is just being prepared for it. I think I actually love it when it's cool out like this time of year, probably because I can wear my full gear and not be hot. I'm one of the whiners in the middle of summer when it's 1000, I mean 100 degrees out for six months straight. When I first moved out here, I rode year round for several years as didn't own a car. After a while, you get the good gear, warm gloves, electric vest, knecker-chief (sp?) and so on.

Plus everything is a brilliant green and the repetitive rain storms clear out all the haze. Yesterday, the visibility was say 50, 60, 70 miles. You could see clear across to Mt Diablo all day. Less traffic, and no lumbering tourists/campers/etc. Had the road all to myself practically the entire day!

Everyone keeps telling me that!

Ironically, almost all the photography for the pashnit.com site is done with a manual Minolta XG-M with a 28-105mm zoom lens which was given to me couple years back. As for the lenses for this new digital, Yep, another reason to get this camera. Sort of in-between a point & shoot, but not quite the full fledge SLR digital. The lenses actually screw onto the existing one with an adaptor.

I do a lot of panoramics (you may have noticed) so this wide angle lens I might get. It's $200 at best buy, but possibly cheaper via the mail-order houses. The cheapo lens (Digital Optics) is only $99 but hesitant to buy the cheap lens.

More Hey, I'm originally from Wisconsin so I know exactly what you're talking about. But then again, back there we had go-karts, snowmobiles, cross-country skis, horses, tractors, etc !!

Yours Truly awhile back


And me on the 'pull-behind-cart' I welded up with our Honda Oddesey that we put a 440cc snowmobile motor on.

Might be worth taking a look at the Canon Digital Rebel(300D) since it is a full SLR and only $900. Also comes with a 24-88mm(around there) lense to boot.
