Huga D700 :eek: Mega excitement!!

I am looking for somewhere to buy a 30mm for my Samsung, I checked out camera pro but they don't have any Sammy stuff. :(

I had a look at your links Helen and B&H have them but same price as everywhere else I looked. Bumma was hoping for a bargain! :laugh:

DWI are grey, Camera Pro are not.


Can you help educate me? What is a 'grey import'?



http://en.wikipedia....iki/Grey_market - this explains grey market, the warranty may be invalid with the compony if you purchase grey market eg Canon so you would need to purchase warranty on top of the camera.


Another 2 shops I like
http://www.digitalca...rehouse.com.au/ (not grey market)
and in USA http://www.bhphotovideo.com/ - great with the exchange rate now


THank you! informative.

I tried to take basketball photos last night in a gym that isn't the best. Used my Canon EOS 400D with the 18-200mm IS lens (iso 1600). Not up for the job really. I put the 1.8 50mm on for a few shots, but whilst the exposure was better, it was hard to get a good shot with the depth of field. You had to be spot on. Really do need to upgrade. Am thinking the 7D with the 2.8 70-200mm sigma lens (can't really afford the canon one).

All interesting. No money of course, will have to save hard.

If it was me and I was getting a new camera and lens to do low light work (indoors at basketball) I would be seriously considering Nikon

I finally have my Nikon D7000 and so far just love it :D . I'm looking forward to having a proper play with it this weekend. And I have a new respect for macro photographers... I'm finding using the new macro lens a challenge :o

Can I ask why that is Helen? Especially since I'm looking to upgrade soon and the only Canon stuff I have that I'd use on a new camera is my 50mm 1.8 and 580EXII Speedlite.

I went with the D7000 because it's a Nikon (so all my gear from my D80 will fit) and it's supposed to be very good for low light sports photography :) . That being said, I'm in no way a camera expert :laugh:

Nikon have a reputation for better low light results, less noise at high ISOs (or so I have been told). Worth checking out dpreview a bit if you want to have a look at tests.
