Took this image in Laos and it reminds me of a song by Tommy Steele called "The Little White Bull"

I've had my camera for some two years (HP945) and I bought it with a specific brief in mind.

It has not failed me and has provided some excellent shots!!

However, I have grown and the camera has not!

I am now suffering from a form of lust known as NAS (Nikon Acquisition Syndrome)

Being in IT I know how to analyse an investment, so after months (I kid you not!...if this was work I'd be fired for these timescales) it came down to the Nikon D200...and I was happy...for a week or two.

But what about the lenses?

So after another couple of weeks and some lurking on the Nikonian forums I've chosen the lenses.

And the cost...

Well lust does not come cheap!!!

For around $5,000 US my appetite will be quenched
  • Nikon D200 body
  • 70-200 AF-S VR f2.8
  • TC 1.7 II Teleconverter
  • 18-80 AF-S f3.5
  • MB200 battery grip
  • Misc bits & pieces

I sure hope the pictures are worth it!!

This is from my current camera and it is not too shoddy!

Tufted Duck

In terms of philosophy, never seek to reach is unattainable....and ruins the search!!
