    Re: Calling All Nikonians...

    Heh heh heh...

    I, too have a "Nikonito!" It's my little pocket-sized 885 Coolpix

    I'm 3 Nikons and counting: said 885, FM2n (formerly Mig's) and my tried and tru 8008s. I'm still waiting for an F3 steal on Ebay. Then I might let go of the FM2 just to keep the weight down

    Re: Calling All Nikonians...

    I'm still recovering from the winter olympics when my son and I went up. How do you guys put up with the cold. We complain when it gets down to 65 in our neck of the woods. I've got a pair of FM10's, and N90S and the new D70. The D70 has been getting a pretty good workout lately.

    Re: Calling All Nikonians...

    Wow you just made my Christmas, now if I could just get the lottery on the right page. I might have to add Nikon Samurai #8 to one of my school shirts, Young Shooter and DeckCadet would love that.

    Sounds good to me!

    We'll need a WIDE angle lens to get all those great photographers with great taste in the frame!

    With the holidays here, you'll need a fisheye just to get me in. I'll help host in Miami or the keys if you all feel like coming down.

    Sounds good to me too!

    Thanks for answering our fellow Nikon Samurai's. I've been out of touch for several days, and it's good seeing a fellow Samurai granting entrance into our ranks.

    BTW, I also have two Nikon's. My N80 and a Coolpix 5700. Hope to make that three one day soon. You can never have too many Nikon's! ;-)

    Rick

    And I'm trying to catch up to you!

    Our office has a Coolpix 800. The Coolpix 3500 was a quantum jump in image quality from that. The 5700 is on an entirely different level.

    I'd love to have a FM or an FE for my night/astrophotography work. One day.

    The 8008s is a remarkable camera. It was ahead of it's time, and ironically, pro SLR's today are being "downsized" more in line with what the 8008 is. Personally, I like the heft and feel of the F5! ;-)

    Hehehe!

    That's the whole point!

    I was asked if I was a pro at my first wedding. I'd had my N80 for three whole months. But then again, I was shooting all Nikon that day. N80, Nikkor 50mm f1.4, and SB-28 speedlight.

    The last example was this month. I was taking photo's at the Water Park in Charleston, and a lady came up to me and said "Excuse me. You're obviously a professional..." It might have been the N80 with the 70-300 attached. It might have been the Bogen tripod. But Dawn thinks it was the hat that made her so sure. ;-)

    BTW, what do you shoot?

    Dude, I didn't realize you shot Nikon!

    You've probably mentioned it before, but I'm old and suffer from CRS. (Can't Remember Stuff - that's the family sanitized version)
