    Hello all....

    My first post on this forum will be to introduce myself.
    My name is Michel and I'm from The Netherlands when I was six I first met with the camera of my dad.
    Only at that moment I used it as a toy not as an intstrument like I do nowadays.
    I was born and raised in Assen where I spent 26 six years of my life before I moved over to Heerenveen to live together with my girlfriend.
    On my 18th I bought myself my first SLR and after 2 years of use it was stolen during a burglary.
    I spend 2 years without a camera and on my 23rd I got my first Nikon camera ( F65 ) which I used during another 2 years before I quitted photography due to some personal issues.
    Then I moved to Heerenveen and after a year and a hard year of work I spent some money on my first digital camera ( D80 ) in the main time I had some good contact with professional photographers.
    But after a year with my D80 I needed something quicker and more compatible on high iso values.
    So I got myself a D300 and an old 300mm F2.8 and 80-200mm F2.8 after almost 2 years it was time to move to a level of the big boys.
    Since a week I'm a proud owner of 2 D300 bodies a nikkor 17-55mm af-s f2.8, nikkor 70-200mm af-s vr f2.8 and a 400mm af-s f2.8 lens.

    Re: Hello all....

    Welcome to the site from a fellow Nikon owner. I have been shooting Nikon cameras since 1970. I think you will find this to be one of the friendliest and knowledgeable sites on the Internet. Hope you stick around, post some pictures, and be an active member of the forums. Welcome aboard and look forward to seeing some of your pictures, Jeff
