Oh yeah, rebuilding our gallery…

From scratch, that’s just what I wanted to do today.  But it’s OK, it needed it.  Lots of cobwebs and photos were in the wrong place anyway.

It’s all good.
We now have a little WordPress/Gallery Integration going on. Because this server is a bit dated (read Ssssllllooowww), I’m not pulling a random imaged everytime. It’s just a daily image. (It generates the thumbnail on the fly, which given that it’s running Winblows and none of this stuff is optimized for that it’s doing OK I suppose.


Lens Shopping

Photography & Lenses.

With the kids being active in sports again, and with my wife’s prodding I’m starting to take an interest in photography again. I had a reasonable collection of 35mm Minolta based camera stuff that simply has no value now that the world has gone digital.

Now that I’ve made the switch I’m looking at the following lenses. If you have experience with either and or a good outlet to get any of these at a really good price let me know.

70-200mm f/2.8G ED-IF AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor

The grand dady, with vibration reduction. Retails for about $1500 (ouch), supposed to buy you up to 3 shutter speeds.

80-200mm f/2.8D ED AF Zoom-Nikkor

The same thing withought vibration reduction. Retails for about $950.

Sigma APO 70-200mm F 2.8 EX DG/HSM

A non Nikon lens, Retails for $750-$800.

If you came here looking for photos from the CGA Mock Meet or the Universal Galaxy meet in Columbus you’re almost at the right place.

You need to click the link on the right under pages labled gallery.dishers.com or I guess you could click here.

Note: This does not replace the normal dishers gallery for the Disher’s personal photos.
