lol! aw thanks smash.... I know my robin pic doesnt match the quality of your shot and it is but a pale imitation...

I am trying to perfect the art of the shaky distant shot, but guess I got a way to go! Do you use a special lens for that?

I like taking pics, I got a new camera recently, but I dont know how to use it yet. I hate reading the instructions - attention span of a goldfish me lol!

I thought it was called a canon D80, I only realised other day it was Nikon cos it had it on the strap all big and yellow!...

I gotta learn to pay attention lol!

nikon 55-200, think that is just like normal... but other half has got some lens that will fit it too. A macro one, and erm, one of the big ones for things far away!

I'm crap at the technical stuff cheers I just keep pressing and guessing, bit of a fluke photographer, me Surprised

the 55-200 should be good for the far away shots as the normal lens are usually 18-55mm...thats the one i have but will upgrade to a 75-300mm when i get it as a x-mas pressie Laughing Laughing think you have got a good selection of lens there for everything...not an expert as im new to this stuff but think the 200mm lens is for action shots...but if you have a more powerful lens then that would prob be the best....

sounds like you have a very good set up there and looking forward to some photo,s...
bet there will be good un,s
