Thanks Steve - yes the lens was a pretty penny but for me it was an investment in this new found hobby - I've just taken up photography in 2005. But I retire in 3 years and I needed to find a hobby I could practice at all times - even winter, which I don't really like. In summer I fish for bass - but this year I'll troll the shorelines looking for osprey and herons. Regards, Dan

Thanks very much for the advice Dan, There is a 2 mile greenery behind where i live and theres always squirrels around there. There is also a park about a 5 min walk away too. Just could never catch them with the compact. I have just recently bought the D40 so would it be possible with the kit lens 18-55mm

Red, it'll do alright I imagine - but will be a tad short on the zoom factor. Still, with a bit of cropping in PS you should be able to bring it out. I'm looking forward to your posts.If you get the chance & don't want to blow your budget, do have a look at the Nikon 70-300mm VR. It's 35mm equivalency is 105-450mm on the D40. Sells for about $670CAD. I use the D50 with 70-200VR but the lens is about $2,000CAD.

Cheers, Dan
