Default Nikon Lenses

I just thought I'd point out, for those who might find the information useful, that there is a dissertation on lenses here:

Default Very helpful information

Being new to photography, I've found no shortage of numerical data and comparisons between various lenses on the net. While I can certainly appreciate technical specs, your reviews of personal experiences with these lenses, and their preferred uses in different situations, will certainly help me make a better informed decision on my first few lense purchases!

Thanks,
Mark

I found it very difficult to come up with much other than arbitrary ratings or MTF information when I was first starting out, so I decided to write this when I had enough information to do so. I'm pleased that it was useful to you, Mark.

Mr Dinh

I have some comments to make after reviewing several of your photo, animals and landscape. Most of them, the subjects seem to be placed in the center , and for that you may not follow the rule of third, apply for both horizontal and vertical, if you could frame and put your subject on 1/3 to the left or 1/3 to the right or move the subject up and down 1/3 of the frame, the pictures would look a whole lot better, have more depth and more meaningful. The picture if the Seattle with the space needle would be a great shot if the tower is places to 1/3 on the left. I don't mean to get you upset or anything, you were asking for comments and I just give you some of my opinions. There are several good photography books on animals and lanscape or nature subject with the discussion of the rule of third that you may consider to review and I love to icuss with you more about this in the future.
