If you watch on ebay 135mm f/2.8 MF lenses often go prety cheaply. You might be able to pick one of those up for not much more than the converter.

Bring it on, Dawg!!! :G

Actually, you're not kidding about low noise at ISO 800! I took a pic with the 50mm in low light (ceiling lamp) of a baseball I have on my top shelf. I took it at ISO1600 and the noise was actually negligible compared to other cameras I've tried. I used Noise Ninja to a very small extent and just sharpened in Photoshop. Tomorrow, I'm going to try the kit lens more at a friend's gig upstate.

Looking forward to some of those photos...Be sure to take the 50mm as well in case the lighting is too dim! Never hurts to be prepared!
