I was originally going to get the 300D but decided I wanted a little more camera, hence the 10D or D100. The 10D isn't even a year old yet, but the D100 is almost 2 years old so could be up for a...

FINAL DECISION--I'm going to wait for a few months and see if Nikon comes out with a new model. If lacrosse season comes around and there's nothing new, I'm buying the D100 with a Nikon 28-200mm...

Oops, the Tamron 28-300mm goes to f/6.3 at full telephoto NOT f/5.6. So would I be better off with the Nikon 28-200mm f/3.5-5.6?

This is from a Nikon post I just made, but the questions are the same if I get the 10D--

Regarding a lens for my 10D or D100, how about the Tamron 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6? It has the same f-stop as the...

OK boys, you totally lost me on this lens/camera discussion. I'd like to re-focus you (no pun intended) on my December 10 post. I've been to the photo store and like the feel of the Nikon D100 much...

With all of the above great input I'm leaning towards the 10D and a Sigma 70-200mm f2.8 APO lens. I have a couple of more questions:

1. For the heck of it I've been looking at the Nikon D100. ...

I don't plan on using a tripod, and I was hoping to spend less than $500 for the lens. I thought that compensation for a slower lens would be the fact that I can push the 10D to ISO 400 (or higher?)...

That sounds like just what I'm looking for. I'll assume the the Signa lenses work just as well with the 10D as Canon lenses? What about the Canon 75-300 IS USM?

By the way, thanks NFL, for...

Prime lens vs telephoto

That's an interesting idea that I hadn't thought of. The prime lens will be faster but I'm concerned that I'll lose some flexibility w/o the zoom...particularly at 320mm (200mm times 1.6).

Dennis and Russel thanks for your input.

I'm trying to stay away from the big, heavy telephoto lenses, and I'm NOT spending $1,900 for a lens! I'm looking for more than my 7i's 200mm top end. A...
