Oh Ranier! Those brought tears to my eyes! I am so completely happy for my dad!

Thanks so much for posting them!

p.s. JimC, I feel a Vivitar in your future, soon as they replace the one I bought online. You called this one's potential early on with Ranier's posts.

I think you're seeing Rainer's photography skills shine through, too. ;-)

For example, many people couldn't take sharp photos using a 1/15 second shutter speed at 210mm (equivalent to 315mm with a 35mm camera), anti-shake or not, not to mention the nice exposure and composition.

You'd normally want shutter speeds of around 1/300 second or faster (20 times as fast as rduve was shooting at for the low light shots). lol Of course, the anti-shake helped, but that's still more than 3 stops difference.

Maybe you should get a 7D while Wal-Mart still has 'em, too.

Look what it would cost you to get a zoom like that for your Nikon.

Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8 VR lens....................... approx. $1,600 (you supply the camera)

Konica Minolta 7D with Vivitar 70-210mm f/4..approx.. $800.00

OK, so you'd gain a stop on the long end with the Nikkor (but, they don't make an f/4 zoom in that focal range with Vibration Reduction). :-)

With anti-shake, all of your lensea are stabilized.

A steady hand sure helps. This series I took this afternoon, equipped only with my KM5D Tamron 28-300, while my 3-year-old got his haircut. All handheld, no flash. You can tell by his facial expression which haircut he liked better.

High ISO's are amazing on this camera, coming from a Panasonic FZ30...

Yeah, Tanner's haircut came out a little shorter than we wanted it. But it's good like that for a hot summer. We are off to Germany this week and it's warm and humid there right now.
