    Re: Money going for a new camera, not a watch

    Lol..
    I'm in a similar situation...
    I just sold one of my most favourite watches today (at least I got pretty much what I had in mind as a bottom line) in order to supplement my new camera purchase...

    Also the D90 as well as the 18-200mm VR lens..

    Cant wait for it to arrive...pretty excited! My first DSLR!

    What's the movie mode like? I carry around a Canon TX1 with my gear to shoot video when I want. This combination intrigues me unless it impacts the cameras main purpose in any way.

    I set the WB (white balance) off the ice, works for me. It was not my kid in the picture but yes, they are midget aged players.

    Good choice. I've heard nothing but good things about the D90. That lens might be the only one you'll ever need btw...

    The 50mm F1.8AF is a no-brainer at about $120.00. I have the 60mm F2.8AF lens, a lower cost choice over the 105mm. I would love the 200mm f2.0 VR lens, but I need to but food and gas too. Another below with the 70-200VR lens.

    You'll never regret having a good camera to capture your kids growing up. I've always been a pretty serious travel and landscape photographer, but once my kids got involved in sports I sort of went crazy. For sports I'm using a Canon 1D Mk IIN, and have aquired quite a few fast L series lenses. The lens I use the most cost well over 4k, but I don't regret the purchase a bit. Good lenses tend to hold their value pretty well, even better than most watches. Enjoy yourself and your kids.

    Your pics with the 70-200 are great. I use a 70-200 2.8 a lot. That and the 300 2.8 see the most use. For outdoor daytime sports a 1.4TC on a 70-200 2.8 still yields pretty good results as well.
