Hi Randy:

Thanks for your response. I agree with you about the D5000 and I’m very happy with it and the DX 35mm f/1.8. However, I do have the D700 which made the whole thing that much easier. Without the latter, I would have sold the D300.

Today, I took the D5000 and the AF-S DX 35mm f/1.8 for a test drive to the Redondo Beach Pier, about 15 min from my home. When I left the house, it was sunny; the beach area was yucky – low clouds. How bad was it? Exactly like the photo bellow – the picture does not lie:

They did have an antique car show, on the pier, with over 100 old cars. Therefore, I decided to take photos of the cars, instead. However, I took them knowing that they were also going to be yucky, just like the weather – nothing better to do. The problem is that they all came out just like the ones bellow – 190 of them:

Both pictures have no post-processing. I really do not know what to do since I’m not going to discard them and selecting them is going to be very tedious. What? Keep 190 photos of old cars?

One thing is for certain, today I’m registering the D5000 and AF-S DX 50mm f/1.8.

Best Regards,


PS: Here are my photos of the Antique Auto Show -
