I HOPE your 10-24 takes great pictures! $800-$1,400 !! Saw Sigma and Tokina for less, but ... are they less?
Not even thinking about post right now.
The "For Dummies" book has a short but to the point discussion of the aperture/iso/speed triangle, as well as a discussion of field of focus. Read it 3 times. Going to photocopy it, and keep re-reading it.
Two chapters from now are about post, and post software. I have Photoshop 5.0, got in a class in 1998. Guess I should upgrade, huh? www.pricewatch.com. A real life saver.
Can you do post on JPEG? Which thread, in your opinion, has the BEST discussion of lenses?
