One again this is very helpful. I don't think I have ever been to a forum with so many knowledgeable people. I am so pleased and thankful to everyone.I do not know how to say thank you properly because I am a bit mystified by the set up at the forum. I am actually a Moderator at a Photography website so I should not be having such a difficult time, but each time I return I am not sue who I am answering.
I am now about to call and order my camera as soon as it becomes 9AM because the package was received, and I have my credit. I am very excited. Once I have the camera in my hands I can come back here and look at all the suggestions again. I did watch some videos, and although there are many features on this camera, I do think the set up looks a lot like the Nikon D200 in terms of where things are.
Okay one more question. I am not sure if I mentioned this lens above.It is another AI lens..a 135mm f. 2.8 and that one is new and not covered in foam.It does have plastic around it. and it is in a leather case. I have used it once. It has no lens cap. I try all my current lens caps and none of them fit. This was smaller I think. Not even my 60mm micro fit. Do you know where I can find lens capes for older lenses.I do not even now what size it is. I feel a bit silly now...but if you or anyone does know where I can obtain one of these please let me know? Thanks. I will ask at B and H when I call now but when I searched nothing was to be found. If I knew the size I could maybe look on ebay.
