Hello,

Thank you for all those nice comments:

CKS-445 was a diversion from Frankfurt and went technical.
Then the other one N710CK came to pick up the cargo of N705CK

Greetings,

Nico

It was worth waiting for Kalitta. Saudi (although a regular visitor) made it complete.

I'm a but late with my pictures, but during the week I can't post anything on this forum so have to do it in the weekend.

Hope you liked them

greetz, Pietn

Cool down é Andries,
I've been told that Nikon Service is better than Canon's.
I'm very pleased with my camera, certainley in combination with that 50-500. but at high ISO level I get more noise than with canon, but I never use high ISO levels, I use a maximum of 400, it's only at ISO 800 it starts.
The camera is easy to use. I think I can say that you get the right stuff for the price. If you want a decend review, check this:
http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/nikond70/
Offcourse it al depends on how much money you want to spend at your camera. If you want to see more of my pictures with this camera , check them at Airliners.be, http://www.members.airliners.be/index.php?cat=10076
Also: having a good camera is one thing, but a long as you don't have a good lens, your images won't be topquality. Your camera can't correct the quality of your lens, so the same camera can give wonderfull pictures with one lens, and terrible pictures with another.(it all has to do with the glass elements inside the lens)
But eventually, the comparison between Nikon and Canon is one that never ends. I bought a Nikon because my dad already had Nikon and lenses that fitted. Soon I will have a D200 to tryout! then we will talk Andries :twisted:

greetz, Pietn

Canon? I think for (if I have the money -> the biggest problem) to buy the Canon EOS D350 is that a good one?

Well, actually, Andries didn't meant what he said, he always says that to "pest" me :) , but it's nothing serious.
The EOS 350, I find it a bit a piece of toy, a bit small too.
