Canon already has a replacement for the 50D (actually a step down from the 40D), called the 7D. Its lack of autofocus for video is hardly missed by anyone who used a camera before such aids became mandatory.

I would advise you to just wait a little and let the D3100 come out. It will have better specifications/features with probably lower price than D5000...more of it...it would be latest technology. An annoucement from Nikon is expected in mid-August. I will let you know as soon the official annoucement comes out.

Just a little rectification. The replacement of 50D is coming....that is 60D. Look at the price points of 7D and 50D and you can see that 7D is an upper level camera than the level of 50D. The 50D is already made unavilable at many places.

After reading a lot and looking at even more photographs, i am convinced that i need to buy a CPL filter for my Nikon D80. I am generally a landscape photographer, but i also do some architectural and street photography from time to time. Is a CPL useful in these fields too?

Btw, whats a basic CPL i can buy and how much should it aost (attachment size 67mm)?

I am also using D80 with 18-135 lens (67 mm). I have used a Marumi CPL. It cost about Rs. 800. But I would advise you buy a good CPL like Hoya. CPL are also useful in Architectures as it can darken the sky more and bring out the architecture more dramatically..

Basically, it is not needed in low light conditions.....unless you put your camera in stand and is searching for a ND filter...when the CPL can be handy.

ND stands for Neutral Density.. it comes in various grades ND2, ND4, ND8 etc. I simply cuts of light. The more its power , it will cut off more light. It is effective in catching the flow of water in a stream ....as it cuts of light....you have to increase exposure. By keeping aperture and ISO constant, you can increase the shutter speed to capture the mood of flowing water. As CPL filters also cuts of light (approximately 1.5x), it can be used tactfully as an ND1.5 filter in such conditions when an ND filter is not readily available.

Interesting!!!!

On a different note, i want to ask something to fellow photographers. The first requirement for clicking a good photograph is always a 'good eye' along with a basic good instrument, right?

but in the long run what matters the most? is it how sophisticated your camera is? or how comfortable you are with your camera?

Bhaswaran sir,
Would D5000 Suffice for Macros and Landscape Photography?
