I have a Fuji film S9600 and I'm after a good polarized lens. Any recommendations appreciated

Not bothered on the cost.

Thanks in advance.

well it depends

has she had a camera before? is she thinking of going further with it??

if she is keen i would plump for a prosumer slr to start with even second hand, one that has a auto setting but one that will allow manual or program over ride

stick with nikon or canon and she will be able to grow the system and move up to a better camera if she takes to it

a nikon d40x, d80 , d40, or newer with a medium compact zoom kit lens or a canon 350, 400 with again a kit lens

have a look at used specialists like ffordes photographic or mifsuds they have a good range of used or new

with a good reputation

thats my opinion, i had a slr from the age of 10 so i think with all the help and info on the web these days she will get more out of a good used dslr and will see better results with one imho

good luck

No worries Ken , thanks for the comments , d700 is a stunning camera if you don't need the crop factor full frame for me , looking at longer glass for my wildlife stuff v new crop body will wait till later half of he year see what nikon will lunch

Still not sure about the feel of the d7000 , not bad with the grip mind

Bit of a long shot here...

Ref the D7000 and D700...I use a Nikon-fit Sigma f2.8 105mm macro lens, but it seems that apparently the Sigma will not match up with either the D7000 or the D700...Anybody found this to be the case?

Giving the photo edge a soft look tends to focus the interest in the subject, nice one

i understand what you mean with the hd movie mode, but i feel that all dslr will be using this soon, there is a big push to make the pro sector hd movie people look at dslrs

even simon king is using the canon d7 coms sensor ( dx) and full frame d5 mkii to make movies, taking advantage of the crop factor and long lens, and some other bits

i am in the market for a second body and have a d40x, 2 d70s and a d700, love the d700 its just so amazing, but would love a dx sensor pro body d300s but then came the d7000 good specs but just dont like the feel, love my d70s like you ken and just like the d700 a joy to hold, the finder on the d700 is graet nice and bright,some of the results from the d7000 look good but think i will wait for a d400?? just to see which direction nikon are taking the new sensor?? bet it has hd movie!! 1080 or the new d4?? best get saving



Dave i have an old 50mm AI-S f1.8 manual focus on my d700 and it is stunning, sharp the good thing about the fx range is the ability to use older lenses
