In Topic: Tokina 10-17 with 1.4TC on FX

Oh, ok, the d700 does not realize it is a dx lens without the contacts touching as the teleconverter is in place. Do you get all metering modes and TTL also?

Ummm maybe I missed a comment but DX lenses on FX bodies cut the MP count to like 5 something no? Although the pixels are high quality you are not getting the 12.1MP with a DX lens. Not sure this combination is a smart move.

In Topic: Upgrade Question From D70 to D90 or D300

Hi!
I kind of have the same question. I own a d300 but thinking about selling it and replacing it with the d90 because housing it with an aquatica is 1000 bucks cheaper for a d90(i live in sweden and our currency have lost 50% of it`s value against the dollar in six months)and my question is: is it really worth staying with d300 and maybe go for an ikelite housing? 12bit in raw(d90) against 14bit(d300) any difference in dr? more advanced autofoucs in d300(better?) etc...

I wonder why the housing prices seem to be based on the price of the cameras? A D300 and D700 are practically the same and the D90 is not that far off in regard to buttons etc. The D3 housing price is a ton also. I mean...maybe it is the expected sales and they can mass produce more D90's I don't know but it almost seems like the same tire on a rolls costs more than the same tire on a toyota. Materials and design aside 1000k less for the D90 is a consideration with the ability to get some video, though manual focus UW hmmmm might need the bigger viewfinder. I think there might be something on nikon's horizon to compete with the canon 5dMKII with 24mp and video but waiting sucks.
