    I guess if you buy fat tyres you eat fat boy breakie, do they have old skinny breakie too? I could ride with some encouragement:)
    So is it easier for me to ask [MENTION=23043]DJY[/MENTION] (easy to spell logons should be compulsory:)) where Industry Cafe is or to gogle the my 'puter?

    LOL

    Industry Cafe is on the corner of Ipswich & Barrier St. Across the road from Harvey Norman.

    I usually check my bike into CMC, and then stroll down the footpath and sit in the cafe while they put my tyres on.

    Some bargain Nikon gear:
    D60 kit, a good starting package in Nikon if F-mount is your thing: http://www.allclassifieds.com.au/ac/display-ad?cid=123643216

    18-200VR, probably the pic of all DX lenses. Covers everything and doesn't suck like every other do-everything lenses: http://www.allclassifieds.com.au/ac/display-ad?cid=123611005

    28/2.8D, if you want to experiment with extension tubes, bellows or lens reversal for > 1:1 macro, this is the lens you want to start with: http://www.allclassifieds.com.au/ac/display-ad?cid=123593267

    Definitely great find.

    Got the D3100 body, 18-55mm VR and 55-200mm VR lenses. Bought in the US, discarded the box etc, so no cable or box (have cable etc anyway) dropped to $250.

    Sure didn't.

    After I saw your post, I did some research on this camera and it seems to get some very good reviews!!

    Thanks again mate. Now just have to get myself a nifty fifty!!

    Yup!
    Or on a crop body, also consider the 35mm DX 1.8G

    Photography course for me!

    The 35mm on a crop body give you closer to the 'traditional' film/full frame 50mm
