comment Does the convergence of video and photo technology in digital cameras have a negative impact on strictly photographic ability?
"Combined still and video is the way of the future" SERIOUSLY?

comment What kind of camera do I need to capture deep space images?
These are quite difficult to shot. (I believe that's the milky way) This is more about a tripod and post processing then it is about the camera. (The tripod must be capable of compensating for earth's rotation) There is also good deal of post processing involved to take out the noise inherent in long exposures like these. It looks like there is also some sort of light painting involved here to illuminate the structure.

This really depends on what you normally shoot. The 18-135 is an OK starter kit lens; good for many situations but a master of none.

comment Nikkor f/1.8G 35mm or 50mm?
I never had a 35mm prime so take this with a grain of salt; I think the 35mmm might be too wide for portraits. I have a 17-40mm lens and even at 40mm it is a bit too wide. Perfect for full body shots but facial features up close are a bit distorted. I love my 50mm F1.4. I was a Pentax user before I was canon and the 50mm has been one of my favorite lenses on both cameras. Certainly the most fun to use both indoors and out. Personally I don't find it awkward at all but I guess it is because i like to get close. I guess this comment could be a question; is the 35mm too wide for portraits

comment Which camera bag for a single DSLR camera plus 2 lenses?
How is the bag 1/2 down the road? Still good? I have the Lowepro slingshot mentioned above and its way too small for a full size DSLR + 70-200 L + 2 lenses. Will absolutely not fit with a battery grip. I am looking for something roomier and comfortable. Would you care to share your experiences?

This bag does not fit a dlsr with a 70-200mm f/2.8 lens attached and 2 other lenses and a flash in the bag.

comment Can I get noise reduction in Aperture that even gets close to the quality of Lightroom's?
Good point @jrista. Only about 1% of all my images get the "NIK" treatment. Out of those most are HDR which are inherently noisier. Lightroom is great for most family photos and snapshots but as for the handfull of images I actually spend some time on in post processing I usually have several copies of in various stages of processing.

comment What type of filters should I get for high sunny conditions?
You could also stack the HD and the CP filters. I had the CP Hoya for Pentax and if I remember correctly Pentax lens hoods have a removable opening on the hood that allows you to turn the CP filter easily with the hood on.

comment What settings should I use to photograph aurora borealis with a wide angle f/4 lens?
i went out but no northern lights this time. i made a few night shots though. I downloaded the Aurora Borealis forecast app so hopefully I will be able to catch them better next time....
