Welcome! ... Willkommen! (please don't respond in German as I won't understand; I went to babel.altavista.com for the spelling of that. For all I know, even that might be 'americanized', missing some umlauts. )

To answer your question, as was said to me by a long time photographer friend of mine, "buy a tripod... it's the single best upgrade you can get for your camera".

Now maybe you already have one... dunno. If so, you're then ahead of me.

Thanks for the tips. I already have a tripod, but a cheap one. That's enough for my needs for now. Currently I'm looking for a camera bag for two lenses and one flash. My bag until now only fit for two lenses and one camera, not a flash. What do you suggest?

Hmm... I guess I'll wait until I buy a new lens. Maybe a long tele or a wide zoom. I'm not sure yet
(Is that LBA?)

I'm in the same boat; looking for another bag, maybe two, and not at all sure what I want. I have Tamrac sling now, the Velocity 9x, and it's both not big enough, and uncomfortable if I use it as designed as a sling as it chokes me when I have 20 pounds of gear in the bag. I wear it over one arm instead, defeating the purpose of its design. And there's no where to secure a monopod or tripod. That, and the subsequent lenses you keep buying, is indeed LBA!

Oh, no! I didn't notice I'm already infected. I hope my health care insurance does cover this.
(Maybe pay the lens for me?)

btw, let's get along
