I would avoid the 75-300. If you're shooting a Rebel or xxD, consider the 55-250 IS as well.
do you have a link where i can find the 70-210mm f3.5-4.5 USM? i have done a few searches and cant seem to find that one anywhere

Or just buy once cry once with a decent body, get a couple of lenses, and add more later on.
Just get a H4D-60 and be done with it.

pretty sure he's 100% right. do your research before you buy, no sense in getting something you don't need. if you're not a photographer like you said, there is ZEROOO point in getting a full frame. or even anything more then a d40 to be honest. why spend hundreds/thousands on something you're not?

I'm thinking of selling my D40 with the 18-55 kit lens with non vr and a 2GB memory card. I also have the box and all the manuals in excellent condition. What do you think would be a fair price for it?

I've got a question...
Does shooting in RAW make your sports pictures better? or do the jpeg files work better? I know that RAW take up more memory space, but what is the reason for using RAW over something else?

More data to use when editing, more data to use when cropping.
I shoot RAW 100% of the time, it doesn't add anytime to my workflow over JPG and the images come out much much better.

So there isn't any difference except the amount of usable material stored on the card?

RAW stores 12 or 14 bits per channel of data per pixel, whereas jpeg only stores 8 bits per channel. This means that there is more bit depth than a standard jpeg which allows a wider range of possible colors.

For real life situations, it gives you a better chance to save a photo when you **** up compared to a jpeg

From Wiki - A camera raw image file contains minimally processed data from the image sensor of a digital camera. Raw files are so named because they are not yet processed and therefore are not ready to be printed or edited with a bitmap graphics editor. Normally, the image is processed by a raw converter in a wide-gamut internal colorspace where precise adjustments can be made before conversion to a "positive" file format such as TIFF or JPEG for storage, printing, or further manipulation, which often encodes the image in a device-dependent colorspace. These images are often described as "RAW image files", although there is not actually one single raw file format. In fact there are dozens if not hundreds of such formats in use by different models of digital equipment (like cameras or film scanners). Raw image files are sometimes called digital negatives, as they fulfill the same role as negatives in film photography: that is, the negative is not directly usable as an image, but has all of the information needed to create an image. Likewise, the process of converting a raw image file into a viewable format is sometimes called developing a raw image, by analogy with the film development process used to convert photographic film into viewable prints. The selection of the final choice of image rendering is part of the process of white balancing and color grading. Like a photographic negative, a raw digital image may have a wider dynamic range or color gamut than the eventual final image format, and it preserves most of the information of the captured image. The purpose of raw image formats is to save, with minimum loss of information, data obtained from the sensor, and the conditions surrounding the capturing of the image (the metadata)

Basically it boils down to this; If you plan to post process your photos then shoot RAW. If you plan to load your pics straight to the web use JPG.

Hey I was given the chance to get a 1d Mark IIn for 950. The shutter just got replaced by canon. I don't want it and don't really know if it is a good deal, would anyone want it?

Where would be the best store to buy a battery charger cheap? It needs to be a store, because I need it soon. Would Walmart have chargers?

if its for a PnS, an electronics store or radio shack might have something. A DSLR batter charger may be harder to find
