Hi again...I'll make this one short, brief, and concise.

1. What's a decent UV lens protector should I get for my 18-200 VR lens? size, brand, price range?

2. Should I also get a 50 mm f 1.8 lens? if yes... what kind of UV should I get?

3. What website can I visit that tells me how to take great photos...as if it's almost like you're in a class and it tells you step by step but it's free.

One more thing...where can I order these gadgets? (reputable website) please help... have to have the 50 mm before halloween.

Thanks!

While Gordon's soon to come tutorials aren't available, try here.

As for reputable shops, there's a few on this list.

Thanks Luis...


Zorro... I'm in the U.S...Arizona state to be exact.

I've also noticed that you have the 50 mm.

I'm a newbie... i really know "nothing about dslrs" but I'm sure I can learn and be great at it. I just have to know where to start and what gadgets I need to be getting.

I know this is the Nikon forum but I think its still relevent.

There is like a 16 part guide on how to use the Canon EOS 350D, although a lot is done with the 350D in mind, there are still some parts which are relevent - but the audio goes a little out of sync!

You can find the rest of the parts from there.

Not Nikon but I hope it helps.

Hoya or Jessops UV filters should do, and it depends on the thread size at the end of your lens, e.g. 52mm, 58mm, 72mm etc.

I to am planning to get a 50mm F/1.8 lens, depending on the thread size, I think 58mm, then a 58mm Hoya or Jessops UV will do just fine.

UV filters as far as I know as simply used to protect the front element of the lens from getting dusty, scratched etc. when in use.
