RE: Plane Spotting At Kavl (Asheville, NC)

Thanks. I saw that parking lot and was wondering. Depending on what is coming in, it might be a bit far away. But I'll take it.

Anything around the airport property?

Of the folks that I know who use Lightroom, none use it exclusively. They all have some version of Photoshop for those moments when you need a feature, like Layers. Since you already have CS5, there's no problem. I would download the trial and check it out. The interface takes some getting used to.

My advice is the same as Colin's. I say you are fine with a point-and-shoot until you develop your skills enough to see for yourself what you are missing. PaS cameras have come a long way in recent years, and produce very high quality results.

Regarding AF degradation, it's all about the light. You are taking the lens to a constant f/5.6 which is the minimum aperture required for AF operation.
