every company like bunga bunga name one, wait till u listen to koenigsegg CCX describtions…

okay back to topic

  1. i cant seem to find a single complete online page that explain the jargon used by cameras. so here we go…
    AF18-200MM F3.5-6.3 XR DI II (listen carefully, see how thier bunga works)

VR = Vibration reduction (nikon), IS - Image Stablizer (canon), SSS - Super Steady Shot (Sony Alpha)… you should understand this.

ED =Extra-Low-Dispersion… Nikon especially developed ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass to provide pricise optical colour correction. To reduce chromatic aberrations. Its just a lens coating. inspire! it is not ED PAUL! wakakaka

XR = extra refractive(for TAMRON only)… same as Nikon’s ED -Extra-Low-Dispersion, use to fix some ‘color’ that causes out of focus. another marketing naming gimmick.

*info of the lens u are looking at incase u ask more bout it.
*Di-II = digital-only lenses, smaller image circle, so it mean it only works with APS-C sensor, (same meaning as sigma = DC, nikon = DX, minolta/Alpha = DT, canon EF-S)

as for a full 35mm size sensor, or useable on Film SLR, look for canon = EF, sigma = DG, tamron = Di, sony = (dont have the word DT), nikon = (dont have the word DX)

i love to tell u more, but i will get badmouth by some people here.

  1. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nikon_F-mount *be real careful, u might get poison here… and there are some nikon’s jargon info on the bottom (VR, AFS, etc…)

  2. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bokeh

If you could pick up 10% of what is in there, it’s good enough TECHNICAL KNOWLEDGE to make great photos.
