Below are some of the better shots I took on a trip a Rome, Italy. Most pics were taken with a 10-24mm Nikkor lens and D5000. Overall I was really happy with the performance of this lens and glad I brought it with me.

The Colosseum


Victor Emmanuel Monument


The Pantheon


Sant'Ignazio


Trevi Fountain


Gesu


St. Peters


Pieta


The view from the top of St. Peters


Temple of Saturn


What remains of Basilica Fulvia-Aemilia


Galleria Borghese - unfortunately cameras can't be used inside here


Sistine Chapel


The exit stairway in the Vatican museum

    what wonderful photos!! What were you indoor settings, and did you use a filter outside?

    Inside settings are different depending on the picture. The camera was in auto mode most of the time. Nikon circular polarizer was used outside. (except for the wide angle shots)

    Thanks for the comments!

    I would wait for the D95 to come out - if you still want the D90 it'll be cheaper at that point. I don't know when it's coming out though.

    Pictures are awesome but bigger than that, how lucky you are to experience that type of history first hand!

    Impressive shots jdeg, I'm looking into a 10-24 now. Did you use a filter? and did you have to eliminate distortion or are these shots as taken? Thanks for any input.

    Thanks everyone. Cnyram, the 10-24 shots did not have a filter. Distortion and some color were corrected in photoshop afterwards (like the Sistine Chapel).
