    I'm currently looking at getting some new lenses for my Nikon FM-10. Since I'm on a somewhat limited budget, I've beed looking at lenses from other manufacturers. I was wondering if anyone here had any experience with lenses from Vivitar and Phoenix. Vivitar has a 100/3.5 macro lense for under $150 (compared with $600 for a Nikon lense) and Phoenix has a 19-35/3.5-4.5 that I'm interested in. Does anyone have experience with these two manufacturers?

    Also, I'd like to pick up an inexpensive speedlight to go along with my camera. Since Nikon's offerings are more geared towards AF cameras, I've been looking at Sunpak and Vivitar models. Does anyone have experience with these two manufacturers? Any comments and/or suggestions would be much appreciated!
