That's the reason why I took this out of the mothballs. Originally, SIJ was about using the gear you have, in stead of constantly discussing new gear to improve your photography. This year, I took it one step further: using left behind gear that you were once very fond of. And yes, that fondness did not fade away with time. Sure, write times to the cards take getting used to, the limited set of very large focus areas make precise focusing difficult, but as a whole, I'm still very pleased with this set.
