    Maybe so. But I need another camera like I need a hole in the head, so if it all works ok, it’ll probably be up for sale here in week or two!

    I use a fomapan look in DxO often for a very good reason - look at these shots and this film stock. Fantastic.

    It’s apparently already been a year since the last Wicipi (pow wow), and this coming weekend it’s back. Unfortunately I have a pretty packed weekend already planned and may not make it back. Last year was great -

    Wound up coming home from work today with another camera. A Z50. Not sure if it works or not, but it looks in good shape, so I bought a battery and a body cap for it and we’ll see what happens with it.

    "Aviation Photo Thread" (Planes, Helos, Balloons, etc)...

    Someone definitely needs a spelling lesson. I don’t think the issue was too many “s’s”, but one too many “r’s”. Synchronicity can be an odd thing though, can’t it? It’s nicer though when it doesn’t remind you of such a terrible occurrence however, and the loss of your mentor.

    Nature Show Landscape

    I sold my e-pm2 about 2 years ago maybe, just due to not seeing much use any longer. I kind of miss it for sentimental reasons, but I doubt I’d repurchase one even though I look at them often. When I did have it, I never used an electronic viewfinder, although I was curious about them. I’ll be...

    Micro 4/3 GH6 Special offer from B&H

    Ding ding ding, we have a winner. Most folks are sitting on (way) too many, they’re not really moving all that well, and the GH5 models are about to see some big price cuts in the coming months.

    I work at the headquarters for a major retailer and I support the digital imaging business, and work with all the major vendors.

    Yeah, even though I’d normally chose a 35 over a 50, this 50 seems pretty darn nice.

    I’m also a fan of antique electronics and restoring what I can. Love to see the old stuff working if possible.

    It sounds absolutely amazing. And yes, it’s a beast, I think it officially weighs in at 67 pounds. I either use my record player (Fluance RT85 with Ortofon Blue cartridge), CD (Pioneer Elite) or computer audio (Cambridge Audio DAC) as a source which is currently routed through my Marantz pm8004...

    Yup, the 24-85 is far and away the nicest “kit” lens I’ve ever used. It really shouldn’t even be considered an entry level lens. Quality is great throughout the range and the sun stars are beautiful. It’s just a balancing act of size/weather sealing…something always has to give.

    Thank you! These are great. That lens has a nice ‘pop’ to it. That’s getting my GAS going.

    Agree with pretty much all of this. I have a half case on my Df and the ergonomics are mildly improved. I have also opted for the very nice Nikon 24-85 (although not weather sealed) as my everyday lens on the camera, as it’s much more compact than any 2.8 and fits the camera perfectly imho.

    With the amount of stuff that comes and goes through my doors over here, I think I may be in the photo retail trade as well…it’s just unofficial. Thankfully I don’t have a murderous wife?

    I have my eyes set on this exact lens as my next purchase. Ideally one or two of my lenses up for sale will go before I buy this one. I have several saved on ebay. Let me know your thoughts, it looks like a gem. Congrats.
