Peter,

I'm not sure what's wrong with this question? I have found that the 24-70 offers improved social grace compared to the 24-105. I'm sure it would be the perfect mate for a 70-200.

I live in Nova Scotia. That's prety much terrible humidity from Spring through Fall. I use a dry cabinet that's branded CameraStorage.com, but they appear to be out of business. It looks exactly like this product, in fact in probably is:

Yes, the full complement of compliments appear here... ;-)

It isn't about "hard." It is about fun... ;-)

But when it comes to gears, this is (these are?) my favorite(s): http://www.gdanmitchell.com/2012/12/07/the-only-wow-lens

Does it bug anyone else when someone uses "gears" for plural?


You're not alone. One member who shall remain nameless (because someone else already mentioned him) continues to do so out of some perverse need to be deliberately irritating.

I used to post this image when I came across improper usage, but I've pretty much given up:

Well, I thought it was quite fun watching all the praise my 24-70L gave my 70-200 f/4. The 24-70 is well known to be a most gracious and humble lens. I could tell the 70-200 f/4 was really eating it up. It was all .

I think we tend to be a bit profligate with the cheers.
All of my gear(s) combined surely only merit(s) one cheer.

Storage

Old Canon bag I overpaid for at Best Buy a couple of years ago

Peter, Peter, your etymological skills seem to be soaring with your birds...or is it those flies testing your entomological kills? Swat ever 'tis, I assure you that not only am I the same old changeling/clone you've always known, but I shall soon be officially old. And I am not a crook and I never hired those plumbers.

I'll play along with the OP, though my gear is pretty dated...

Hope to be able to upgrade by the end of this year.
