And the tequila could not stop me, so the deed is done:

Now I am going to have to sell a bunch of old lenses I do not really care for anyway. (Three or four should cover this) Heck maybe I will just sell the 50mm 1.2 and keep some change, it is engraved but by the marine corps recruit depot.

what is it with you guys?? Phillippe....love your work, really, love it....but this is weird. I never mentioned the 20 or the 85.

YOU asked ME if I preferred the 3.5 UD or the 2.8....and I posted a few pics. That was all YOU!!
And in all of that I've never mentioned an 85.

I love the 85mm f1.4 AIS.....but I don't think it'll give you anything the zeiss 85 doesn't (maybe less). I don't have the zeiss 85 (I have the 100) - but I've seen a lot of your stuff with the 85 on the zeiss thread. fantastic. I'd be

Scott, despite fall slipping away you captured some nice colors with these two images. The second one with the tree trunks in front of the bright blue sky and yellow and green foliage is very pleasant.

Thank you Samy. It was a beautiful morning that day.

I honestly can't see how it was misrepresented unfortunately. You should have asked questions regarding things like dust, as every AI/S lens I have has dust, they aren't brand new. Description doesn't say it comes with caps either. I think you just made assumptions without any questions being asked, I can't see how you'd win with an ebay complaint.

It is OK that caps are not included, just bad service, but "perfect glass and barrel" and "smooth focus" it does not have, easily proven by photos and laying hands on it. Language in description is a contract, they did not say "beautiful" or "mint" which are relative terms, "perfect" is perfect, no wear or damage. My lenses of this vintage do not have dust like this one does. The seller accepts returns for 14 days with 20% re-stocking, I already asked them to refund 100%, not 80%, given the inaccurate description. If they agree, then I do not need to file a case. I have found e-bay buyer protection very supportive in the past. That and negative feedback. Worst case I am out $100 and more convinced than ever to see good photos of the item or not buy.

Once I bought a lens with a rub on the glass, the seller did not agree to refund but e-bay refunded me anyway, with only my word for it.

Thank you Monty, I have contacted the seller and am not worried about resolution, just disappointed that I did not find the perfect 55mm 1.2 SC as advertised. I rarely have used e-bay buyer protection but when I did, they were very responsive and supportive.

What a jackass. He even put smooth focus in the listing heading. I have to say I have bought a ton of lenses and really not had one experience like this Rafael. A couple months back I bought one described as perfect and it had a nasty dent in the filter ring and nothing would mount. I sent it back to him. He paid to have it returned and he fixed it. Never know it was even dented. He does repairs in his spare time and I just sent a trashed 55 micro to him to see what he can do with it.

Ron, this seller's standard may just be different from mine, but he needs to be more careful with descriptions and not call it perfect, if they agree to 100% refund I will just call it a day. The defects are cosmetic, but the desctription was inaccurate.

Philip, great news, congrats! If possible give us the link of your photo at flickr;


Thanks Jose!

It's this photo: http://www.flickr.com/photos/philipj/6952023106/in/set-72157626002898381

It's getting used for some positive story about working at the hospital, or something.

Meanwhile, tonight's offering is a 4 shot stitch with the 105mm f/1.8 AI-s (wide open, of course!) of a famous live music venue in downtown Toronto getting some brickwork refinished, or something. The scaffolding makes for nice light.

To close out this discussion, the seller politely agreed to 100% refund. Does anybody know where I can find a perfect 55mm 1.2 SC?

Good morning everyone. Thanks for all the birthday greetings, I had a wonderful time, nice dinner with the lady, movie (James Bond), drinks and importanly the baby was at home with the sitter - first time in far too long we have escaped.

Now a tale to amuse you all. This morning I got up nice and early and excitidly took the new 55mm out to see if Leighton is right that this lens is great for landscapes - clear day and the morning sun on the trees is just stunning.

I own 2 cameras, a D4 and a D200. Let me tell you an important difference between the two. The D200, if you don't have a memory card in it, you cannot take a photo. With the D4 you can. Yes, the D4 has 'demo mode' where you can take photos without a memory card - unless you notice the small icon in the viewfinder you may miss that this is happening. Let's just say I did not notice this icon. Not for a looong while and after quite some walking and shooting.
As Homer Simpson would say - DOH!

Well, I look forward to posting some photos from this lens...just not today.

gee Mark - I can think of a few more differences between the D800E and the D200. One is that, no matter what, I just can't focus the 55mm f1.2SC on it.....lol

The Jacaranda trees are shedding - even the Japanese are taking pics of it

Is this your basement Curtis? Could you host me for a month in order to write a review of your wine collection?
