I've missed quite a bit. We are very sad here as my wife's great-grandfather passed last week after a 5 year battle with Parkinson's Disease. He was truly the rock in her family. Life goes on though.
Jorge, I'm really sorry to see you having to dump so many great lenses.
Leighton, the farm is looking lovely.
Elton, I like both color and B&W. Each works well in their own ways.
Ben - Nice work with the 35/2OC.

If you want even faster, put an i7-3770 Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz in a PC and overclock it to 5.0GHz and also add at least 16 gigs of RAM and put LR on a SSD. Now you're talking speed!
Is that what Ivy Bridge is capable of Leighton? I haven't overclocked in a couple of years. My last OC was pushing a Q6600 up to 3.94GHz on air while running dual GPU's. The machine also had 6 HDD's, and water cooling with dual radiators... I think it pulled around 850W at the wall... I ended up eventually dumping it for a lower power quad, SSD, single HDD, single low wattage GPU, and air cooling. I now hit full load at around 180W, but rarely pull more than 120.
Roy's 180/2.8 will be a nice lens. I bought my 35/1.4 from him. Never should have let it go.
I've been playing with the V1. It's a bit disappointing honestly, and it will probably go back to B&H. The video is nice, but I didn't buy it to be a video camera. The search for a competent, small digital mirrorless body continues.
Welcome to lots of new faces around here too!
BTW, here is a currently cheap 300/2.8 for any who are interested: Temptation
