Upload & Sell: On
I don't think there's a lens in my kit that I've regretted buying, but I am selling off a few bits of kit (AF so far) just to simplify my life. Definitely the 105 f/2.5 should be in your kit, and the 180 f/2.8 AI-s, I have two, one's a little beat up on the body of it, but glass is good. Soon as I find time to get some shots of it, I may post it on B&S.
There seems to be a few people asking about/adding different MF lenses here from time to time. I only have two so far, but plan on more eventually.
For all the "regulars" here, what is the lens you are most happy you acquired....
.... and which (if any) do you wished you hadn't?

Now how do I mark a specific post in this thread?

Scary end of the day for sure, glad she wasn't hurt. I know those boards aren't comfortable either. Lovely shots, looks like a great place.
We finally cashed in an offer from our friends to go out wine tasting this past weekend. First stop was Baily's Vineyard and Winery where we ate lunch at Carols' Restaurant and then did a bit of wine tasting. I had my first port and even learned how it was made. We then went down the road to Ponte for another tasting. We still had fun there, but it was too busy for my taste. I am not a fan of having to practically yell to have a conversation.
We were heading out the door to go home and Jen caught the edge of the mat by the front door and crashed pretty hard onto the ground. She scraped her knees and elbow and shattered the glass when she hit. They called for an ambulance since she said that her neck hurt a little, so she got a free ambulance ride while bolted into a c-spine. Not the best way to end the day, for sure. I knew that she was ok and that they were just being cautious, but at first I was pretty scared. You never like to see your loved ones go down like that. She laughed and told me to take her picture as they were putting on the collar. She totally gets me...
WOW, jaw dropper!

Great, thanks for sharing the setup. Looks like I'll hit Lowe's this weekend for some pipe, too
I used my DIY $10 lightbox setup again - somebody asked last time to share how I do this:
there is a PVC pipe frame holding up a bedsheet, and on each side sits a flash shooting at the sheet from a few feet, while the camera triggers those with the built-in flash (and kleenex diffuser). I use a whibal card to get the color correct, because the bedsheet is never really "white"
The PVC frame was built from about 20 feet of 1/2 pipe, cut with a hack saw, and held together by L and T connectors at each corner. This is just pushed together so I can fold it up. top left corner of the frame below:
And yes, I've been busy, Chemistry is kicking my mental butt something fierce. New kitty had her surgery today too, so that puts an end to the love calls that have been made here for the last week... Oh... btw,
I Have A Name! Moggy Nikki!
