Keep the lenses, sell the car and ride the bike to the bars (in summer). In winter, stay home!

Scott, I have really enjoyed your images of rural scenes as of late, they remind me of one of my favorite photographers, Richard Brown. I think you would like this book from him. I have read it at least 3 times and have learned a great deal.

Thank you Leighton and Peter. I took a quick peek at the book link and website. Definately need to spend some more time there.

Also thank you to Ben, Laura, and Craig for the comments. Peter, as for the snow around here, you learn to live with it and as a welcome seasonal change. What is the old saying, "if you have only lemons, then make lemonade". The same is true of the weather.

Kenny, nice shots.
The 400 3.5 is a great lens, tack sharp and not that heavy. Snaps in and out of focus, too.

Not heavy but I wouldn't want to try to handhold it for too very long.

This purchase rest's entirely on Leighton's shoulders. His constant posting of great images with his copy has had me looking for this lens for some time. I finally found one at a fair price and it turned out to be like new. I fully expected the zoom to be loose and the pleasant surprise is that it is pretty tight. I took 3 quick shots with it in the dark living room. I like it!

That 50-135 sure is nice! With my 80-200, I have been shooting a lot at 135mm, maybe I should have got one of those instead? Nah, I like my 80-200...just wish it was faster.

Good advice Peter, then Monty will have money for the 14-24 AFS as well as the 70-200. That will complete his AFS trinity

Kevin, just love your last two shots, including the arrow in the parking garage. The garage with the mural is well visualized and executed also!

Scott, the red barn in the snow is very nice. Its finally sunny here today and hope you get a break from the snow soon.

Chuong, nice equipment rust shots with the 135 f2 AI!

Kenny, very nice portraits of the mountain lion with the 400 3.5! The 400's just a tad lighter than the 500 F4P, and yes, those lenses are not hand holdable for extended periods of time.

Ron, cool new acquisition, looks like in good shape and did a great angled portrait of your dog!

Yes, I'm aware that I am 66.7% there
For now the cool 16mm will have to do the job for the wide stuff

It's been a few weeks of AF and I am starting to get the itch to put the 85mm back on
As someone here said, I can have both AF and MF lenses in my bag and they can happily coexist

Ahhh Monty's already got the itch. I just knew it

A few clicks from my alma mater, University of Maryland at College Park. This is interesting, I believe my first instance of moire!! And on a D800, not D800e. This was with the 20 3.5 UD. The football stadium was open and now I wish I had taken some shots with the 28 PC also.

The second shot shows off the ghost/flare characteristics in the 20 3.5 UD.

The third one is one of those large classrooms where as TA I kept an eye on the freshmen once upon a time There's some chemistry on the board, if its readable Laura can compare to her notes

Samy, I went to a Frank Zappa concert in Cole Field House back in the 70's, or was that the 80's.

Leighton, I think the 70's was Frank and "Mother's of Invention" and the 80's were Frank's "Weasels rip my Flesh"
I can't believe I can remember that

Two more - the Hornbake undergrad library, and the Stamp Student Union. Both with the 28 3.5 PC, using shift function.

Leighton neat memory of that place (kind of ). My first visit to Cole Field House was a see saw Terps-Blue Devils battle. Duke won by a point or two I think
