Folgers aroma seal ?? Which size ??
dunno...it's horrible coffee I gave away I brought the hood into the grocery store
and found it in 30 seconds. Oh, punch a small vent hole in it so any condensation can't get trapped.


I don't drink coffee, so I was thinking about taking hood with me to store. I won't buy it, I'll just take a couple lids.

you guys have to stop with this kind of topics - the need and want for this lens is getting unbearable !!!!

every photo we get is tearing us more !


all I have to do now is to figure out way how to get this lens ? maybe by selling everything I have I may be able to get enough to get it

if i sell 70-200 + 14-24 + 100VR => 1300 + 1300+ 650 = 2950 damn still not there

At the rate my kids are drinking coffee here, I get folgers. My lids are black, so they'd even be the right color, . Right now we're going through about 3 large containers a week.

Ahh, I had the choice of black or gold...went for the "bling"
Much easier to find amongst all the black bags, etc.

This lens, a passel of TCs, and The Beast make a nice 2-lens kit for youth sports.

we'll "uncover" them as it starts to warm up...barrel racing/poles won't be too far off.

I love that shot, Monkey. I hope it doesn't prove as controversial the second time round.

The 200VR is the one expensive piece of glass I've lusted after since moving to Nikon, even though I have no real "need" for it. I fear this thread will be bad for my marriage.

One more from today before I hit the hay:

Sorry about the crap sharpening, I am using an Aperture frames plugin called Border FX, and the built-in sharpening in it is junk. Does anyone have a tip for me here, other than use Photoshop?

Was shootin' a 1D2n at the time and the 1.4TC. The Nikon was sharper wide open with the 1.7 (1.5x crop or FF body)
Shot rodeo side by side. I'll give you the handling (pound + lighter) but that was it. Take w/grain of sand, moved to
Nikon after 30 yrs with Canon. FX high ISO and superb AF no doubt clouding my judgement.
This IS the NIKON Forum Luis, no
