Thanks Ray, I've had this since before Halloween, and it's just now starting to turn. I'll have to see how far I can keep it

Ha Ha Reagan, guess when your weather isn't quite so cold and you don't see snow, it's easier to forget what month it is

Thanks Scott, I figured I'd get the old D50 out of mothballs and give it a whirl too.

Thanks, Leighton. Don't really have a shooting style. Seems to me I am more infatuated by the equipment!

Here is what I was just doing, and something that might be of interest to others here:

In Lightroom, Library mode, hit the backslash key to bring up the Library Filter (make sure you have selected a folder containing a representative amount of recent photos. Mine has over 46,000...) Choose Metadata. You can then see all of the Cameras and Lenses you have used to take the photos in that folder, or folders. You can see a count for each item, etc. Fascinating.

For me, it shows that I took almost as many photos with the X100 in one year as I did with the 7D in four. I think this is more about the shooting experience than about the quality of the image. And I have already taken more photos with the D700 than with the X Pro 1 (although that may change if Adobe does indeed update Lightroom tomorrow...)

So, no pattern. The 180 is the last of the supposed Nikon classic mf lenses that will round out my lineup, and I am leaning to it...


Hi David,

I have the 180 and 300mm and I would personally go for the 180, it's an amazing lens and unless you want it for bird shots then the 180 will give you a ton of versatility and razor sharpness. I don't have the 20mm, from what I read it is supposedly a great lens as well but I think that the 180 is pretty fantastic and hard to beat.

I've had it half the time and done more with it than the 300.

Of course the 20mm will give you a focal length you don't already have covered (even if it is by an AF lens).

Nice party for your niece Ron, and looks like good pizza too! I did note the Ravens cap but I was in DC today.

A few pictures from the Vietnam Memorial, all with the 55 1.2.

The memorial wall.













And statues near the memorial.

I thought that pizza looked familiar! We have a house at Harvey's Lake where the original Grotto Pizza is located. Great pizza.
I also have relatives in Houston, DE who worked at Rehobeth Beach.

Kevin they're looking good. 6121 is amazing - the lines, shapes and shadows. Well done!

Was this you Curtis?

When I saw this I thought for sure Curtis was selling off his equipment.

That's quite some ship, and the view out the window looks great too. I've forgotten what the sky looks like behind all the clouds we've had for several months. I even went to Italy and all I got was a blizzard and several hour flight delay.

It looks like a lot of people to the reunion, hope you are having a great time.

Nice looking party Ron - had a very nice week on the shore fairly close to Dover AFB 2 years ago with family but our pizzas didn't look that good!

Samy, your images of the memorials and statues are well taken and remind us that we all end up in the same place at the end. The men in the foreground are probably in their '60's now and I can recall quite clearly being on a PanAm flight to Tehran in 1968 with quite a few young guys my age who were on their way to Viet Nam. Now 45 years on one has to ask "what for?"

I wonder what this generation of soldiers will be saying in 40 years time about their wasted efforts in far flung wars?

Rafael - looks like a fun group. Hope you enjoyed it.

Chuong - it's good watching the kids on this thread growing up and doing what kids are supposed to do Lovely shot.

Laura - I like the pumpkin but please stop before you join the ranks of grunge photographers
