S-M-C Takumar 50mm f/1.4:

'My beaut'.

I finished bleaching the radiated element today, and I love it even more now.

Fire Extinguisher

My wife refers to my Pentax K 2000/13.5 Reflex as "The Fire Extinguisher" because of the similarity in size to a water pressure extinuisher

Wow, lots of pet names. Are any of these widely used or recognised?
The Amigos and the Bigma are pretty widely used. As for the others, they are more personal I think.

Sigma 17-70 = Swiss Army Knife lens

It does fairly wide to short tele + close up (1:2.3), meaning anywhere from wide landscapes to up close and personal--very versatile.

The Swiss army knife ... I really like that ! I think it could stick. I know that I will use it now.

You South Australians are crazy.

Are you serious or did you just make those names up on the spot?

2000 nicknames for you

More than 2000 code words exist, the use of some has been adopted by collectors, NOOKY for example, a macro ring for the Elmar 3.5 / 50 mm for use at a screw mount Leica.
