Christmas in August

Good news! Christmas in August. Santa showed up today driving a US postal truck and handed me two packages. One was my new 06 zoom and the other was the used black Q7 I purchased. The shutter count on the Q7 was 136 so it itís virtually brand new and will make a nice complement to my existing Q7.

Bad news! Itís getting cloudy and they are predicting rain for the next two days. That puts a damper on the outdoor head shots I was planning on doing tomorrow morning. But that gives me more time to study/enjoy/appreciate the street shots some of you have been posting.

Congratulations! You'll probably double that shutter count before the week is out. Too bad they didn't weatherize the Q line.

There is always the future. One can hope Would not require any extra battery power from the Q.
thanks

Nice addition CWRailman. Low shutter count is a plus. Less body wear. Actuation count is probably a better description since the shutter is in the premium lenses.
thanks

Q is fun.

I actually like the looks of the black one better than the silver.

I'm REALLY liking the results I'm getting with the 06 lens. Took some outdoor head shots with it this morning and despite the fact that I messed up with the camera contrast settings ( forgot to change them from a previous indoor shoot) this could end up being my new favorite lens for the Q series.
