Yeah, DA35 for the win! Seriously though, it could do with HD, DC, WR. But that's photo talk ...

Hey! I shoot a plastic fantastic 35 on my *cough* K-mumble. It's a good little lens!
What's that? I couldn't hear you. Your K-what? What kind of gaffer tape do you use on the back?

Nothing against the plastic fantastic - I have two (one black, one white). However, Limiteds are hand-assembled by actual pixies, and a little pixie dust gets into every one!

Who's talking about gear? I was talking about seeing signs of the apocalypse in public places - and pixies.


(Largely because of this thread, I really was craning my neck to see if the dread Mark of hociR was so horribly obvious out in the real world.)

Better to distract the masses with talk of gear than to indulge the impulses of WINE SNOBS!!!

I can't drink wine, and I'm the only soda snob I know, so I can't say much. (I toasted our FoundingFatherdude with a nice Appalachian Bev Co White Birch Beer.)

(Sitting in a restaurant, taking advantage of free Wifi, listening to a three-year-old throw a tantrum - when Dad pulled him aside, it was "I-want-my-mommy-want-my-mommy-want-my-mommy". So Mom swapped with Dad, and when she didn't cave, he switched to "my-daddy-my-daddy-my-daddy". I couldn't make out what started it all, but I'm pretty sure it was something about a "full frame".)

Yeah, sounds about right. I'm sure he usually hangs out with the other three-year-olds over in the FF section. Or worse, in the N&R kindergarden - tantrum galore!

I`m not buying the K3, because my wife stayed up all night, after catching food poisoning from some restaurant in Virginia.
Luckily, I was not inconvenienced by her long spout in the water-closet...

Still awake, but not for long. Could do with some wine, but lately acquisition of mountaineering gear and frequent visits to both the climbing gym and local pubs have strained my student budget. And my bottle of single malt is almost dry too ...

No student budget here but I actually got my bottle of wine as a thank you for a photographic favor. But I feel sleepy to. Time to go to bed and eat breakfast with strong coffee and pig related stuff in the morning...😉
