Oh, damn! This lens give-away thing is going to make it impossible for me top keep up with my subscribed threads. I think I'll have to unsubscribe to all and re-subscribe after things settle down. I guess the ramped-up activity will make PF more viable as a commercial enterprise but I think it's a pita. I guess I don't have to encourage you to discuss this assertion.

I don't recall anything in the rules that requires members to participate. The good news is that even posts whining about the contest count toward total entries for the day.

You think? Maybe I "spent" too many pictures yesterday, then... Or maybe they would be just a waste today, if nobody's gonna like them anyway

This is getting complicated! Good thing I still don't need another 50/1.8

Well, I don't have one, so I suppose I need it. But I'm quite sure I have exactly two chances of winning it: slim and none

Much as I'd like to sit here and play all day long, ain't gonna happen... neither will a K3

I've got the DA50. I just want my daily ticket so that I will get winner's choice at the end of the month. I want the DA40XS. That's the one I don't have.

I am proud of the fact that i have not been in the top 20 even once!!! I come here for the fun and enjoyment of all things photo and food with some nifty French info thrown in too!!! You guys go ahead and fight over the tickets like crows on a dead possum, I'll just watch and laugh!!
Oh and in case anybody hasn't guessed, not terribly competitive!

Me, neither. But -- not that it's going to happen -- I wouldn't send it back if it showed up on my doorstep!

(nor a K3, but I'm not buying one any time soon...somebody ELSE got the Power Ball jackpot...)

Eh, just post the way you'd always post and let the chips fall. The difference between being in the Top Twenty and not being there is a matter of what the other people did that day and how many Likes you received. You don't really control it, so why try to be there - or try NOT to be there.

I know of a *dude who might send that back. Even gaffer tape wouldn't satisfy him.

I know! Doggone it. All I want is the opportunity to prove that a large windfall will not spoil me!

I have the (modern) lenses I want for now, but now that I have been bitten by the "I spy" and "Alphabet" games I'm not going to stop posting just because there's a competition going on. Most of my posts are with pictures or comments about pictures, in addition to some silly ones in here, of course.

And that's why I won't etc...
