Contest for free original M42 Adaptor or Lens

Okay, here's the deal. Whoever can guess the closest to what time (GMT) the 500,000th post will be posted wins... an M42 adaptor in the little green package. If you already have an adaptor and live in the States, I will subsitute a piece of glass to be determined by your needs. (It will be worth less than 35.00). If you live overseas, your only option is the adaptor... since I'm paying shipping.

You can only guess once every 12 hours, and your guess must be in this thread.

Your post/guess must be made at least 12 hours before the 500,000th's

Date, AM or PM does not matter.

In case of a tie, the person with the fewest total post to this forum will win... I figure they would more likely need the adaptor.

Good Luck!

Dang... not one guess... well, here's a pic of the lenses you could chose from if you win. One of them comes with a camera. If you lived overseas and wanted one of these... I would put five dollars towards shipping if you paid the rest.

The counter on my computer is on 489.877, and in my opinion that is more than 10.000 to go. So it could be any time of day, but I'm quite sure it's not this particular day, unless you guys out there have post diarrhoea .

I probably wait with my guess until the counter reaches the 500.000 really......

That's cool, thanks. I already thought this was another case of location discrimination.

I'll say 6:12.

P.S.: Interesting shooting technique. You actually took the shot of the lenses from the hip, didn't you?

You can guess once every twelve hours, just not within twelve hours of the 500,000th post... That means if it takes three days, you could possibly guess 5 or 6 times... kinda like chimpin', and idealy post a guess 12 hours before with the time at the bottom of this screen. GMT -6 hrs
