Super Lurker revealed!

Hi,

I've been lurking around this forum for a long time. Around 2009, I actually registered-- but I didn't actually post until today. Why pick today to post? I was looking at some gear in the Marketplace and I noticed the notice telling me I should post. Lemming that I am, I went along with the request.

Anyway, at this rate, expect my next post around 2019!

-Robert

Don't wait so long next time. Maybe post a pic that matches your user name.

Welcome.

What I want to know is how you have been here for half a decade and survived 5 CP+'s, 3 Photokinas, an acquisition by a copier company, and many other events, yet abstained from the endless speculation and rumor mill (which, in case you weren't aware, has been officially proven as the only perpetual motion device in existence).

Not only does that call into question your Pentaxian-ness, you should be studied for science...

And used as proof that abstinence truly is possible...

You do realize that you have wasted 5 years of your life?

Actually, I suspect that Robert had a wonderful, fulfilling five years while the rest of us...were here.

Welcome back anyway Robert!

Wow! Thanks for all the feedback, guys!

Chromo, I do have opinions, (after all, I feel that in photography, the stronger the point of view, the better the images will be) but I guess I'm less vocal -- kinda like Clint Eastwood with a camera. Ha!

Now I'm on a roll-- two posts in five years! Woohoo!

All this time I've visited on a sort of regular basis, but I just never felt I had anything meaningful to add to the discussions, but rather, I had much to learn. Too many people jump into forums without learning the nature of that forum's culture before hand, I feel.

Alex, nice to see you still visit here. I like your technique for holding long lenses, even works for the 1000mm down to about 1/15sec (but not entirely reliably).
