Mirror lenses are a love 'em/hate 'em thing. I have an old Spiratone 500mm f/8 that I like to play with now and then - especially with the matched 2x TC. It helps to push the contrast up a bit in PP. The bokeh can work well with certain subjects and be distracting with others. For $60US, I can't complain...

I hit the Wolf Camera on San Felipe in Houston this evening and picked up another K100D Super for $209 (for my sister), a kit lens for $50, a AF200 flash (the new one) for $75 and a Remote F for $9.75. My sister is getting a new kit!

Earlier ths week ( on Sunday), got a call from my boss saying a truck driver at my job quit. I use to drive those trucks and kept my Commercial Driver's License as a backup plan for job purposes.

Well the route took me to the southwest side of Houston and one of the grocerey stores (I am a wholesale route sales rep.) was on San Felipe.

I remembered one of the Wolf Camera stores on that street you told me about and panned to my left and..... BAM!! There is was!

I went (actually almost ran) in and like you said I purchased a Quanteray 70-300 for $74, and a Quanteray TC for $23!

Been playing with the new toys ever since with my new K100D!
