    Thanks Jools.

    Jools i figured i would message you about the 20-40 limited. In my Flickr response I wrote it's my favorite APS-C lens. To go further: My copy is pretty much in the norm of how this lens operates as the reviews of it have said. 40 mm is consistently sharp at all apertures while at 20 mm it is not that sharp at the edges from from 2.8 to just below 8, but the center is. I like the bokeh a bit more at 20 mm than at 40 but is is good at 40. I have an album on Flickr of shots taken with the 20-40, if you want to take a look.

    Hello, Julio! I was just flipping through the 2010 "Single In September" book we made with our contributions from that contest. It's been over six years already! The pics still hold up. 8)

    Thanks Jools, the appreciation is mutual and if you ever do get up this way I would be glad to show you around. Joe

    Thanks for the kind comments - I'd say I got "my eye" by emulating people such as yourself.
