    Oh! I though you had the 24-70 already??

    Now you need the 17-35mm too... and you're done!
    (I bet you were expecting me to say the 14-24mm huh? )

    Becc!!?? .. sleep?.. whadda'ya mean sleep? I still haven't looked at my photos for the day.. I'm just about to start on my third coffee.
    I ended up in Marysville, where there are no places to purchase new gear
    (had to place a token reference to new gear in here somehere, lest the OT police shoot me down for contempt! )
    I think I took about three photos before I realised it was just to dark(an dthat I need some more new gear!).... and you think I can sleep?.... yet?

    haha....i wouldn't mind the 14-24 =p
    But to be honest, I don't have a use for it at the moment. Sure it'd be nice for the occasional landscape....but I hardly take enough to justify the costs.

    Well I kinda did have the 24-70...and kinda not. I had it on order, but the place took over a month. After waiting the month, I cancelled the order...spent an extra $100 and bought it. I needed it before I go away and can't really wait any longer!

    Very nice Scroop, are those white specs on the table dust bunnies that fell out of it, or high ISO grain

    An honest C+C please!

    I think he loves me.

    Don't tell me that!! From what I see of your images Roofy, they look good on my screen too!

    I think that means that I also need a new 22" monitor!

    Nope, minimum 30" for you, 10mm lenses need wider.

    Nikon, Fuji, Nikkor, Sigma, Tamron, Tokina and too many other bits and pieces to list.

    Congratulations, James.
    I have been tossing up whether to shell out the $ for this lens so I would love to hear and see how you get on with it.
    Where did you end up buying it, I have been thinking about getting it through Photobuff in Melbourne.



    Cheers, Lani.
