Ok, will have to look into that, think the wife and I will enjoy that movie. Funny thing, the wife met Clooney on a flight once.

What to hear something interesting.

If you hit the high status mile level at Lufthansa, you can book tours of their operation area. get to see the techik department, training centers, and get guided tours of airplane in their fleet. At the who time getting first class treatment with wine and champagne and caviar. Also you get a discount on fly their vintage airplane iron anne. A world war II era junkers tri engine plane.

Default Finally decided to open it up before I wrapped it.

Okay, I decided to wrap the wife's present today and decided to check it out.. And I am totally impress with canon international. For a lens that I picked up in japan, that comes with an international warranty. It also came with the canon hood and pouch. No nickel an dime like canon USA. That charges you for each item. I should fly to japan more often.

Here is test shot I took, with the ef 100mm 2.8 before I wrapped it up.

not bad for 42,500 yens, and I did not factor in the Vat refund I filled out at the airport. It was a very good deal.
