You will LOVE that lens! It may be kinda big and heavy, but I've never had a lens that captured images with the punch that one has.

Freudian slip on my part:-). In the tears ahead. I do hate to part with money.

I'm looking forward to gettin the lens here and it will be next weekend before I get much of a chance to use it. I'm sure it will get alot of use in the years ahead:G

Maybe line'em up, or bunched, on a piece of butcher paper and take a picture with the 35-100 would be nice.

....hi Ted!
I want to sell them, not show every blemish:evil:

In reality, I need to get them out and look them over. They all have had UV filters and the short focal lenses don't have much use. I'm a tele kind of a person. I think they should be a very decent bunch. I'll use my old lens pen and get them dusted off and I should do fine.

Its partially your fault for your display of pics fromyour 35-100, and part Zig's for supplying the link (even though I saw it before he posted, but I have to blame someone:-)) but it looks like a done deal.


Hey Greg,

Congrats on getting your lust for anew lens quenched (at least for now). And I'm only too happy to have helped in a small way. :?

Geez Louise, I'm looking forward to see your first post using that lens!!

BTW, Not sure if anyone has noticed, but B&H has already posted the E620 on their websiite. They are taking orders now, even though it's not due 'til May. I guess they anticipate a pretty good run on the first cameras released.

Zig

Hi, Bob!

We're looking at a forecast of 6" - 10" of snow tonight. Maryland is getting to be like Wisconsin. (grin)

BTW, I should mention that the only issue I've had with that lens is that on the E3, if you are just inside of its close focusing distance (around 7' asI recall) it will give you a focus confirmation even though it shouldn't. That's not normally a problem for me but you should test it on your cam.

Thanks for that. I'm sure I'll snap a few inside that limit until I get used to it. Do you still have that lens?

No snow in Wiskeyconsin. Just cold. It was 9F this morning and is supposed to be 4F overnight.

That, and I had to walk 2 miles to school when I was a kid and it was uphill both ways

Oh yeah - it's the best lens I have ever owned, including a few old Leicas. i believe Harj would agree.
