Maybe, just maybe I'm still trying to justify the expense of that monster... to myself.

Now that I've done what I've done, I might as well try to wear it out.

.......the more photos you show us from the 300 w/EC20 the happier I get that you have it and this one really causes me to 'stare', looking at the detail. That photo detail is a bit 'insane' (as in beautiful) as I see it this morning.

I can relate, part of the reason I 'stared' so long at this photo is because this morning is the first time I've checked the forum with my new monster (27" MAC), I'm in the justification phase now for 2-days and trying to wear it out ASAP.

Hi Bob,

Congrats on your new IMAC 27". Talk about eye candy. That has to be the best screen I've ever seen!!

Meanwhile, I'm sitting here in the clubhouse at the condo complex we're staying in, viewing yet another amazing image from Greg on a puny IBM Lenovo 14" laptop. UGH!!!!!

Zig


P.S. I'm not going to mention the weather the entire time I'm here.

Our monitors in the office are quite awful when it comes to viewing image files so the big view for me will come tonight when I get home, but it definitely looks impressive enough using what I have right now.

Oh, come on, Zig! No need to hold out on the weather. You know you can't hold out. That's why you mentioned you weren't going to mention it!

........get him Greg, I know you are correct in that Zig only mentioned it for the reason he did.

So, since it is bright sunshine here for the rest of the week, FINALLY !

Zig, the 'pushover' to getting the M-27 was viewing some SmugMug files FULL SCREEN! That did it and I am after 2-days very comfortable with MAC. After 25 years with MSFT & a bit of UNIX & Linux, MAC is a welcomed experience, the video is just amazing as you know.

North-Greg's photo here is absolutely beautiful with color & detail, but after my MAC-Saturday the 300mm is now on my REALLY long list (hi hi)

.....WE are hoping you don't get bored with the weather there
