Default Check out the B&H Used Equipment

There are a number of 4/3 and 4/3 lenses and cameras, used or refurbished. (I bought 2 of my 3 SHG lenses used from them.) I definitely think one of you rich boys should snap up the 90-250 f/2.8.

The "Used Store" hyperlink is in the green banner near the top of the web page.

The 90-250 f/2.8. I'm too frightened to look...

Good thinking on your part. I peeked and it was worse than I had expected.

...........I about to ask him if he would trade for a couple dozen Zuiko 90-250 f/2.8, then thought 'probably not' so I thanked him for allowing me to photograph the car and he left while I just stood there enjoying the sound.

BTW, these images are straight from the E-P3, shot RAW and converted, no PP tweakilng but for some cropping. In case of interest there are a few more images here ===> http://tinyurl.com/7jszs39

Looks like the car has an carbon fibre wrap on it, looks very nice on it.
Seems european cars are loved in the States.

....hi Lordje, yes, the car does have carbon fibre side panels. It is a beautiful machine, probably near 120,000 USD. I am happy I saw it today.

A question for you Lordje, more than 40-yrs ago when I was racing motorcycle motocross in California, USA I met a fellow from Belgium on several occasions who became 6-times MX 250cc world champion. His name is Joel Robert, Joel became my all time motocross hero and to this day he has never been bested but by Stefan Everts also of Belgium, then too of course is Roger DeCoster referred to as 'the MAN' at 5-times 500cc world champion. I also met Roger on several occasions.... Do you, Lordje, know of these men from Belgium?

Please pardon me for not direct messaging this 'just curious' inquiry.

Ah, Bob, what a car. I don't envy many people but I do envy R8 owners. Great photos - thanks for posting them.

A couple of years ago I was stopped at a red light next to one of my other favorite cars, a 911 Cabriolet, It was a gorgeous morning and he (rather young for owning a car that expensive) had the top down. I remarked that it was a really beautiful car and he smiled and said, "Yeah, it is, but it's just a car."
