Default Your WANT List :D

Following on from John & Harriet's lustful glances at the 77 & 31.

What are the lenses you realistically (sometime in the next couple of years) 'need' to complete your collection. Need should not be taken too literally


My Current Desires
(and there is a weekly fluctuation to this that I make no apologies for) !

1. Something in the 17-70 range, prefer 2.8 constant but there are some nice lenses with 2.8-4.0 or 4.0 constant too. I keep checking out 17-50s / 24-70s / 28-70s / 28-80s and so on.

2. DA*60-250 (I have my eye on one over here for $600 - however after my pocket's recent exertions it may take some time to get there. I'm thinking of selling the 43 Ltd to fund it, a used 43 goes for ca. $800 over here) !

3. DA*300 - do I really need this if I have the 60-250 ?

4. I just have to add the K5 don't I now.

I've just won an AFA 1.7x and a Tamron 500 55BB on EBay so that helps slake this weeks LBA

I still want something wide angle, so probably one of the 10-22/10-24/etc lenses.

I decided to buy a multigym rather than the lens (I think I was drunk at the time) to buff myself up for all the walking/hiking I will be doing in Japan, and just for general fitness.

Let's see:

DA* 16-50mm f2.8

DA* 50-135mm f2.8

DA* 60-250mm f4

All three of the FA Limited lenses.

Realistically the DA* 60-250mm may be the most expensive of this bunch but is probably the one I could make the most use of. I will probably end up with a DA 50-200MM F4-5.6 ED WR and a KX or KR which would give me a decent WR lens for my K10D and a new body for my current lenses.

Here is what I have with me.

What ?! You don't have a set of stairs ? And a young boy who likes nothing better than being lifted onto his father's shoulders ? (and put down, and lifted, and put down and .......).

Looks like Xmas could be a very expensive time in the Ira household !

Yeah the nipper is at the "workout" weight at the moment (nearly 6 years old), but it's mostly for exercising in the night, I used to work out in the gym a lot (before mortgage/child/etc) and would prefer using a multigym as that's what I am used to. Well really I would have prefered buying the wide angle lens, but the mrs gave me a rather stern look when I told her how much it cost. She had no issue with me spending the same amount on a multigym though strangely...

I can understand her concerns Ash. Your during and after pics suggest you need a workout mate

Oooh you little tease, I can't see them from work!

Ah well will be home in an hour or so, will find out if I need to laugh or be offended (or maybe getting a restraining order)

Sorry to mention it here...but a FF Canon 5D Mk. 11, 17-40, 400 L...all Canon.

Yup two systems...no problem as I've run multi systems since about '81.
