Only in America...

Where else in the world do you get a 10% off coupon, and $70 cash back with no taxes charged when you buy a Nikkor 135mm f/2 DC? Only in America! I still can't believe the deal I got from Adorama/Ebay! 

My eyesight hasn't exactly improved over the past couple of years, so it is high time to move on to AF lenses. I'm putting up my entire collection of MF lenses on the market. I'm not going blind, but for the accuracy required for manual focus glass my eyes aren't at their best. Granted we have been going pretty rough the past few, grad school, family, renovations, so my R&R time has been quite limited. The body can only take so much on so little rest. 

I'm sure my eyesight will improve, but I really need to scale back on some things. I've been so busy this year that I have yet to take a single picture of a bee! That's a near tragedy for my line of artistic work. I'll be out in the fields/gardens this weekend, and grad school and renovations can wait. About that 105 review...I'm going to do something different and just post the photos of the review and let others decide what they'll do with them. My time is better spent writing my novels for children than writing up some review of old lenses. 

Till my next rambling, review, or post, this is, hey, hey
