As I have posted here a few times I guess it's time to introduce myself. I apologize for the breach of etiquette. Others here have spoken fondly of photography as a "curse" or "affliction", and I must admit that's true! My disease began at around age 8, probably transmitted from a kindly neighbor who let me use his darkroom and didn't get mad even when I opened a fresh box of his 8x10 paper with the lights on! My first camera was a Zeiss Ikon Contina, purchased for $7 used. No rangefinder, meter nonfunctional, sharpest lens I've ever used. Sadly, this little gem also imparted to me my first physics lesson: camera + gravity + concrete + 8 yr old clumsiness = traumatic camera disassembly. I was heartbroken. Nevertheless, I kept taking pictures with anything I could find; the disease smoldered, relapsing and remitting, but never cured. Everyone knows that you can't make a living as a photographer (g), so I wound up in medicine, where you can make a very good living at a high cost to the soul. Just when I thought I'd completely shaken the silver intoxication, it returned. I have simply given up fighting it these last few years. I have tried all the remedies--Hanimex, Nikon, Kowa, Pearl River (!), Sinar, Contax 645, even--gasp!--D70. The film cameras get the most use. Must be the masochist in me. Even dusted off my F3, which I came within a hair's breadth of selling on eBay for a pittance. Back from the brink--the doc shakes his head and tosses the bullet into the pan like Doc on "Gunsmoke", the patient lives. Thanks for indulging this rambling intro.
