    Rough time of it lately Jim. But there's a lotta luv going round on APUG at the moment too!

    Cheers, John.
    Thanks John. Very much appreciated. Yes at first I thought I would leave APUG and not look back. But that is not the case. Many loyal friends here. Perhaps even a silent majority?? In any case, more than deserved! Thanks. Jim

    If I can join in the circle here and add--from where I sit, Jim adds a lot more to APUG than lenses and shutters (even the 8x10 WA lens and the really big shutter I got from him). He adds a level of enthusiasm that is infectious.

    What a love fest we have going here. I couldn't agree more with everything that has been said. I only have three lens for my 4x5 and they ALL came from Jim. Whenever he has something to say I listen.

    I haven't bought anything from Jim, never been to one of his free workshops, nor do I really even know him... but I'm starting to become quite fond of him based on what I've read. That "luv'n feeling" is quite contagious!

    My Protar VII from Jim is a peach too. While Jim made the unpardonable sin of selling an original '29 Ford roadster, I say we let him live and sell us more lenses.

    He Really Knows the postal system, He was able to mail to me a Huge box for $5.40 cents and it was here in 2 days. Sick. I pay 12 bucks on large flat rate box the one he sent was 2 times the storage and he spent $5.40, Jim is very special and very smart man!

    I am jealous because I do not have the budget to buy his lenses right now.
    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    He must have quite a collection. How he ever uses them all is beyond me.
