    A salute to Jim Galli

    I came home from shopping with my wife this afternoon to find a box on my doorstep from Jim, a wonderful old 10" B&L Petzval! Jim, I don't know HOW you got it here so fast, but my hat is off to you sir!

    Some people are like Slinkies. They're really good for nothing, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

    Likewise, Jim sent me a pretty Fuji seemingly overnight even while he was away over Xmas. Hard to beat dealing with him.

    As good as his shipping is, his product, customer service and knowledge is better.

    Yes, I'll add my word for that lovely 240 mm G-Claron which arrived in Norway quickly, well-packed, and in great shape. Thanks Jim!

    Likewise from me - also in Norway. International shipping from him seems to go much faster than from others?

    Add me to the "We-Love-Jim-Galli" Club. I bought a 305 mm G-Claron from him which he mounted onto a lensboard for me and sent it out pronto. The lens is my new favorite and is soooooooo clean.

    Ditto with three lenses I have purchased from Jim. Used I go to Jim first rather than someplace I don't know the people. Jim I trust 100%! He's a damn fine person as well.

    Let me pile on here as well. Jim got me a nice shutter for a very reasonable amount for my 210 G Claron. I was fretting about having to spend a pile on a new one or a scratched lens on eBay. The shutter he got me even had the correct aperture scale and was all ready to go! Thanks Jim!

    Yeah - the only part about Jim that I don't like is that he won't share the location of his lens mine . He probably knows that I still have all my old gold mining gear standing by, ready to go for when he slips up .

    hehehehe
