    Lens and view finder arrived while I was in the shower.... Had to sign for it dripping and towel-wrapped.

    This is a beautiful Lens!!!! It's perfect. In sync. And it fits in my mind's eye. It belongs with me... dunno how else to describe it. The 80mm was wrong for me, this 150mm is oh so Right!! BRILLIANT!

    Steady, Ed steady. You don't work for Fed Ex for obvious reasons. And this is one of them.


    Congratulations Karen,

    You really will like this lens and what it can do.

    Michael,

    Do you think that if I bought one of these lenses that it will give me an excuse to go to the door dripping wet to meet the Fed Ex guy. I get so lonely at times...

    Hell I don't even have a Hasselblad camera, but he won't know that.

    Donald, at the age that you advertise yourself, I think it is almost expected that you greet people that way occasionally. Besides if anyone objects you can just use the "absent minded" card.

    By the way, once you have stockpiled all that Hasselblad equipment feel free to send it to me.

    I was about to re-post my "Blind Man" story ... No need - it is still in the "Off Topic - Jokes" thread (page 3).

    I'm trying to think of a way to modify it ... instead of "blind Man" ... I'll substitute "Fed Ex Guy". Something like:

    Fed Ex Guy: "Here's your lens".

    Ka: "Oh, what the heck .... he has my lens ...."


    I wonder if Fed Ex needs someone who specializes in delivering lenses ... :roll:
    Carpe erratum!!

    I hope I'm not talking out of school here, but I'm sure a lot of people don't know this about Donald, but before he started taking all his great landscape pictures he did a lot of portraits.

    Once he had his subject positioned, and to get an "expressive" look on their faces, he would often step from behind the camera, whip open his trenchcoat, then hit the shutter and make an "exposure".

    This kind of gives a whole new meaning to the expression " did he use a flash in that picture". A very innovative man indeed.


    Apparently, just another of his many talents and tricks.
