    This topic is brought up once in a while in every photo film forum. Just google "lens" + "radioacitive" and there will find several links regarding it.

    I own one radioactive lens, it's such a great lens that at my age I'm not worried, in the final analysis we all have to die of something

    No I'm still very much alive and pretty fit David. I don't drink, don't smoke, don't do drugs, so even if I don't live to be 100, it will just damned seem like it

    you just need a moth larva antidote, it works well as a tea
    and counteracts both poorly advised chemotherapy as well as the selenium.

    Wear a lead shield to protect your Brazil nuts when using Thorium lenses. When they're exposed, they can shrivel up in the sun.

    I am beginning to resent being referred to as 'half-fast'.
    Whatever that's supposed to mean.
