MikeSeb: Your comments are offensive. You could have stated your opinion in a more civil manner.

Be advised that I have already cited a link for a test in regard to the relative harmfulness of the radiation in such lenses. The person who tested it found more radiation than what had been previously found (or assumed). After performing these tests, the person parted with his radioactive lenses. Once again, I choose to make no assumptions--especially since there are many fine lenses out there.

My position is certainly not irrational. It is better described as cautious. Camera equipment is not a necessity in life, and thus I prefer to err on the side of caution.

Your taking of the Lord's holy name in vain is also not appreciated.
