Close only counts in horse-shoes and hand grenades.... :x I got up at 4:55am to check on an eBay auction for a new Nikon 12-24 that had had no bids for 3 days, starting at $750, the auction ending at 5:06am. The bidding didn't start until there was only a few minutes to go and I didn't think it was worth getting over $800. It went for $836 plus $25 shipping. Not to mention that I wasn't sure I had any use for that range! :?
