    ... to put things OUT of focus? 50mm f/1.4, 85mm f1.4, 200mm f/2.0, 400mm f/2.8 etc.

    Just a random thought :biggrin:

    My wife tries to put me out of focus when she sees a new expensive lens...:biggrin:
     
  3. LOL! True....but FUN!
     
  4. yeah...
    i get plenty of that at my house, as well... :redface:
     
  5. That way we can go to our "minister of finance" and say "Look at how poorly this piece of Cr%$p focuses. I sure could use a better lens!"
     
  6. Pete, we're all very sick puppies.......

    50 f/1.4 is a cheap fix to an expensive addiction! So far it's my gateway drug :biggrin:

  14. Nute's had several pm's from me with the title "I blame you", LOL! So yes, I'll join in the blame game. :biggrin:
     
  15. That's the reason why a PC-E lens is high on my shopping list :biggrin:
