I did it...

Discussion in 'Lens Lust' started by Panos Kazanelis, Jun 17, 2005.

  1. ...I know I shouldn't have carried with me the white envelope (full of cash), I shouldn't have made that childish excuse of "I need an extra rear lens cap", and I know I should be more careful using my digiCam at the beach... :?

    So, I went with all the above in my bag, to my local NIKON service depot for a CCD cleanup... 8)

    ...and there it was (the devil... :twisted: ) One was standing on the repairs table with a front element broken, one was there for service (?) another one was at the hands of well know (local) life-style photographer, and ANOTHER ONE was standing quietly at the corner asking for help... "Paaaanoooo, Paaanoooo, please get me out of here... please get me with you... please show the world..."

    So, now... my "little" new friend has found his everlasting peace in my bag... and tonite I'm going to show him the "real world"...

    It's party time for me and my new Nikkor AF-S DX 12-24mm f/4G ED-IF :lol: :wink:

    I am happy for you, Panos...and especially happy for the 12-24 that will now see the world through your eyes.

    And you went there thinking you just needed a rear lens cap...I'll have to remember that one :lol:

    I have a slow line up here in Michigan this summer but will still manage to spend the time 'waiting' for the download when I see any pictures you post using the new 12-24.

    Best to you,

    Congratulations Panos on your recent adoption of fine Nikkor glass. :D  You live in a beautiful country and I can't wait to see what you will have in store for us in upcoming images. :wink:
  4. Do you think it will be a good lens for spandex? :wink:
  5. Thanks Gaye, it sure ads a new perspective of viewing things... :D 

    I'll do my best... I have to learn his ...behavior though... :wink:

    Well Frank, I have launched a new technic called "up close" and the 12-24 is perfect for it ... 8)

    Nice. I am sure that lens loves you man.

    "Oh show us more!" ;) 

    Just what techniques do you employ for this 'closeup" technique? Flash, f/#, ISO, ethanol?

    I never regretted buying that lens.
