Many members have bought photographic gear for Christmas, and I just did my fair share. I know the existence of it. I know what it's designed for. I know it's a classic. But I never thought of buying one, until a few days ago... A friend has a warehouse full of photographic gears, many brands, old and new. Last week after a few drinks, he said casually, "I have something that you may be interested in. It's a Noct, new in box." Maybe it's the holiday mood, maybe it's the scotch, I found it's an offer that I couldn't refuse. Received it yesterday and ran out tonight to take a few shots (would like to do it last night but traffic was a complete standstill because of the WTO protest). As Beezle said - am I worthy of it? Who cares. Now, don't ask me how much I paid for it, and how am I going to explain to the CFO when she sees the bank statement.
