I hate this forum...

Discussion in 'Lens Lust' started by Joe Marques, Sep 28, 2008.

  1. I'm happily shooting away with my current gear and I am really quite content. Then recently a few jerks start threads about the 105 f2 DC. This lens is not even on my radar. So I'm bored and begin to read about it.

    Hmmm...very nice focal length for FX (love tight H&S shots). Hmmm...DC control and pretty bokeh and overall IQ - a superb portrait lens (which is my #1 thing). I want...no NEED one of those. :tongue:

    So tonight, because of the horrible people on this forum, I pulled the trigger on a used 105 f2 DC (LNIB at FM - good price). It'll be here in a few days.

    As I said at the top, I hate this forum. :wink: :tongue: :biggrin: :Love:

    Joe- Congratulations on your new lens; I have no doubt that you'll be making even more great images with this in your kit.
     
  3. Hey Rich, thanks buddy. :smile:
     
  4. Had no interest in the 200 f/2 VR...until I read about it here!
     
  5. Who doesn't hate this forum! I love it:biggrin::biggrin::biggrin:
     
  6. i have to agree, this forum prettymuch duped me into buying the most of the stuff in my signature, before this i was happy going along with my D200 and the Sig 30. now in the past 6 months i have added the D3, 24-70, 70-200, 35, 135, 17-35. The only holdover being the SB-800. d**n this forum. lol

  8. NOT TO BE POLITICAL...

    But.. sometimes this forum is the catalyst that starts my own personal economic crisis.
    .. so I know what all of you are saying.

    Congrats Joe. Let us know how it is. Can't wait to see some images. I bought a brand new 105 DC 2 weeks ago. Straight out of the box it was back focusing so bad that a fine tune in camera of +20 wasn't helping it. It has been at the Nikon Factory Center. I hope it's better when it comes back.

    Better investment than Mutual Funds or stocks lately....... too bad you can't have an IRA based on Nikon lenses.
     
  15. I am very sorry...
    :biggrin::biggrin::biggrin:
     
  16. Thanks for all the replies, I'll be sure to post a few shots once it arrives (shipping today).
     
  17. Joe,
    Do us all a favor and keep the photo's made with your new lens to yourself. :biggrin:

    I will not look, I will not look, I will not look.....well maybe a quick peek.:tongue:

    Seriously, I do hope you have fun with it!

    Any thread that starts with " I hate this forum" has got to be funny, and it is.

    Joe, welcome to the 105 f2 club. It'll be well worth it(I hope you get a sharp one), but I must admit that this forum has cost me a lot of dough.

    Congrats from a fellow "hater",
     
  19. Wish they can fine tune stock market as lens, no doubt Nikon will do a fine job, or if it dosn't work send it back for replacment/refund.
