Lust Temporarily Satisfied--NOT!!

Discussion in 'Lens Lust' started by Gunnerisac, Apr 25, 2007.

  1. I know I should say "finally satisfied" after a 200-400 VR/ Wimberley combo, but lens lust never ends -- Its incurable.

    Here my latest satiation (neologism):

    Here's a terrible shot I took handheld while we had rwo seconds of sunshine --Got to get out this weekend and put it to work. I am only including this shot because this fiend has been working my painting my pool house and fences. Very skittish bird to boot.

    Pretty amazing that three of us got the lens right around the same time. Brian, Paul and me. :biggrin: :biggrin:
  6. Whoa! That's an awesome rig, Paul! I've seen serious birders with similar rigs at Baylands Preserve.

    What strikes me is that your lens hood costs more than some of my lenses - lol! Congratulations, and make good use of that sweet glass!
  7. If you, Gadget Guy and I ever get together (he's got one too + a 200 mmf2.8 VR) we can share it. It is wonderful and BIG!


  8. Yes -- I wonder how many there are on the Cafe roster?

  9. Said I'd never do it -- no cost justification, no rationale, but then guys like you addicted me to lens lust :biggrin:

    Thanks Frank,


  10. Thanks -- I don't think I'll be carrying it on a 20 mile hike, however!

  11. Is it just me, are or there more of these lenses appearing in the hands of members around here lately??? Please STOP! :biggrin: Seriously, that looks like some wicked fun... enjoy.
  12. Yes -- It's the flavor of the month! Sereiously, after you get a 70-200 VR, its a logical next step. And I must say a magical lens.

    I know of 4 that were acquired in the past two weeks.

  13. The next logical step... yeah, I'll use that line on my wife and see how far I get... I think the doghouse would be the next logical step in her mind! :biggrin:
