LBA has got the better of me again & I've added a FF 18-28 to my collection. Foolishly I then left the screen on my E-bay purchases (including hidden items) & my Wife browsed my history :oops: :$

I think she's going on a spending spree now.

So, I thought I was done. I really did. After a few years acquiring Nikon dslr's (850 and 810) and various high end lenses, i truly felt happy with my setup. I still do.

So, why the hell am I getting ever closer to deciding to buy a Z6II mirrorless? Arggh.

Until I could get back courtside, I kept wanting an R5 - fortunately, there were none in stock - so perhaps this GAS is a Covid thing. Try going out for walks with a lens you don't use very much for a while. Worked for me earlier in the first lockdown.

I had a kind of epiphany last night while taking a wee (I have my best ideas with my hands on .... lol ), anyway, I realise all my life I like hobbies where there is some product at the end of it. I have always loved Lego, and I don't smash it up once built. My first degree was in Architecture, I like the satisfaction of building something, I did Law as a detour in my life, there is a product in that career but not as tangible. I take wedding photos, I love taking photos and during lockdown, at the start I would have thought I would spend all the time playing computer games but in actual fact I did none of that. In fact, I am not bothered about computer games to the point I never even bothered pre-ordering any of the new consoles. Instead I bought a new Guitar, new Amp over the lockdown. The other thing I have leaned on is cooking, making lots of things I have missed from my travel to eat at home. Right now I am thinking getting a Synth to make random sounds, again GAS for things to make things.

Insight always deserves a reward in my book. Have at it!

I appear to have dipped my toe into the 100mm square filter pond - a K&F concept soft ND 0.9 grad & holder...

If the performance of the filter is as impressive as the packaging, I'll be a happy bunny. Just need to be "not at work" when it's daylight now

I'm working on the basis of a soft, hard & reverse grad at the moment... I can be strong, I know I can, just this last one and I'll stop :cool:

I am going to bet that more than one strength of each category will be on the cards soon...

As it should be, a natural progression

Gas strikes again :( purchased a number of Nikon/Fuji books and mags also purchased my first PC lens Nikon 28mm f2.8 and a Yashica J Reflex 35 with a 5 cm f1:2 lens I have been looking for this lens for a number of years so pleased to be able to add to my collection.
And today I should be getting my Ensign 820 medium format 6x6-6x9 folding film camera that's if Royal Mail can deliver on time ??

... and would that be a 10 stop, or a 6, maybe a 3 as well, just in case? :exit: :ROFLMAO:
Don't forget the 15 for those bright sunny days. :cool:
I already have a 6, 12 & 16 in rounds of suitable diameter - 3 seems hardly either bothering with - just use the 6 & increase the ISO by 3 stops (I tend to always be in the 50-200 range - so 3 stops only takes me to 1600)
