    I am currently sitting in New Hampshire on a really, really slow dial-up (SWA from Burbank to Manchester with stops here and there, great service as always, thanks to you and your coworkers) so a lot of the images are not loading (or not loading in under 2 hours) but the one that did was the B+W picture of the volute, that is beautiful! Nice capture.

I started shooting for LAist.com then became a regular contributor. I hit up a local bar and took pictures there, used them to get into the Warped tour and then sent those to Nine Inch Nails and just got accepted for a photo pass next Sunday. I feel that NIN is pretty much top tier so if I can shoot them I can shoot anyone.

    This is where the fun really begins.

    Oh yeah, I also got permission for the first time since the Kings moved to Staples Center to photograph live Kings games. This should be great for me, LGK and ultimately the Kings fans. At the end of one of those December posts of my wishes and goals I stated, \\"In a perfect world I should shoot Kings hockey\\". Looks like some dreams do come true.
    Mike, all of this is fantastic, congrats! That surely is living the dream. I will be very interested in hearing how the Staples shooting goes.

    That is very cool.

    OK, I have to cut this short, dial-up is killing me. Great work everybody! My news here is I booked my first wedding, I have shot numerous weddings before as a friend or a second, but this is going to be my first, a little nervous.

    At least this was an inexpensive lens when I bought it. I think I paid less than $150 for it on eBay when I bought my D100 like five years ago. It's a shame this thing tanked, because it is a REALLY light and compact lens. The problem now is that I don't have anything to put on the D200 for my wife to use, and I'm not keen on going out and buying a DX lens just to put it on the backup camera body.

    I wonder how much it would cost to repair it? Probably more than its worth. Might be fun just to yank it all apart, too. I could do a photoblog about it!
    I just got my answer, and it's $255 including shipping. They're calling it a "C Service Repair Rank C" and are saying that they think it is sand damage. That's strange, because it's never been anywhere near the beach.

    ****.

    They're not made anymore, and that sucks because this is one of the smallest 200mm zooms made. It's a good do-everything lens and they were pretty popular...and still are according to two eBay auctions where they are going for $300+. I'd intended to repair it and keep using it on the D200, but I imagine there are more versatile lenses for that DX format body (like the 18-200 VR).

    I'm gonna have to sleep on this one.

    Wow. Sorry to hear that. I had a 105 Micro which I really loved, (smaller than the current model) and is also not made anymore. I sent it in to repair a cracked aperture ring. First they charged me for it, then sent it back still broken with a note saying parts no longer available. They refunded the charges of course but I was disappointed. I have thought about sending it to a non-factory repair shop that might have old parts, but need some leads first.

    Does anyone know any good independent repair shops that might have parts for older lenses on hand?

    That's truly an awesome shot. The only nit I can pick is that perhaps I would make the silhouette completely black, with just that splash of yellow on the right side.
