    Kick ass lens. There is a reason it is the workhorse of the Canon lineup. Very similar to f/4.0 in sharpness and contrast, but an f/2.8.

    I'll try, but it sounds low. (If you're asking and can't come up with the same number twice.)

    Guitar collecting/playing, autographed/game used baseballs, old school video games (NES), bobbleheads, and keeping Dell afloat. ()
    Sooo, 4? Well, that doesn't sound right.

    Scale model aircraft, antique camera collecting, hockey memorabilia, music memorabilia, etc etc etc...

    I really need to gather a bunch of this crap up and put it on eBay.

    Hah @ "keeping Dell afloat." That rig is paid off as of next month!!

    Bad news for me, guys. My wife left me. Said she didn't think there was any room left in my life for her. Can't for the life of me see why she'd feel that way...









    (no, she didn't actually leave me...)

    Hey would any of youz guyz that has teh camerz be interested in doing a little LGK DSLR THREAD fun-photo project? I was thinking like every month we could declare something new and interesting to be our photographic subjects. You know, something different to get our learning curves to start on the upward climb again? The subject could be a color or a shape or something else even more creative than that and our eyes could sort of be our guides to show each other the different creative possibilities. You know, "green," or "old/young," or "circles," or "hands," or something simple like that?

    We could throw out ideas and then decide in the last week of the month what the following month's subject or exercise would be. Rules could be set like:

    1) The "subject" has to be accessible to everyone,
    2) The project can't require the use of special equipment or techniques, though you can use what you've got in your gear collection or bag of tricks,
    3) Participants have to submit a minimum of 24 of your best captures,
    4) Participants have to be open to other participant's constructive criticism, technical, and artistic advice,

    I could create a private group on flickr.com where everyone can upload their images for everyone else to see and comment on.

    What do you all think? I think it'd be a great way to develop our photographer's eye and hone our technical skills a bit and maybe provide some good pictures for our portfolios! 24 good captures could be gotten in just a couple of days of carrying your camera around with you! I'm open to to discussion of ideas for ground rules and subject matter!

    That's just not fair, Glenn! I only have a P&S! I need to get me a DSLR. (You'll be happy to know that after reading a bunch, I'm now leaning towards a D80)

    P.S. Great idea by the way.

    Can outsiders (thouse without cameras) observe and judge?

    If we do it, I don't see why PNS'ers should have to sit on the sidelines.

    So do you have any ideas on potential subject material or ground rules?
