    I will miss all of you. As of 6:15 p.m. last evening I committed to an act of delayed suicide. At that precise moment my finger hit check out button at B&H for a Canon 400mm f2.8L IS lens. It is due to arrive by Big Brown Friday.

    Never in my life has my wife ever opened a credit card statement that had a single charge of $7,000.00 on it for photographic gear. I have the cash put away to pay off the statement the moment it arrives, however I fear that I may not live long enough to tell her that.

    So if you see an estate sale on E-bay consisting of a lot of good, well cared for Canon gear by a wonderful blond woman, and you happen to buy a piece of that gear, think fondly of my as you use it. :D :mrgreen: :lmao:

    BUT UNTIL she sees the bill, I am going to be in shooting heaven. :mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen:

    A fitting demise that a photographer should get beaten to death with a lens by his neglected wife.

    I hope one day I may die on the battle fields with such valour. My good man I salute you! :salute:

    if the 400 2.8 is still working and sharp I'll take it - bloodspots might attract interesting wildlife!


    have fun!
