    Bad Attack of GAS
    Hoping a few days without taking pictures will cure it.

    I stopped by a friend's house to work with him on a bit of editing on his Cuba pictures and go to lunch. He had his camera equipment laid out on a sofa in his office for checking on batteries, etc. (We are going to Iceland next week.)

    Besides a Nikon array he has 3 sony bodies ( 2 FF) and four lenses. His new acquisitions are the 28 and 85 Zeiss Otus lenses. What jewels these are, exquisite feel to focus ring, digital DOF gauge. Altho he has been my best friend for years, there was a temptation to give him a sharp rap on the head with a nearby tripod and take the lenses.

    He is bringing them along to Iceland.

    (Under my breath, I am repeating 'they are heavy' every 20 seconds until I convince myself.)

    An 85mm Zeiss sounds like it would be a pretty sweet addition to the tickle-trunk to me!

    Hmmm, I am afraid your friend is not coming back from Iceland, there are some really dangerous terrains over there...
    In the meantime to keep your GAS at bay I can highly recommend a Tenba DNA Messenger bag for travel. I just bought one, very very good.
