    I have just bidded on one on ebay... $125AU. I checked out an Australian retailer and theirs are $161. Not a lot cheaper, but still good. (And there are no bids, ends in 2days)


    I found out I have lots of work next week, and two days are public holidays, so I will have lots of money. I know I should be saving all my money to pay to go to TAFE, but hey... I want a new lens.

    hehehe.

    I like a band called invertigo - they actually broke up 3 years ago now though. But I am still obsessed...


    so therefore - I am an invertigo freak. Also, freak is a silverchair song. I also like silverchair.

    For an early Christmas gift, I got a 50mm f/1.4. Love it.

    Great to here that you got a 50mm as well, it is an excellent purchase, and lots of fun to use.
