    So, I went pawn shopping a few days ago, just looking for some neat old gear. While sorting through the camera gear, I stumbled across a lens. It was a 400mm Bushnell f/6.3. About 15-20 years old, and in PRINSTINE condition. I don't have a telephoto over 200mm, so I thought I should ask them what it was worth. They wanted $40 for it. It's a done deal. I bought it. The cool part is, 400mm on a DSLR is more like 600mm, and with my 2x TeleConverter, it's actually approx. 1200mm. FOR $40!

    Moral of the story: Go Pawn Shopping!!:mrgreen:

    Heh, It's pouring rain here right now, but I can post some test images if you like. Keep your eyes open in the galleries for some real pics in the near future. Thanks!
