    If we're just going to keep replacing an AWOL piece of glass, let's just agree to do a "Day in the Life of..." set instead.

    So do we do if the lens is awol and never return ? Do we just let the project die? I really do wish people wouldnt take the lens for themselves. Then I guess we wait until it show up again.

    This is pretty much how the first lens ended up.

    I think an address should be posted of who has the lens so maybe someone near can politely go ask for it

    yeah then someone will start complaining about invasion of privacy. Unless a rule is put into effect that says if you want the lens then cough up a address, in not then no lens for you. A fake address might be given by those thiefs.

    Lets not be so quick to speak so negatively on the person who has the lens, maybe they went out in the cold to get some pictures then got buried in an avalanche or something.

    Hey guys! Guess what...

    $IMG_20121117_151624.jpg

    After sending a massive amount of messages, I got an email a few weeks ago from the guy who had the lens saying they had received it, but quit the thread a long time ago (unbeknownst to me). That he doesn't really travel through TPF anymore. So, I asked him to kindly send me the lens and we'd deal with it from there. I never got a response, I never got tracking. I had no idea whether he had sent it out or not. But, now, a few weeks later, it's here! So, we're back on track! Thank you all for sticking around. I really do appreciate it. It's nice to see we have others who are just as passionate as I for the project. Sorry I haven't been around too much either, but I have been checking my inbox for you guys.

    Either way, I have it now! So, we're back on track.

    As a disclaimer, if anyone is ever disinterested, or wants to forfeit their turn with the lens, please just message me. We'll work it out to ensure it still gets around.

    Thank you all!
    Mark
