... BTW, I'm a bit curious about your intriguing Avatar ... what does it mean? Cheers
Haha I can relate... love my lens line up but there's always an itch (note I've bought and sold many lenses before getting to my current line-up). +1 ... Nice to be acquainted with like minded suckers for new lenses (no offense)
Heheheh it's good to know there are more of us in the same boat.
Now for my next purchase.... let's see what I can justify (takes some effort)...
You're the first to ask, I'm glad somebody finally did
It's inspired by the periodic table of elements.
'Ca' is the symbol for the fictional element 'Canon EOS'.
'Canon EOS' is the name of the element.
'25' is the atomic number, which was the number of years EOS was around when I created the avatar.
'1987' is the year EOS was introduced. This would indicate the number of electrons in each shell: 1, 9, 8, 7 moving away from the core, so there are four shells of electrons.
'10.0837' is the atomic mass; it is also the founding date of Canon (10 August 1937) as Seikikōgaku kenkyūsho (jap. 精機光學研究所, Precision Optical Industry Co. Ltd.)
