My name is Kyle, I (currently) live in St Louis, MO. Easy 'nough.

it'll be interesting to see who produces the first FF mirrorless with interchangeable lenses
EF 0.625x converter for APS-C cameras (keep the original angle of view of EF lenses on crop sensors and gain 1-1.33 stops of light)
... I think an EF 70-200 2.8 IS ll should be a great way to pump some more money into the economy through B&H.It's our civic duty. Yeah ... that's the angle I'll take in my request for discretionary spending.
Does part of the down payment on a new vehicle count as 'fun'? I suppose not, but then, I fund all my gear purchases from 'on the side' consulting work - the day job income (and taxes refunded from that) go toward the important stuff - house, cars, kids' college and retirement funds, etc.
What the hell type of moonlighting does a neuroscientist do??? LOL
Sorry, but it's not a loophole. In pretty much every state that charges Sales Tax, there's an equivalent Use Tax that applies to goods purchased out of state for use in the state where you reside. The buyer is responsible for paying that tax to their state government. A loophole is a technicality or ambiguity that allows you to avoid the spirit of a law while obeying the letter of that law. Not paying Use Tax on internet purchases is flat out tax evasion. Much like driving 10 mph over the posted speed limit, it's unlikely you'll ever be caught/penalized...but it's still against the law.
Sorry for the pedantic comment, but the bokeh of the 1.8 is pentagonal (five-sided), not hexagonal (six-sided).
No, thanks! I can't make the edit myself though, so I'll just sound more like a tool.
One of my long time curiosities with the lens was will I upgrade from my 1.4? After 2 weeks with the 1.2 the answer is no - but I did *like* using it more than I do my 1.4, and maybe that counts for something?
Well, it's not exactly the same, but I had decided I wouldn't buy another lens for quite some time, but saw a a 70-200 f2.8 L for $360 and just bought it, who would pass?Where exactly did you find that deal? I'd cal that a "once in a lifetime" find.
I've been considering getting XS Pro's for all my lenses. Currently they're all exposed. The XS Pro was the only was I was considering for my UWA since the slim is not compatible with normal caps. I might go for a slim CPL, since it will only be on the lens when in use. Unfortunely, a good 77mm filter (UV or CPL) will be considerably more expensive than what I paid for my 19-35mm.I buy online and order what I planned to order when the price is right.
I usually buy in the shop my lenses. But, I got a good deal online, so first time order online. A bit of a gamble not being able to check the lens as you can do that when buying in the shop.
So today my 16-35 f/2.8 MK II arrived
I also got a B+W slim filter for it. Weird experience with this slim filter (is a first too) The lenscap cannot be attached to protect the filter
That's a first too. With my other regular B+W UV filters on other lenses this is not a problem.
Is this something common with slim filters?
The B+W XS Pro series are slim, plus it supports the lens cap. All my filters are XS Pro and the caps fit quite well for a ultra slim profile, never had any problems with it. You may want to get them for your UWA lens
