Jim & Click,

Thanks, the 109 is actually known as a Buchon and it's Spanish. That rascal Hitler sold 'em to Franco minus engines (ahh, what a gent, never buy a used car from a Nazi dictator, that's what I say). It wasn't until 1947 that we (the Brits) sold them Merlin engines to power them. It was weird to see a Spanish Buchon Bf109 painted in German colours (they had to get special permission to do so) and sounding like a Spitfire. I don't think there is an emoticon to describe all that.

Take care.

Beautiful picture... I would need extra underwear if I saw (and ear) that plane...

Focal length: the longer the better.
Exposure time: the shorter the better ~ 1/1000 sec.
I used my 300 f/4 L IS with the 5DII

The first one is amazing!

Sell everything except the 85mm 1.8, that lens is pretty good for portraits, and give you a little extra length vs the 24-70II,  I don't know what kind of events you take, but a fast zoom its super handy at weddings and events like that.

Never had a trouble with Adorama... even once they give me a $200 dlls gift card for price protection (Bough a $1999 85L and 3 weeks later it was at $1799).

I hope this is not the begining of "L addiction" :o

I count 5 "L" lenses in your signature...

you... my friend... are a L junkie  ;)

I'm asking because if you don't believe the deal is real, why give them a credit card number?
He bought it from Amazon... amazon protects you from scams and that kind of stuff...

Hi RickSpringfield

Here are some advice to achieve your goal

1. Choose your sharpest lens, I believe that it is 50mm @ F4 (check it at to find the best lens by resolution)
2. Find the lens "Sweet spot", generally is around F5.6 or F8
3. Focus manually with live view x 10
4. Use a remote shutter or 2-10 seconds shutter delay
5. Use mirror lockup to avoid vibrations
6. If you use external flashes, avoid flare
7. Use ISO 100 when possible

I went with a dual boot XP/Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit system. XP will allow me to still use some hardware and software that I have that is only comptatable with XP and 7 will allow me to go forward.
Congratulations ... Good choice. I like your tag line from Matrix "There is no spoon" ... I wish it was true for some of our problems in life :) ... BTW, if I remember correctly that line was said by the kid who was bending the spoon in part 1?

Spoon boy: Do not try and bend the spoon. That's impossible. Instead... only try to realize the truth.

Neo: What truth?

Spoon boy: There is no spoon.

Neo: There is no spoon?

Spoon boy: Then you'll see, that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself.

Fake chuck westfall... you dont need more...  ;)

16 Gigs will help you lot... 

But if you can... add a SSD, you will feel like you bought a faster computer  ;)

eneloop or eneloop xx (More power/less recharges)  ;)


First of all, I don't want to enter to the Mac vs PC, I use both (Day job, Game developer with PC, Night job App developer with Mac).

the Mac advantage is that everything will work at arrival, no problems... 27 inch beautiful screen, all ok...

the PC advantage is that 3500 dlls buy a MONSTER of pc, (think about a 2014/2015 mac release), and the best of all is that this computer will be upgradeable, and with the spare cash you can bought a video card to avoid the rendering times of the video.

I choose the PC way (16 gigs of ram + SSD its a dream), good luck  :)
