Do you see lenses when you check the time?
« on: February 17, 2013, 06:50:36 AM »
Hi,

sometimes (maybe after looking on lens offers too much), when I check what time it is and I look at the numbers it reminds me of a lens, e.g., I looked at my phone and saw 17:55 so I thought of my EF-S 17-55mm... (quarter hour ago it was the 17-40mm WA zoom I want and an hour later it was my first 18-55mm kit lens) 

Anybody else crazy in this way? (and how about after you read about it? :) )

By the way, I guess most of you use the 12h am/pm time so would only see UWA zooms like the sigma 8-16mm or canon 8-15mm, right?

This made me laugh - thanks.

I haven't noticed it up to now but I'm sure I'll be seeing these numbers everywhere :)

I thought it was only me!

This happens multiple times a day :P The past week I keep seeing 14:24 and 16:35, makes me think my mind's trying to tell me to get an UWA ;)

I think that is time expressed in four digit number based on 24h time reference... eg 6pm is (18:00 for most of European and other countries anyway) 1800 in military time... I think it saves some time, but mostly eliminates some misunderstanding (6am would be 0600)

This is turning a bit into a Who lives in US and who in EU thread :)
