As someone who DID get through basic training, I see the smell of napalm in the morning.  :)

I thought I was the only one! Even just seeing numbers that link up to making a lens model.  A number i needed for school.. the first 4 digits were "2470" and well there you go! My favorite lens

Nope. You're nuts!

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?

.
To paraphrase a man who did not make it through military basic training with me:

My lenses don't tell military time, sir.

Whats military time?


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 :)

I know both since i came from Europe, just thought military time was the same and didn't know why they called it military time.

Have you thought about professional help with this? (just joking...)
Do you find yourself counting how many steps from the front door to the car?
Do you sell clocks for a living?
Are you a Numerologist?
...or all of the above?

Hah! This thread is a hoot!

What do you mean by "looking at lenses?"  I don't get it, you can't see the "17-55" in the viewfinder, are you staring at the front of your lens for long periods of time?  I do get what you're saying, it's like playing tetris too long and then you see the shapes in your head when you try to sleep.  I just can't figure out what part of a lens would be fun to stare at long enough for this phenomenon to occur.  The only one that seems reasonable is through the viewfinder, but you don't see "17-55" there.  Do you happen to experiment with hallucinogens?

But to answer your question, no I've never in my life seen the name of a lens on my watch.  I have seen files and folders in my head while trying to go to sleep after a long day of transferring files over and over.
