I just bought a... (non clothing item) - Page 208

Two 2T hard drives and a device (cannot remember the brand name) you can slot them into/out of to connect them to a computer via usb.

Cannot have enough back-up space, eh?

Yes. I find the focus isn't as fast as I'd like but the lighting is good. If they made a 1.4 for the DX I would have opted for that.

Yes, but I imagine the price premium would be pretty hefty! For one stop more I doubt if I would jump. May I ask why you shoot so fast? I do, too -- usually for subject isolation, portraiture or lowlight work, so I am always looking for fast glass. My favorite and most-used lens is a 58mm f1.2 Noct-Nikkor which is just incredible. I probably will get the 50/1.8, too -- it's just so cheap, and AF is really nice -- most of my lenses are MF. ~H

Now I'm just going to have to find a computer with Win98SE so I can play it properly.

A six movie admission pass to the Seattle International Film Festival, plus a four movie "Secret Screening" pass. I'll be watching a Japanese steampunk/superhero/adventure movie, A Japanese food movie/comedy, a Chinese Drama/Epic about the rape of Nanking, A Belgian Erotic/Horror/Thriller, a Taiwanese Romantic Comedy, and a French Neo Noir/Detective thriller starring Gerard Depardiu! I don't know what the secret movies are going to be, and before I find out, I have to sign an NDA. So I can't tell you.

My Lenovo U350 13" laptop just came in recently. It's just about the perfect size for a mobile laptop. I get a solid 7+ hours of battery out of it with wifi on. Other than the fan being a little louder than other Lenovo/IBM laptops I've used, I really like this one. I got the one with the brown cover, which makes it a little less boring than the typical fare from Lenovo. Highly recommend this for someone looking for a midrange laptop.

Great older lens. I have a soft spot for older solid, heavy, metal beauties. I appreciate the lightweight nature of the DX, but the gravitas of an old quality lens is unbeatable.

Re: my comment -- I have found the focus on this lens to be slower than some of my DX zooms. My observation is more a point of comparison in AF mode, than the nature of the lens independently judged. The need to shoot fast appears mostly in portraiture candids, children relatives (who are always on the move and changing expressions), and wanting to bracket focal points.
