    Oly vs Fuji vs Nikon prices - just for fun

    Even more important is the X axis linear. Probably need to use nonparametric stats or chart actual weights. 42 will probably be the right answer anyway which will explain a lot about the characteristics of the average reader of this website.

    Hummingbirds in flight except first one. Most of these are cropped to about one fourth. getting adequate depth of field was difficult if I got any closer as I had to keep the aperture open to get a high enough shutter speed. Male Costa's taken several years ago in Palm Springs. Panny...

    20 years ago I was sitting in my uncle's garden south of Colorado Springs CO when one landed on a nearby fence post and proceeded 'catch flies' for the next 10 minutes or so. Way north of its usual range. Where did you see this one?

    I think you have to go where the aged dying middle class outnumbers the young hipsters. Denver may not be the best choice based on that criterion

    Well I guess my answer to that will depend on whether I want competition or not. In fact I live in Gunnison (and it is still winterish here by the way). I go to Grand Junction regularly and snoop the thrift shops here, there and in between.

    Got some batteries for the Minolta X-700 and it fires up and seems to work fine. When I looked at the photo below I realized that It needed a good cleaning. I also noticed a little Brassing on the edge below the film advance but still worth $5.

    Well I've done it again. I found a Minolta X-700 in apparently immaculate condition with a 50mm f2.0 lens. The battery was dead so I couldn't test the camera function. They marked it down from $40 to $10. When I went to pay everything was half price so I got it for $5. Also nice bag, 2 rolls...

    Back at it today. Found a Fujinon EBC 55mm f1.8 at the thrift store for $8.13. Clean and in beautiful condition. It seems smaller than my other lenses of that length and also seems pretty sharp at 1.8. This may be a keeper.

    Picked up a hard case with Minolta 58mm f1.4, Mitakon 80-200mm f4.5, a 5 Star 500mm f8 bazooka and an asortment of filters. I paid $20 for the lot. I like the minolta, the 5Star will be fun to waste some time with.

    In May I dropped my GX7 and 100-300mm in a saltwater lagoon in Costa Rica. After drying them for a few days they both appeared to be toast. I brought them back and put them away. I was looking in the storage today and noticed them. The lens had lots of salt deposits inside and did not work. I...
