    It's very quiet around here in the last week. I hope people are busy with work or getting out and shooting some pictures. I'm finishing up with a pile of paperwork and would like to get away from the computer myself.

    IF I had to guess, (besides that most members have a life outside of photo forums :)) I'd say what Jonathan F2 did maybe has something to do with it. But don't listen to me. I am mostly wrong about most things.

    well you know its more like f1.2 in reality right?

    I wish there would be more f1.2 lenses ... that would really make my choice of moving to m43 happier. I wouldn't actually buy any of those lenses because of course I couldn't justify it ... but the makers really should make them. Just so I can drool. You know, like a f1.2 constant aperture 12-50 lens with 7 axis stability.

    That would keep me in m43 and I wouldn't be always on about "leaving"

    Yeah having real f1.2 would make me a better photographer.

    A 7-140 with 8 axis stability would easily beat a 12-50 with only 7 axis lol

    Panasonic needs to pick a color for their pro lenses. Olympus gets blue, Canon gets red, and Nikon gets gold. How am I supposed to capture the decisive moment when I don't feel like the lens is an extension of my worth as a human being??
