I would not use USPS right now. I was sent a check by express mail. It's lost somewhere. My daughters college books failed to arrive on time. I got a letter a few days ago with an RSVP in December. I don't know what's going on, but USPS is broken right now.

What's going on is the new boss of the USPS was told to get costs in line and he's cut OT. The result is the blue flu.

I bought and received a Sony AF 20mm f1.8 G lens for my FF system, $795 with 2 day delivery and tax by dealer, and will sell the Tamron 17-28 f2.8 zoom. This lens has been out for about 8 months and all reviews say it is sharp as all heck, even in the corners, relatively lightweight and about the size/weight of one of the Olympus Pro f1.2 lenses, it takes the same 67mm filter as 3 of my others Sony/Zeiss lenses. This is lens that I wish was made by Olympus/OMD Solutions for M4/3 (10mm for M4/3). Don't know why Olympus never made a sharp 10mm semi fast rectilinear lens, as many have asked for it.

Whilst I quite liked the Nokton 35-1.4, I was never really happy with it. It wide-open 'glow' was really just plain darn soft, and didn't really start to sing until f4. Picked up this tiny Ultron 35 as a replacement - a lens which is causing a bit of stir in rangefinder circles...

I picked up an extra battery for my Panasonic G85 this week. Saving up to buy the Panasonic 100-300.

Man, that M240 is a pretty camera... Interested to see some more samples of this lens and how much it compares to the Skopar 35 2.5, which is what I'm shooting with. Probably sharper, but I can hardly find anything wrong with the Skopar.

Nice choice re the Skopar - I've never used one, but have it on good authority (Matt Osborne being one) that it's a bit special. I'm tempted by the 21 f4 - not only does it appear to perform well, it's not expensive and it's utterly beautiful - and tiny.

Just off for a photo-walk down to our local woods in the morning sunshine with the 240 and Ultron. I'll post up in 'FF' thread the results. :)

2 eyecups for my EM5 mkII. Worst design ever. The fall off all the time. I think I have lost 2 or 3 all ready. Usually when I take camara off the bag.
