    How many lens threads can I make in a span of 7 days?

    I love my tamron 28-75 but I want something sharper. Seems like the L is my best bet. I found a used 28-70 that I can get for 650-700.. Is it worth it to just grab that or am I better off waiting for a used 24-70? I've got a 24 2.8 prime by teh way.

    I read an article that compared the two lenses a while ago, sorry cant find it now. It basically said the 28-70 isnt as sharp, but it is still sharp if that makes cents. For the price I think thats a pretty good deal.

    Chick just emailed me:

    Hi nicholas,

    I went back home and realized that we had not agreed on including the hood with the sale of the lens in our emails when we agreed on the price.

    Even in my ad there is no photo or mention of the hood. Usually in private sales that is negotiable.

    I'm sorry but I will have to keep it as I had to actually purchase it for myself.

    But you can get it at Samy's camera or other camera stores for 20 or 30 bucks.

    Good luck on your photography work!

    only if you plan on using it for more than shooting yourself out of focus

    I thought all L lenses came with hoods..? shouldn't that have been assumed, then?

    tell her she's a whore and since it came with a hood originally, you're gonna need it.
