    :(

    Dropped out of my bag in class. Barrel is out of line now, it has resistance at odd places when going thru the zoom range. :wtc: i found a used 50mm 1.4 for 100$ at my local joint. Hopefully it will be in good shape, and fit. Stinkin camera is like 25yrs old.

    sounds like the perfect time to make the switch to a real body/lens system.

    :hsugh: yes, i want to toss a 20yr old camera to spend maybe $1000 on a new system when i only need it for specific purposes.


    I bought a new lens this morning 100$ at my local shop. :coold: went from the 50mm 1.8 on there to a 1.4. Woot!
    I can has fast aperture!
