    1) The seal biting the pole is great, of course.
    2) Seeing shit like this makes me giggle every time I hear about how anal some people are with their gear.

    Love the seal bite.

    about #2...thats usually hobbyists or privateers who paid through their nose to gather up their 10-15K worth of gear...and 1/2 of them are hiding it from their wives.

    Each lens is like the Hope diamond, and every little fleck of dust is as freakworthy as if you fired a massive snot rocket into a Nasa clean room.


    Any time I've worked with pros, or people who actually shoot for $$, they treat their gear only slightly better than most ppl treat a rental car.

    Like no one purposely drives into a lamp post, or throws it into forward while you're still moving in reverse....but hey, sometimes you're in a hurry... :dunno:

    I finally gave up on using UV filters. I have an old 50/1.4 from my Dad that has two dead ants inside it and youd never know it from the IQ of the lens.
