empire23...
i wonder...
ur taste and mine is similar...
i m saving for a GT3530 + RRS BH-55 + RRS D3 L-bracket...
wise ppl do think alike! brows.gif

and u r a muslim?
i din know that!  tongue.gif

i m also saving up to get the entire ZF line up! brows.gif except the 50 1.4...
no more nikkors for me...

or maybe a hasselblad 503 CW + winder....
depends on which poisons stronger!

Hurr, i wan newer tripod setup as i start my foray into "stealth" strobing which involves hidden flashes to light up street shots remotely. Necessary evil, and my old 804RC head is getting extremely hard to setup due to the weight and the 3 way design.

Yesh, I am Muslim and it seems that Aussies think my name is awesome due to it's length. Mohd Syafiq Aizat bin Mohd Yusof Manan. My new Ostolia name is Syafiq A Yusof. Although they still get it wrong, calling me Syefiq, Fyefiq, Syarfeek and other wrongly understood names. It isn't too bad though, even my father can't spell my name anyways .

Haha, the only ZF i have is the 50mm 1.4, nearly all my close shots are done with 50mm. The lense is as sharp as knife and the details are seriously awesome. Also have the Summicron and L in my 50mm arsenal, probably will just get more 50mm lenses.

Me no go MF, i prefer SLRs for my general work and for my focus area i lean towards rangefinders. No hassies, leafs or fujis for me, unless someone finds a way to cram them into the size of a 5D or something tongue.gif

Be warn that Canon 100mm f2.8 macro is not an L lense. For first few years everything will go fine... until all your collection are L lenses, then you feel something missing from the macro lense. Nothing wrong with the image quality thought.... Just it is not L.... tongue.gif

in that case he'll have to go for the 180mm macro already smile.gif

I already eat grass few months ago after buying the 580exII and 50mm f/1.4, so no more new photogears for the rest of the year rclxms.gif
Will save up for a tele, either prime tele or 70200 f/2.8, laugh.gif dream dream

To most people surprise... I found the 180L to be hunting in low light! Camera used is 30D. Maybe due to f3.5 which is optimised for macro... maybe...

This is also one of the few Canon lenses that I have little experinces... Anyone mind to let me one to play? notworthy.gif

Grass is too expensive for me tongue.gif

I want a 70-200 f2.8, a D300 and a 10-20 or 11-16 lens. Just 10K plus altogether.

Eat air, not grass.

Update: Oops, forgot I want a 85mm f1.4 too.
