  5. OK Boomer, I got the Tokina 11-16 lens. Just getting started with it. I was down in Salida and shot a simple indoor photo to see how well it works. Yea boring subject matter but the lens did quite well. This entryway is very small and I was just a few feet inside. I even moved up a couple steps to avoid a bothersome cfl.

  6. I just tried that lens at a local shop. Very nice, really like how the atuo/manual focus ring works. Plan on buying it when my OT shows up on the next paycheck. I would like the latest version of the 11-16 as well.The new version corrects the chromatic aberrations and with improved coatings the flare,it also has a new quieter focus motor(not that I found it overly loud or annoying,with only 5mm of focus throw).The cherry picked old version which I have is about equal to the Zeiss Distagon 21/2.8 in corner to corner sharpness and distortion.The new version of the 11-16 which I haven't tr

    A little boy comes down to breakfast. Since they live on a farm, his mother asks if he had done his chores. "Not yet," said the little boy. His mother tells him no breakfast until he does his chores. Well, he's a little pissed off, so he goes to feed the chickens, and he kicks a chicken. He goes to feed the cows, and he kicks a cow. He goes to feed the pigs, and he kicks a pig. He goes back in for breakfast and his mother gives him a bowl of dry cereal. "How come I don't get any eggs and bacon? Why don't I have any milk in my cereal?" he asks. "Well," his mother says, "I saw yo
  9. Same little fall I shot earlier but this time at night.

    Working people frequently ask retired people what they do to make their days interesting. Well, for example, the other day, Kate, my wife and I went into town and visited a shop. When we came out, there was a cop writing out a parking ticket. We went up to him and I said, 'Come on, man, how about giving a senior citizen a break?' He ignored us and continued writing the ticket. I called him an "asshole" . He glared at me and started writing another ticket for having worn-out tires. So Kate called him a "shit head". He finished the second ticket and put it on the windshield wi

    The phone rings and the lady of the house answers, 'Hello.' 'Mrs. Sanders, please.' 'Speaking.' 'Mrs. Sanders, this is Dr Jones at Saint Agnes Laboratory. When your husband's doctor sent his biopsy to the lab last week, a biopsy from another Mr. Sanders arrived as well. We are uncertain which one belongs to your husband. Frankly, either way the results are not good.' 'What do you mean?' Mrs. Sanders asks nervously. 'Well, one specimen tested positive for Alzheimer's and the other tested positive for HIV. We can't tell which is which.' 'That's dreadful! Can

    A Catholic Priest, a Baptist Preacher and a Rabbi all served as Chaplains to the students of Northern Michigan University at Marquette in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. They would get together two or three times a week for coffee and to talk shop. One day, someone made the comment that preaching to people isn't really all that hard, a real challenge would be to preach to a bear. One thing led to another, and they decided to do an experiment. They would all go out into the woods, find a bear, preach to it, and attempt to convert it to their religion. Seven days later, they al
