I just bought a 120/4 Apo-Makro-Planar T* lens -- and as much as I searched for one, possibly the last new one in the country -- for my Contax 645 for almost three grand, and I'm slightly hyperventilating right now, as I've never paid that much for a lens before, but I'm guessing once I try this thing out, I'll forget all about it... I hope. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

P.S.: If you know where to get a new one for less than that, I DON'T want to hear about it. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img] (They were around two grand originally, I believe.)

Hell, if I'd have known you were looking for one of those, I'd have stopped my buddy from making a desklamp out of his.

I never kid about desktop illumination.

It's mission critical.

You'll be amazed at how your subject jumps off the paper (or screen) with that lens. You'll know what a "three dimensional look" means too.

Taken with the 120/4.

I dunno which is worse -- you having a whole box of these lenses, or you having a moth collection and a supply of lotion in the basement! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]

Hey Chip, thanks for confirming I made a good decision. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] I've heard the lens is nothing less than extraordinary. I can't wait to try it out when it gets here. Hopefully before next Thursday... I could use it for a shoot I have then. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
