I got some good news and bad news about that Contax 120/f4 macro lens I ordered the other day. The bad news was, they thought they had one more in stock, but come to find out they didn't. The good news, though, is that the guy I talked to is friends with the former prez of Contax in Germany, and he happened to have a brand new one in a box, likely the last new one on the planet.

And it's comin' to Tennessee, baby!!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] Of course, it won't be here in time for my shoot next week (dangit!). Anyways, just wanted to share. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

I'm guessing that after he read about a buddy of mine making a desklamp out of one of those lenses, that he couldn't find his seat cushion for a while... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Congrats - sounds like you just used up your year's allotment of luck.

Let's see some of those razor-sharp images as soon as you can.

Funny how just thinking about something can have such physical reactions, but yes, it does. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Looks like it -- guess it's all downhill from here! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img] Wouldn't it just suck if I get the lens here, but the body screws up or something? Oh geez, I hope I didn't jynx myself... All the Contax stuff is shooting up in price... Seriously though, I can't wait to try this thing out. It oughtta be versatile, as a macro and a portrait lens, too. Man, as many times as I coulda used this lens... well, I felt limited with just an 80mm, so you should be seeing a lot more images taken with the Contax now. Er, um, in a few weeks.
