Rick, having watched your recent repair reports, I would easily assume that your technique has entered into a new and advanced phase!  Congrats!

Small correction: the open aperture value of the wide end of this zoom is f3.3, not the popular 3.5.   ;)

well, it's just that i am blurring my skin these days...reminds me of my days working in the Japanese porn industry in Ebisu :o :o :o

i find that its more professional not to have my hands in the photo so people will concentrate on the lenses rather than get distracted with my skin ::)
