    Hank, indeed SOMETIMES older is better... i assume in former times manufacturers paid more attention to quality. I have some old tech as well and i will never ever trade it for anything new. my old high-end music center gives such a crystal clear and rich sound that no crappy surround can. and i notice old things break less than new ones. i have old VCR in my daughter room and that works for a whopping 12 years now without a glitch... i have high end VCR with LCD display and stereo sound which was expensive and it does not work that well after just 6 years... go figure what manufacturers think about quality.

    But your shot is about YOU and your eye in first place, not the gear.

    Probably not a real farmer. You don't work a plough all day with your bare hands. Nice shot though.

    I know him, he is a farmer. This was a plowing contest and he only had to plow 6 or 8 rows. You're absolutely right though, you wouldn't do that all day with bare hands...

    Thanks for the compliment!

    thats true, i like the lense it does pretty good, before i figured out that the Red solid dot in the bottom left corner was for focusing, some of my shots were slightly blurred, but now i figured it out
