I'm not going down without a fight!
Sure, my new lens being broken out of the box sucks. And sitting on hold with B&H for a hour and passed back and forth between three different departments bites.
Yesterday, waking up to find my cell phone unusable as a phone (IM's still work fine), was annoying. (running over about now to see if it's the head set or the phone)
The dishwasher crapping out so I have to do the dishs by hand was just plain mean.
And then the stepping on broken glass this morning was a low blow.
But this will be a good year, and I will fight you tooth and nail to make it that way, so you might as well give up now and let the good times roll.
And for the rest of you, the lens thing... When I stop the lens down, two of the blades on the iris stop moving in at about f-16, so you end up with an oval iris, the more elongated the more you stop down. My lens will be in the mail tomorrow to B&H, and hopefully I should have a working model in a couple weeks.
