New Plans

17 July 2008

Dear J-

I have to get over this whole having stuff for the sake of having stuff notion — upon learning that I could pick up a rare Nikkor for a reasonable (though still pricey) amount, I immediately thought of ways to wangle a deal.  I try to be a man of my word, though, and I’ve supposedly forsworn additional lens purchases this year:  there’s nothing quite like a tax rebate to give me the false notion that we’ve become rich.

I’ll satisfy my urges with thoughts of depth of field adapters hacked together courtesy of an ES-E28.  There’s a curious thread on the front of it; now if I could only figure out how to build the requisite 46.5mm of extension, I could be in business with the already-extant Nikkors in the house.

Mike
