Searching the forums using Boolean operators
Is it possible to use boolean operators in a search?. For ex: if I want to search for 135mm f2 L lens in the sale forum, is there some way to search for 135mm OR "135 mm" or 135L. The reason being that some sellers might list 135mm f2 L lens as 135L and some as 135 mm etc.
Currently if I search for 135 it finds only the threads which have 135 by itself, it doesn't list the threads which have 135mm or 135L.

Re: Searching the forums using Boolean operators
Google Advanced Search, with http://photography-on-the.net as the domain to search within gives you additional capabilities. If you can't find it that way, I'm not sure that any search engine is fine-grained enough for your needs.
