:D ...Well I had Lens purchase Freakout today when i woke up.. fortunately it was too late to cancel and I'm now in that relaxed state you mention and looking forward to its arrival.

Just skimmed through your Flickr - you're going to love that lens, only problem is you'll need the 17mm too!

In fact, I'm not sure why you chose the 24 over the 17 looking at the first couple of pages. In any case I think a TS-E's are perfect for your shooting style and subjects.

I know what you're saying and it is playing on my mind...the only reason I went for the 24 was the ability to continue using my Lee system.

Unless there's something i don't know and the Lee system can be used on the 17?

BTW your Flickr has blown me away.. fantastic work.

apologies OP.. don't want to hijack your thread..:o

lol this how I bought my 40mm I himmed and hawed over it all while drinking Guinness extra stout out of my yard glass (yes it was full takes about 3 cans of Guinness to fill it) at the very bottom of the glass I clicked buy it.I woke up the next morning thinking oh crap but then realized I had money sitting in paypal so after I transferred it (from the sale of some other hobby stuff) my shorty forty cost me $0 :D

Wow. Double IPAs sure are strong! (9.3% alcohol in the O'Dell Myrcenary) I woke up very slowly this morning. But the good news? I certainly don't regret making a midnight stop at Adorama's website! :D

I just spent the last couple of hours reading about this lens and looking at images in POTN's awesome 24L Lens Sample thread.

I've really grown attached to fast prime lenses over the last year and a half, and even more so after moving to full-frame last summer. Canon's L prime lenses are superb and I've definitely been bitten by the bug. I'm looking forward to using this lens for environmental portraits, landscape, and night-time photographs.

Now the wait for Big Brown to come driving up my street begins...

The Double IPAs have worn off, but she arrived today and I'm just as infatuated as I was the first night I saw her online! :-D

Fun to see someone who lives in Jersey. I have been there last year! Nice Island! I took some pictures there which you can see on my Flickr.

Funny to see a picture from you from exactly the same location and almost the same composition! :p

Jdizzle,
You have good taste in fine scotch bud. If you get the chance to try the Belvenie 21 yr Portwood (if you hadn't already done so) please do so. It will not disappoint you.:cool:

I'd be happy to have either. Both are outside what I'm willing to spend though, doesn't make either any less nice though.

Tonight, I had a few O'dell Myrcenary IPAs (external link) and I began surfing for lenses.

The pungent floral smell and clean hop finish had me searching for an exceptionally clean piece of glass. The 24L's crisp character, combined with its ability to produce a stunningly sharp image, made this unyielding piece of glass a distinct standout amongst its peers. Its clean getaway sealed the deal and its sharp images produced a photograph unlike no other.

As it stands today, the 24L is a winner that provides a crisp and clean finish worthy of the highest attention of glass lovers around the world.
