Well, ya'll have convinced me to give this a shot. I'm curious about the material of the lens. As this thread goes back a few years and it seems that it started (and stayed?) with safety-glass lenses, do you think a polycarbonate lens would work or would it end up scratching too easily? Lincoln makes a poly one and is really cheap and Lowes and HD both carry them here in the states.
There's not any mountains, waterfalls, or beaches around here so I guess when I get set up I can take some shots of downtown and make it a ghost town with no traffic....oops, I forgot, that's how it looks already.
ETA: I'll pass on the poly lens. You know, I don't want a plastic lens...so why am I thinking about using a thick piece of plastic in something that is already know not to be photo-optical quality even in it's glass version?<duhhh> I'll go with glass...
