Life plays dirty tricks on you at times, today I've gone from the most excited man around to feeling like complete C**p.
Ordered myself a 70-200 f/2.8 ISii from Amazon , waited 3 days for it to arrive , get a call today to say Customs have it , pay GST and you can collect it.
So I pay, drive down the delivery depot and collect it.
first thoughts of the Amazon box was.. 'its light', don't know what all the fuss is about, regarding weight'..
Then driving home , it pops into my head, 'What if they sent the F/4?'
get home, open the Amazon box 'phew!' its the 2.8 IS ii box... excitedly pick it up...'Yeah its not heavy ' I thought..
I carefully open the the box, lift the case out, pull down the zip and pull the..........wait fort it.... 70-200 F/4 NON IS...
Nooo, I took the afternoon of to play and have spent the last 1hr on the phone with Amazon because she can't find the post code of my workplace to get it collected..
to top it off, they seem to out of stock of the 2.8 IS ii's
Yeah there are more important things happening ,but this hurt.
