If you were a dishonest person and wanted to teach him a lesson you could always report it stolen. Doesn't UPS have to cover it when a signature is required and they don't get it? Unless he's a dishonest person and signed for it himself.

After I told him my shock of not having to sign for it because of the expense and the fact that UPS online stated signature was required, he asked for my last name and input it into his system. Either way I still didn't sign for it, and if I were not home he was going to leave it at the doorstop with 2 of my other packages (that didn't require signing). Not cool, UPS. My house has been broken in to before so I wouldn't put it past anyone to steal from my porch.

Still experimenting with my brand new 1.2. Getting somewhat nervous because I'm finding that my focus points are not very sharp, even with faster shutter speeds.

Maybe your lens needs some micro adjust.

Thanks :-)

you wouldn't guess he's been sick for the last few weeks with a terrible cough. Poor little guy's been on antibiotics and liquid albuterol.

Does this lens focus as slow as the 85 1.2L?

Nope! it's much faster compared to, and definitely slower compared to the 50 1.8 and 50 1.4. Both lenses are worthy of reserved camera bag space.
