Write your letter and post!


Dear Santa,

I have been a good boy this year. I have been nice to my little sister and respectful to my parents. I listen to my wife and do what she tells me. I also make sure our little doggy is fed, bathed, and loved on. So, if I may i would like to share my list with you. :D

I would like three more lights, maybe a complete set of constants too, a Huge Softbox, two Octoboxes, a snoot, a large sripbox, and a boom arm or two.

Thank you for being a kind soul and delivering joy and toys throughout the world!

Your Faithful Friend,
Ryan

Dear Santa:
I am not nearly as greedy as Ryan so my list is short. Please Santa, can you put a 70-200 f/4 IS in my stocking? I am putting out the extra big one so it should fit just fine.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

Dear Santa,
I have a Macbook that I'm willing to trade for a 35L. The price difference can be my present. I'll even spike the milk for you. I know what you like ;).

Your friend,
Kris

And just to cover all the bases...

Dear Great Pumpkin,
Please bring me a 35L. My grandma has a pretty good pumpkin pie recipe. Not that it has anything to do with this. Just, you know, keep it in mind.

Your friend,
Kris

It got traded for my 24-105........which I love, but I am missing my 135. In fact, i am thinking of selling my 70-200 to buy the 135. That's how much I miss it :(
