Well not really, but opening packages feels somewhat like that. The day started well with UPS arriving with a small box containing my f1.4 50mm lens back from repair. The focusing USM, and it’s controller had both had to be replaced. One doesn’t think one will miss it — but having to fall back to an f2.8 zoom you realise why the initial expenditure on the fast lens was worthwhile.
Then the postman came. I have been looking forward to getting Scott Kelby’s CS5 for digital photographers, and here it is — in time to read before Scott’s seminar in Islington.
Now what am I going to play with first 😀
