Thanks Paul, and I fully agree on your remark about Day prime opportunities!

Positive news: I tested negative.

BTW, I'll look for my Rokinon 135mm f3,5 (I wrote this down, doubting if it is the right name for the lens).
I will be back on Friday (now off for a midweek Twente) and will try in the weekend...

I am very sorry to hear that Paul. Any sight on a treatment already?
Fortunately you have a good eye for objects around the house too.

I will, just shot some deers (with my temporary Sigma 100-400, waiting for the Sony 200-600mm), some birds and a sunset.

Thanks!

May 28th operation. Back surgery is a last resort but there is no other solution and considering there are 120.000 people waiting for an operation in the Netherlands one can conclude I have a fair amount of priority.

The results don't show the age of the lens Paul.
I love 135.2, but the beetle is very nice too.
And good luck with the operation! Let's hope it brings what you hope for.

Apparently there is 80% success rate, 15% so so and 5% gets worse. But last year I learned all there is to know about prognosis and percentage. It means nothing for the individual case. So only time will tell.
