    I am in the Redwoods, on the shore of Humboldt Bay.
    I do a few commercial jobs, each year. I used to do much more commercial work, but it took too much time away from photography, and decreased my pleasure in photography, as a whole. Nowadays, almost all of my commercial work is for people who cannot afford a photographer. This works out very well. It is amazing what real things people will offer you when they don't have money to offer.
    For the last 5 years, I've been using the Olympus E system, after 25 years with a Minolta SRT 101, and many Rokkor, and other lenses. Currently, I use the Olympus E3, ZD 12-60, ZD 50-200, ZD 7-14, Zuiko 1.4 teleconverter, and Zuiko 25mm extension tube, along with several Oly on and off-camera flashes. There is no crop factor for on these lenses, as they are all designed to be 'full frame' with the 4/3 sensor. The conversion factor is 2x for these lenses, to read in 35mm lens focal lengths, multiply by 2. Rich

    When the big storms come down to Humboldt Bay from the Gulf of Alaska, a long telephoto lens is the safest.

    When the Pacific is calm, she really is pacific.

    Lumber jacks in Northern California are pretty. Well, some of them.

    Too many martinis, and I ran out of pink elephants.

    Welcome! Love that black & white.

    Ditto to that.
    Am I jumping the gun, Baldrick, or are the words "I have a cunning plan" marching with ill-deserved confidence in the direction of this conversation?
