    Japan hoard, still 4 days left. :Paranoid: and i have an urge to buy a nikon f2 that i do not need. ive got a problem. had to get the XT1 eye cup to get the 8% off. (needed to spend 10851 yen i think, before being eligible for the 8% off) best thing about japan so far? being able to test every camera out there without someone staring into your soul. their local "kmart" had a nikon d4s just hanging there, it was satisfying hearing the shutter go off. :)

    Bought myself a nice little X100 for something slightly more compact I can keep in my bag. It arrived today, in a small sized "padded" auspost satchel. That's it. No box, no bubblewrap, nothing... and it doesn't turn on...

    Hoping it just happens to be a ruined battery but it doesn't look good :upset:. Hopefully the seller is reasonable, otherwise Paypal dispute time!

    Update: It works! Bought a new battery after work and it has come to life. So either a dead battery or dead charger, lucky.

    Damn dude.. that sucks.

    I bought a MINT Olympus Trip 35 for a good price.. they did the same thing.. front ring was smashed in.. got a big refund but I was like you know.. you say you havent ever sent a camera before but where is your common sense? You just ruined a great working part of history.

    lol tell me about it, delayed shipment from Sigma to the vendor.
    At least they couriered it direct to me, and i got a $200 cashback so snagged quite cheap.

    Nice man enjoy!

    I picked up this for a reasonable price yesterday, though it's a bit softer than I expected at 100% crops, to be expected given the age I suppose! Chose this over the tokina purely because I wanted something that focused on both my bodies (D3100 doesn't have a motor) and the newer tokina is more expensive than this was. Gave it a clean and most of the muck on the rings came off it :)
